Call for Papers

7th International Conference on Soft Computing Models in Industrial and Environmental Applications

September, 2012
http://soco.usal.es

Soft computing represents a collection or set of computational techniques in machine learning, computer science and some engineering disciplines, which investigate, simulate and analyze very complex issues and phenomena. This workshop is mainly focused on its industrial applications.

SOCO 2012 provides interesting opportunities to present and discuss the latest theoretical advances and real world applications in this multidisciplinary research field.

SOCO 2012 will be held in the beautiful and historic city of Ostrava, Czech Republic. With exceptional opportunities for sightseeing and gastronomy, Ostrava is a wonderful venue for a great conference.

PROCEEDINGS (Tentative):

The SOCO'12 proceedings will be published by Springer in the prestigious Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing Series.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts written in English. All submissions will be refereed by experts in the field based on originality, significance, quality and clarity. All contributions must be original, should not have been published elsewhere and should not be intended to be published elsewhere during the review period. Accepted papers will be included in SOCO 2012 Proceedings that will published by Springer Verlag.
Papers should not exceed 10 pages and must comply with the format of AISC Series (see Instructions for Authors at Springer Website - Word Template).

NOTICE: All papers for SOCO 2012 must be initially submitted in electronic form (PDF format) using the online submission system.

Papers should be written in English.

PAPERS FORMAT

Papers must be prepared according to Springer‚s templates (MS Word or LaTeX format) for the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing volume series (www.springer.com/series/4240).

PUBLICATION

All accepted papers will be published in a special volume of Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing (Springer), indexed by ISI Proceedings, DBLP and Springerlink, among others.

For each paper, at least one author is required to register and attend the workshop to present the paper, so as to have it included in the conference proceedings.
