Special Issue on: "Computational Intelligence: Theory, Methods and Applications"

Guest Editors:
Prof. Xiao-Zhi Gao, Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland
Dr. Sugam Sharma, Iowa State University, USA
Dr. Ramesh C. Poonia, Dr. Vijander Singh and Dr. Linesh Raja, Amity University, Jaipur, India

This special issue aims to share the findings of researchers and scholars in the field of knowledge mining, web intelligence, multi agent system and knowledge-based machine learning. It will not only take stock of trends and developments in the globally competitive environment, but will also provide future directions for young researchers and practitioners. The special issue will be of immense benefit to researchers, academicians, industry professionals and participants from technical institutes and R&D organisations, and also so students working in the field of artificial intelligence.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Smart Computing and Communication (SmartTech-2017), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
