Special Session on Genetic Fuzzy Systems: Novel Approaches

Co-Chairs: Rafael Alcalá and Yusuke Nojima

After almost forty years of development, fuzzy systems have demonstrated their superb ability to solve different problems arising in various application domains. In the last two decades, the cooperative framework established made the research interest move to augment fuzzy systems with learning and adaptation capabilities. Since the first pioneer works dated back to 1991, one of the most successful approaches to hybridize fuzzy systems with learning and adaptation methods, apart of course from fuzzy neural networks, has resulted in so-called Genetic Fuzzy Systems. These hybrid computational intelligence techniques augment the approximate reasoning method of fuzzy systems with the learning capabilities of evolutionary algorithms.

Objetives and scopes

The aim of the session is to provide a forum to disseminate and discuss recent and significant research efforts on Genetic Fuzzy Systems in order to deal with current challenges on this topic. The session is therefore open to any high quality submission from researchers working at the particular intersection of evolutionary algorithms and fuzzy systems called Genetic Fuzzy Systems. Potential authors for this Special Session should present original research and innovative results including (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Evolutionary Learning/Tuning of Fuzzy Rule-Based Systems
  • Evolutionary Selection of Fuzzy Rules
  • Genetic Fuzzy Systems and the Interpretability-Accuracy Trade-off
  • Multi-objective Genetic Fuzzy Systems
  • Genetic Fuzzy Neural Networks
  • Genetic Fuzzy Clustering
  • Applications of Genetic Fuzzy Systems

All submissions will be refereed by at least three experts in the field based on originality, significance, quality and clarity. Every submitted paper to HAIS'08 will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee. Accepted contributions are to be published in the HAIS'08 Proceedings.

Papers must be prepared according to the LNCS-LNAI styletemplate (only MS-WORD format) (see: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and must be no more than 8 pages long, including figures and bibliography.

NOTICE: At least one author of each accepted paper must register in order for the paper to be included in the HAIS 2008 Proceedings.


  • Deadline for papers: 30th April, 2008
  • Notification of papers acceptance: 30th May, 2008
  • Deadline for camera-ready papers: 20th June, 2008
