    Computational Intelligence Modeling Techniques and Applications
    A book edited by Ranadhir Ghosh, Moumita Ghosh, John Yearwood and
    Sidhivinayak Kulkarni, University of Ballarat, Australia
    Computational intelligence (CI) is an integrated science involving
    fundamental and applied research that covers broadly the areas of
    evolutionary computing, fuzzy computing, neuro-computing or various
    types of hybrid models combining any of these. CI is rather an
    interdisciplinary intuitive synergism between those and many more at the
    verge of computer sciences, mathematics and engineering. Learning is an
    essential process for CI modelling. A CI-based approach is mainly a
    black box solution for solving problems that mainly consists of two
    major steps - 1) Finding a suitable model for the problem, 2) Optimizing
    the model using the process of learning. The process can be iterative
    depending on the acceptance level of performance/accuracy obtained by
    the optimization process. Although the name "black box modelling" is
    sometimes irksome among the scientific community, it should be noted
    here that the nature of certain problems does not permit a white box
    solution for solving the problem. There are many instances where the
    system dynamics or its nature cannot be ascertained, but building a
    model that can generate the same pattern as the real world model can be
    a huge benefit in understanding many aspects of the process or system.
    The Overall Objective of the Book
    This book will address state-of-the art solutions for many real-world
    problems in business, science and the engineering domain. It delivers a
    highly-readable and fully-systematic approach with a clear, sound and
    comprehensive analysis and design practices, using CI for modelling and
    solving in areas such as computer vision, manufacturing, business,
    information retrieval, biology and robotics. This book provides
    state-of-the art solutions in many domains, each containing selected
    cutting-edge modelling solutions for those areas. Through reading
    various CI modelling techniques in a variety of real-world applications,
    the reader will find the rationale of such approaches, as well as a good
    grasp of this emerging and exciting field. We believe that this book
    will further enhance the understanding of CI and help the readers extend
    the idea of modelling using a CI approach for many more real-world
    problems that are impossible to be compiled in one volume of a text book.
    The Target Audience
    *University, Industry and government organisation researchers interested

    Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before June
    15, 2006, a 2-5 page manuscript proposal clearly explaining the mission
    and concerns of the proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will
    be notified by July 10, 2006, about the status of their proposals and
    sent chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be
    submitted by September 15, 2006. All submitted chapters will be reviewed
    on a double-blind review basis. The book is scheduled to be published by
    Idea Group Inc., publisher of the Idea Group Publishing, Information
    Science Publishing, IRM Press, CyberTech Publishing and Idea Group
    Reference imprints.
