Call for papers: WCCI 2014 Special Session "Lattice Computing"

Aim and scope

During the last ten years, a novel analysis of fuzzy intervals based on lattice theory has paved the way for novel extensions of major computational intelligence paradigms including the: fuzzy inference systems, fuzzy adaptive resonance theory and self-organizing maps. Novelties include 1) accommodation, in principle, of granular system inputs, 2) computing with words, and 3) introduction of tunable nonlinearities. Evolutionary computation is often employed for tuning performance.

In addition, lattice theory is also used instrumentally in different domains including logic as well as reasoning. Likewise, lattice theory is used in mathematical morphology toward signal processing as well as in formal concept analysis toward knowledge-representation. Lately, the term Lattice Computing, or LC for short, has been introduced as “an evolving collection of tools and methodologies that process lattice-ordered data including logic values, numbers, sets, symbols, graphs, etc”. In the aforementioned sense, LC emerges with the potential of unifying rigorously the treatment of disparate types of data either separately or jointly in any combination.

This special session is meant as a forum for researchers with interests in LC. The objective is to present high-quality, state-of-the-art research results. An array of novel mathematical tools, design practices and real world applications will be presented. Emphasis is on reasoning, knowledge-representation, signal processing, system modeling, clustering, classification and the cross-fertilization of different technologies. Topics of interest include but are not limited to

  • Lattice algebra neural networks 
  • Fuzzy lattice reasoning
