In recent years there has been a growing interest in the need for designing
intelligent systems to solve problems in control and planning for robotic
systems. The most challenging problem for the intelligent robotic systems is
that there are always uncertainties in the real world. These uncertainties
are primarily due to sensor imprecision and unpredictability of the
environment, that is, lack of full knowledge of the environment
characteristics and dynamics. Soft Computing techniques including fuzzy
logic, neural network, genetic algorithms, and others, on other hand, have
shown their great potential to solve demanding real-world problems with
uncertain and unpredictable environments. They have provided with important
practical tools for constructing intelligent systems. Therefore, it is
interesting to gather current trends and provide a high quality forum for
scientist and engineers working in soft computing & robotics areas.

This Special Issue will be in part based on a special session on intelligent
robotic applications at FLINS2000 (the 4th Int. FLINS conference on
Intelligent Techniques and Soft Computing in Nuclear Science and
Engineering, August 28-30, 2000, Bruges, Belgium), that will report recent
research results. However direct submissions to the special issue are also
encouraged.

The main objective of this special issue is to gather a peer-reviewed
collection of high quality papers in the relevant topic areas. The focus
will be especially on those papers that provide theoretical/analytical
solutions to the problems of real interest in Fuzzy Set techniques possibly
combined with other soft computing tools, for intelligent robotic systems.
It is not easy to present a full review of this growing field in a single
issue. Thus, this special issue will include the most recent advances of
Fuzzy Set and/or combined with other soft computing techniques in robotics.
 
The Special Issue will consider papers addressing the role if Fuzzy Logic in
the framework of soft computing techniques for the design, analysis,
optimisation, control, learning, motion planning, obstacle avoidance,
navigation, localisation and mapping, vision-based control, gait generation,
sensor fusion, and etc., for robots.
 
The following criteria will be used in screening the papers:
- Quality and originality in theory and methodology,
- Application oriented papers exhibiting originality with reasonable theory
involved,
- Relevance to soft computing and intelligent robotic systems.
Prospective authors are invited to send the paper until the 15th of November
2000 by email (ps, PDF, or MS files) or mail (4 copies) to:
