About HIS'18:
Conference Objective:

Hybridization of intelligent systems is a promising research field of 
modern artificial/computational intelligence concerned with the 
development of the next generation of intelligent systems. A fundamental 
stimulus to the investigations of Hybrid Intelligent Systems (HIS) is 
the awareness in the academic communities that combined approaches will 
be necessary if the remaining tough problems in artificial/computational 
intelligence are to be solved. Hybrid Intelligent Systems are getting 
popular due to their capabilities in handling several real-world 
complexities involving imprecision, uncertainty and vagueness. The 
objectives of HIS'18 are to increase the awareness of the research 
community of the broad spectrum of hybrid techniques, to bring together 
AI researchers from around the world to present their cutting-edge 
results, to discuss the current trends in HIS research, to develop a 
collective vision of future opportunities, to establish international 
collaborative opportunities, and as a result to advance the state of the 
art of the field. HIS'18 invites novel contributions/papers of soft 
computing and pattern recognition from fundamental aspects to various 
practical applications. All accepted and registered papers will be 
included in the conference proceedings expected to be published by Springer.
