Special Session on Hardware Architectures for Genetic, Neural and Fuzzy


Genetic Algorithms (GA), Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) as well as
Systems (FS) are becoming omnipresent in almost every intelligent
design. Just to name few, engineering, control, economics and
are some of the scientific fields that enjoy the use of ANN and FS.
Unfortunately, the majority of the applications is complex and so
requires a
large computational effort to yield useful and practical results.
dedicated hardware for evolutionary, neural and fuzzy computation is
becoming a key issue for designers. With the spread of reconfigurable
hardware such as FPGAs and FPAAs, digital as well as analog hardware
implementations of such computation become cost-effective.

The focus of this special session will be on all aspects of for
hardware implementations for genetic algorithms, neural networks and
controllers. Hybrid implementations using co-design methodology are
welcome. The main topics can be listed as follows:

Topics include, but are not limited to:
*  Hardware implementations of genetic algorithms;
*  Hardware implementations of Neural Networks;
*  Hardware implementations of fuzzy systems;
*  Hardware/Software co-design of GA;
*  Hardware/Software co-design of ANNs;
*  Hardware/Software co-design of FSs;
*  Hardware for hybrid systems

Important dates:
*  Paper Submission: 31 January 2006
*  Decision Notification: 15 March 2006
*  Camera-Ready Submission: 15 April 2006

Authors of accepted papers in this special session will be asked to
them for possible inclusion in a planned special issue of the
Journal Neurocomputing
(http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/journaldescription.cws_home/505628/description ),
published by Elsevier (http://www.elsevier.com ). More details about
