                                    CALL FOR PAPERS
                              JOURNAL OF SOFT COMPUTING
                    SPECIAL ISSUE FUZZY LOGIC AND THE INTERNET

    Dear Colleagues,

    We are planning to edit a special issue of Soft Computing Journal on Fuzzy Logic
    and the Internet. This issue is intended to highlight recent technical advances
    in fuzzy logic that has found applications in different areas of Internet. A
    book
    based on this special issue is scheduled at the later time by Springer Verlag
    Publisher.

    Broadly, fuzzy logic and Internet subsumes but is not limited to the following
    areas:

    1. Search Engines and Web Crawlers
    2. Agent Technology (i.e., Web-Based Collaborative and Distributed Agents)
    3. Adaptive and Evolutionary techniques for dynamic environment
      (i.e. Evolutionary search engine and text retrieval, Dynamic learning and
       adaptation of the Web Databases, etc)
    4. Fuzzy Queries in Multimedia Database Systems
    5. Query Based on User Profile
    6. Information Retrievals
    7. Summary of Documents
    8. Information Fusion
    9. Association Rule Mining for Terms-Documents and Text Mining

    “Unlike classical logic, fuzzy logic is concerned, in the main, with modes of
    reasoning which are approximate rather than exact. In Internet, almost
    everything,
    especially in the realm of search, is approximate in nature. Putting these two
    facts together, an intriguing thought merges; in time, fuzzy logic may replace
    classical logic as what may be called the “brainware” of the Internet". Lotfi
    A. Zadeh.

    Since the subject matter is rather broad and multi-disciplinary in nature, we
    will have three major components to this volume. These components will
    undoubtedly
     crossover in both fundamental theory and application areas. However, we have
    made
     the arbitrary segmentation in part for the division of labour between the guest
    editors.

    The three parts will include:

    1. Fuzzy Logic and Search Engine, Fuzzy Queries, Text Data Mining, Text
    Summarization, etc
    2. User Profile, User Interface, User Interactions, Web-Based Agents, MultiAgent
    Systems, etc
    3. Dynamic Learning and Adaptation, Collaboration, Evolution, etc

    We would like to solicit original papers covering both application and new
    advances in related technologies. Please let one of the undersigned knows
    if you would like to submit a paper to this special issue by April 25, 2001.
    Submission may be sending the paper as an email attachment in Adobe Acrobat PDF,
    Microsoft Word, Postscript, or by air mail. Proposals must be sent within
    May 25, 2001. Publication guidelines can be found on Soft Computing Web page
    at http://link.springer.de/link/service/journals/00500/instr.htm “ Instructions
    for Authors”.
     
    Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by September 24, 2001.
    Final versions of accepted papers are due for November 2, 2001.
