Soft computing is currently receiving much attention and is a highly multidisciplinary area of research.

Intelligent information systems is a current research area applied to many domains such as business intelligence, data analysis and mining. It provides powerful and effective tools for problem solving in a variety of business modelling tasks such as data visualisation, data pre-processing, data engineering, data mining techniques, neurocomputing, evolutionary computing, fuzzy techniques, expert systems, knowledge filtering and post-processing.

This special issue will cover the latest developments in the application of soft computing techniques in modelling intelligent information systems.
