About these proceedings


These volumes constitute the Proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Soft Computing Applications, or SOFA 2014, held on 24-26 July 2014 in Timisoara, Romania. This edition was organized by the University of Belgrade, Serbia in conjunction with Romanian Society of Control Engineering and Technical Informatics (SRAIT) - Arad Section, The General Association of Engineers in Romania - Arad Section, Institute of Computer Science, Iasi Branch of the Romanian Academy and IEEE Romanian Section.

                The Soft Computing concept was introduced by Lotfi Zadeh in 1991 and serves to highlight the emergence of computing methodologies in which the accent is on exploiting the tolerance for imprecision and uncertainty to achieve tractability, robustness and low solution cost. Soft computing facilitates the use of fuzzy logic, neurocomputing, evolutionary computing and probabilistic computing in combination, leading to the concept of hybrid intelligent systems.        The combination of such intelligent systems tools and a large number of applications introduce a need for a synergy of scientific and technological disciplines in order to show the great potential of Soft Computing in all domains.

                The conference papers included in these proceedings, published

post conference, were grouped into the following area of research:

·         Image, Text and Signal Processing

  • Intelligent Transportation
  • Modeling and Applications
  • Biomedical Applications
  • Neural Network and Applications
  • Knowledge-Based Technologies for Web Applications, Cloud Computing, Security, Algorithms

and Computer Networks

  • Knowledge-Based Technologies
  • Soft Computing Techniques for Time Series Analysis
  • Soft Computing and Fuzzy Logic in Biometrics
  • Fuzzy Applications Theory and Fuzzy Control
  • Bussiness Process
  • Methods and Applications in Electrical Engineering

    The volumes provide useful information to professors, researchers and graduated students in area of soft computing techniques and applications, as they report new research work on challenging issues.
