Call For Papers

Greetings from FLINS2018!

We are very much delighted to invite you, on behalf of the organizing committee, to submit a paper and participate as a speaker at the upcoming “13th International FLINS Conference on Data Science and Knowledge Engineering for Sensing Decision Support (FLINS2018) during August 21-24, 2018 at Belfast, the birthplace of Titanic and the capital city of Northern Ireland, UK.

FLINS, an acronym introduced in 1994 and originally for Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent Technologies in Nuclear Science, is now extended into a well-established international research forum to advance the foundations and applications of computational intelligence for applied research in general and for complex engineering and decision support systems. The principal mission of FLINS is bridging the gap between machine intelligence and real complex systems via joint research between universities and international research institutions, encouraging interdisciplinary research and bringing multi-discipline researchers together.

FLINS 2018 is the thirteenth in a series of conferences on computational intelligence systems. It follows the successful previous FLINS conference since 1994. All accepted papers (oral and poster presentations) in FLINS2018 will be published as a book by the World Scientific and it will be included in the ISI proceedings, will be included in EI Compendex for indexing as well as indexed in Scopus. Special issues of several SCI indexed journals will be devoted to a strict refereed selection of extended papers. FLINS 2018 will be jointly held with the 11th International Conference on Intelligent Systems and Knowledge Engineering (ISKE2018).

Within the key theme of FLINS on computational intelligence and its applications, the main theme of the FLINS2018 conference is “Data Science and Knowledge Engineering for Sensing Decision Support”. The 2018 International FLINS Conference (FLINS 2018) provides an international forum that brings together those actively involved in areas of interest to Data Science and Knowledge Engineering with their applications in decision making problems under uncertainty and incompleteness to support sensible decision making in different areas. The conference will feature plenary talks given by world renowned scholars, regular sessions with broad coverage, and special sessions focusing on popular topics.

FLINS2018 invites submissions related to all aspects of computational intelligence and its application, specially within the following four research fields, which can be theoretical formalisms, methodologies; algorithms investigation, survey or practical applications:

1) Contributions on development of models, algorithms and systems to handle multiple and heterogeneous information for sensing decision making purpose. The approaches could be either numerical or symbolic, or both; could be based on fuzzy/possibility theory, neural network, genetic algorithm, rough set theory, different varieties of machine learning/data mining methods, probability theory and belief function theory, and different varieties of logic based approaches (classical logics or non-classical logics);
2) Contributions on investigating, reviewing and assessing the principles, explanation, and strategies on how humans represent and use incomplete and uncertain data and knowledge from a cognitive science perspective;
3) Contributions on investigating, reviewing and assessing the principles, algorithms, methodologies and tools on how artificial intelligence can help in data science, data mining, big data, machine learning, and predictive analytics;
4) Especially welcome written contributions representing advanced theories and innovative applications in computational intelligence as well as the integration of both quantitative and qualitative formalisms and modelling approaches in science, engineering, business and education.

Important Dates:

• Full paper submission deadline: January 30, 2018
• Notification of acceptance: March 20, 2018
• Camera-ready paper submission: April 10, 2018
• Authors registration: April 20, 2018
