Recent Advances in Information Technology

Call for Papers

Information technology has been one of the most encouraging research areas throughout the globe over the past two decades. From commerce and government to scientific discovery, healthcare, education, entertainment, and environmental management, information technology is indispensable and will continue to fuel further advances in all facets of human endeavors.

In this special issue, we concentrate mainly on the intelligent computing techniques as well as the emerging applications of information technology. Its aim is to unify the picture of contemporary intelligent computing techniques as an integral concept that highlights the trends in advanced computational intelligence and bridges theoretical research with applications.

We are soliciting papers that present recent results, as well as more speculative presentations that discuss research challenges, define new applications, and propose methodologies for evaluating and the roadmap for achieving the vision of artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, evolutionary computing, information retrieval, computational neuroscience and bioscience, soft computing, human computer interface issues, and so forth. Topics covering industrial issues/applications and academic research into intelligent computing will be included. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Computational neuroscience and bioscience
  • Cloud computing
  • Decision support systems
  • Evolutionary computing
  • Human computer interface
  • Information retrieval
  • Intelligent agent and web applications
