Call for Papers FUZZ-IEEE 2015 Special Session "Methods and Applications of Fuzzy Cognitive Maps"

Fuzzy Cognitive Map is an extension of cognitive maps for modeling complex causal relationships easily, both qualitatively and quantitatively. During the past decade, FCMs played a vital role in the applications of diverse scientific areas, such as social and political sciences, engineering, information technology, robotics, expert systems, medicine, education, prediction, environment etc. FCMs combine fuzzy logic and neural networks inheriting their main advantages. From an Artificial Intelligence perspective, FCMs are dynamic networks with learning capabilities, whereas more and more data is available to model the problem, the system becomes better at adapting itself and reaching a solution. They gained momentum due to their dynamic characteristics and learning capabilities. These capabilities make them essential for modeling and decision making tasks as they improve the performance of these tasks.

The proposed special session aims to present highly technical papers describing new FCM models and methodologies addressing any of the following specific topics: theoretical aspects, innovative applications and FCMs extensions. Topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Methods on FCM modeling
  • FCMs for Approximate Reasoning
  • Knowledge Representation 
  • Learning Algorithms for FCMs
  • FCMs in Decision Making & Control Systems
  • FCMs in Business Management
  • FCMs in Engineering
  • FCMs in Agricultural Systems
  • FCMs in Data Mining
  • FCMs in Computer Vision Tasks
  • FCMs for Stakeholders analysis
  • FCMs in Biomedical Engineering
  • FCMs in Pattern Recognition
  • FCMs in Medical Decision Support
  • FCM extensions
  • Fuzzy Grey Cognitive Maps
  • Intuitionistic FCMs
  • Hybrid FCM-based approaches
  • Dynamic Cognitive Networks
