Special Session on Fuzzy-based Simulation Approaches in Science and Engineering
(FSASE 2018)


As part of
The 16th International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2018)
July 16 – 20, 2018
Orléans, France

Paper Submission Deadline: April 12, 2018

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters


The special session 
on Fuzzy-based Simulation Approaches in Science and Engineering is conceived to be a forum for the exchange of ideas among researchers who are interested in computational models for fuzzy systems (e.g., for simulating fuzzy dynamical systems) and researchers who use fuzzy-based techniques in non-fuzzy domains (e.g., for simulating the states of networked systems). 

In the last decades, computing methods based on fuzzy logic significantly contributed to the development of intelligent systems for decision making, identification, pattern recognition, optimization, and control. On the other hand, fuzzy set theory offered a way for modelling engineering systems/processes or biological phenomena associated with vague, uncertain or imprecise information. 

The aim of this event is twofold: offering an overview of the current research and outlining new trends in the fuzzy-inspired simulation field.  Both relevant theoretical contributions and applications are welcomed. 

The FSASE Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to the following areas: 
    • Fuzzy logic approaches in Evolutionary Computation, Swarm Intelligence, Genetic Algorithms
    • Fuzzy approximation techniques
    • Fuzzy data analysis, clustering, classification
    • Adaptive, hierarchical and hybrid fuzzy systems 
    • Uncertainty theory
    • Fuzzy modeling, Fuzzy simulation and qualitative models
    • Fuzzy dynamical systems
    • Fuzzy systems with big data and cloud computing, fuzzy analytics
    • Fuzzy control, robotics, sensors, and architectures 
    • Fuzzy decision models and support
    • Fuzzy bio-inspired models and logic
    • Fuzzy solutions in application domains (healthcare, manufacturing, pattern recognition and learning, transportation, energy systems, automation, ...)
                You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to high performance Fuzzy-based Simulation Approaches. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere until it appears in HPCS proceedings, in the case of acceptance, or notified otherwise. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to  for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of submission you have.  Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. 

                Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the special session paper submission site at xxx .  Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. 

                Conference Policies
                Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, language, and references.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2018 conference to present the paper at the special session as scheduled. By submitting the paper to the HPCS conference, all authors agree to abide by all HPCS conference paper submission, publication and presentation policies as well as following ethical and professional codes of conduct, including those of the professional co-sponsoring organizations. For more information, please refer to the Authors Info and Registration Info pages. 

                Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2018 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly. 

                SPECIAL ISSUE
                Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for possible publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed information will soon be announced and will be made available on the conference website. 

                If you have any questions about paper submission or the special session, please contact the special session organizers.
