Soft Computing provides rapid dissemination of important results in soft computing foundations, methodologies and applications. It encourages the integration of soft computing theoretical and practical results into both everyday and advanced applications. The journal aims to connect the ideas and techniques of soft computing with other disciplines. Soft Computing is dedicated to system solutions based on soft computing paradigms. It provides rapid dissemination of important results in soft computing, a fusion of research in evolutionary algorithms, genetic programming, swarm intelligence, neural science, neural net systems, fuzzy set theory, fuzzy systems, Bayesian networks, chaos theory, chaotic systems. By linking the ideas and techniques of soft computing with other disciplines, the journal serves as a unifying platform that fosters comparisons, extensions, and new applications. As a result, the journal is an international forum for all scientists engaged in research and development in this fast growing field.
