Significance of the Special Session:
The topic of the Special session "Soft Computing Models for Noise Pollution" is a major scientific problem.Noise has always been an important environmental problem for man. The growth in noise pollution is unsustainable because it involves direct, as well as cumulative, adverse health effects. It also adversely affects future generations, and has socio-cultural, esthetic and economic effects. The cause-effect relationships reported in the literature are based on Questionnaire responses obtained from social surveys. These responses are generally words and propositions drawn from a natural language. For example, noise level, age, and sleep disturbance may be represented by the words (low, medium, high),(young, middle-aged, adult, old), and (slight, moderate, extreme) respectively. These linguistic variables (words) cannot be precisely measured and inherently contain imprecision, uncertainty, and partial truth. They are basically the perception and manipulation of perception is the most remarkable capability of the human mind. One basic difference between perceptions and measurements is that measurements are expressed by numerical values whereas perceptions are represented by linguistic words. Therefore, soft computing seems to be the natural choice for developing a model to study the effects of noise pollution on humans.
This special session will focus on the following themes:
Soft computing techniques for predicting noise pollution
Fusion of statistical methods and soft computing techniques in noise pollution
Soft computing techniques for control aspects of noise pollution
Soft computing techniques for predicting noise-induced effects on humans such as annoyance, sleep disturbance, speech interference, hearing loss, and reduction in work efficiency
Fuzzy Systems, fuzzy logic and possibility theory for various noise-induced effects
Fuzzy system modeling and simulation for noise pollution
Neural network applications for various noise-induced effects
Fusion of neural network and fuzzy systems for noise pollution
Fusion of fuzzy systems and evolutionary algorithms for predicting noise pollution
Fusion of neural network and evolutionary algorithms in noise pollution
Fusion of neural network- fuzzy systems- evolutionary algorithms in noise pollution
Genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, genetic programming and evolutionary programming applications in noise pollution
Hybrid intelligent systems for predicting noise pollution
Hybrid intelligent systems for controlling noise pollution
Submission of Papers:
Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and related topics are solicited. Include on the cover page (PDF/MS-Word document): authors' names, affiliations, addresses, and email addresses. First author will be assumed to be the corresponding author until and unless specified. Manuscripts should not exceed six (6) pages including figures, tables, and references.
Consistent with standard practice, all papers will be peer reviewed by at least two independent referees of the field. Papers will be selected based on their correctness, originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Initial selection will be based on full papers. Reviewer comments will be provided to the authors. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. The Proceedings of the Conference will be published by Springer Verlag, Germany in the Advances in Soft Computing Series. The papers are to be formatted according to the author's instructions found at the following link:
Microsoft Word Template http://isda04.softcomputing.net/
