Image processing for hard problems in biomedical images and visualization on technological devices


The wide range of technological devices and newly developed devices require adaptation and/or renewal of the image processing approach. Extracting important information from a wide range of images used in those devices, urgently require new image processing techniques to be developed.  In this framework, new image enhancement, feature extraction, vision modelling, and novel visualization techniques are important key factors for extracting important information from a wide range of possessed images. Automatical image processing on data collected by different devices in order to provide high-quality information is at the base of this research.

This Special Issue intends to provide a comprehensive overview of recent, theoretical and/or practical advances in image enhancement, segmentation, feature extraction, texture analysis, image fusion, vision modelling applied to image processing and advanced visualization methods and devices, and to discuss their potential applications to similar problems in image processing and computer vision.

Numerical simulations for integer and non-integer differential equation under uncertainty conditions with applications


A few years ago, probability theory was a unique tool in hands of the experts dealing with situations of uncertainty appearing in problems of science and in everyday life. However, nowadays, with the development of fuzzy set theory—introduced by Zadeh in 1965—and the extension of fuzzy logic, the situation has changed. In fact, these new mathematical tools provided scientists with the opportunity to model under conditions that are vague or not precisely defined, thus succeeding in mathematically solving problems whose statements are expressed in our natural language. As a result, the spectrum of application has been rapidly extended, covering all of the physical sciences, economics and management, expert systems like financial planners, diagnostic, meteorological, information retrieval, control systems, etc., industry, robotics, decision making, programming, medicine, biology, humanities, education and almost all the other sectors of the human activity, including human reasoning itself. On the other hand, Fractional order calculus is as old as integer calculus, although until recently its application was exclusively in mathematics. Various types of real systems are better described with non-integer order differential and difference equations. This characteristic has attracted engineers’ interest in recent years, and now it is a tool used in almost every area of science. At present, the field of fractional calculus has attracted the interest of scientists in many areas, including mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, and even finance and social sciences. The main topics of the present Special Issue are related to the mathematical modelling of fractional systems, stability, controllability, observability, continuous and discrete time fractional systems, fractional control systems, and applications of fractional systems.  The aim of this session is mainly to demonstrate the active and current linkages between these two important and hotspot topics. Moreover, this Special Session gives an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to communicate their ideas in the following topics but not limited to them:

  • Dynamical and stochastic systems based upon fuzzy fractional calculus
  • Operators of fractional calculus and their applications under uncertainty
  • Fuzzy fractional-order ODEs and PDEs
  • Fuzzy fractional calculus and its applications
  • Fractional-order integro-differential equations under fuzzy notion
  • Fuzzy fixed point theory and monotone operator theory
  • Numerical estimation of fuzzy fractional order systems

Special Session on Recent Fuzzy Applications in Technology and Engineering  Management Decision Making


While considering the complexity and intrinsic vagueness in technology and engineering management problems especially in current fast changing environment, decision makers working in different industries frequently tackle difficulties in expressing judgments only by using crisp measures. Engineering and technology management decisions are usually multi-dimensional and increasingly complex and uncertain where traditional (crisp) multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) tools face challenges in producing most beneficial selections. Fuzzy logic extensions like intuitionistic, hesitant, neutrosophic, and spherical fuzzy versions of MCDM methods like AHP, TOPSIS, VIKOR, etc. can offer better results in dealing with this kind of decision problems. A huge proportion of the literature has focused on developing new extensions of these aforementioned MCDM methods but one of the biggest gaps in the literature has been the lack of real life applications. With this special issue, our aim is to encourage academics, independent researchers and especially industrial participants about using these fuzzy methods in real life applications so that the common criticisms on this issue may be addressed. Topics of interest are given but not limited to:

  • Contractor/vendor selection decisions
  • ERP system selection decisions
  • Technology/method selection decisions
  • Innovativeness decisions
  • Cloud computing decisions
  • Group decision making approaches for managerial purposes

Logic, Algebra and Computer Science


It is often the case that one says computer science is an application of logic and algebra. There are many reason for that, starting from the historical roots of computer science and the desire to automate reasoning. Nowadays, many algebraic structures, such as Kleene algebras and relation algebras, have diversified considerably to cover more and more application areas.


 We invite submissions of original research papers, survey and review articles and historical studies in the general fields of algebra, logic and their applications to computer science. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Algebraic structures such as residuated lattices, Boolean algebras, semirings, semigroups, Kleene algebras, relation algebras, etc.
  • Logical systems such as first order logic, modal logic, temporal logic, description Logics, etc.
  • The interconnections between algebraic structures and logical systems, and their applications to computer science, e.g., automata, concurrency and programming languages.



Preparation of a manuscript for all sessions:

The manuscripts should be written in English and consists of the following compulsory elements (in the order stated below)

  • Title
  • The first and last names of the author(s),
  • An abstract (300 words or less),
  • Keywords,
  • The article text,
  • The affiliation (organization, postal address, city, zip code, country), e-mail, for each author; for a multi-author paper the corresponding author should be marked with an asterisk,

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a peer-review process. Accepted papers of the conference will be published by Springer in a book series entitled 'Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing' and candidate papers will be sent to the mentioned journals to review and publish as a special issue. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. Upon acceptance, the authors may be asked to format their paper according to the proceeding style and editorial suggestions..
