International Journal of Hybrid Intelligent Systems, IOS Press, The Netherlands

The International Journal of Hybrid Intelligent Systems (IJHIS) is a peer refereed journal on the theory and applications of hybrid and integrated intelligent systems. The key objective of IJHIS is to provide the academic community with a medium for presenting original research and applications related to the simultaneous use of two or more intelligent techniques. Rather than publishing papers in one particular area of expertise, the journal aims to be the main forum for publishing papers that involve the use of two or more intelligent techniques and approaches, such as neural networks, traditional knowledge-based methods, fuzzy techniques, genetic algorithms, agent-based techniques, case based reasoning, etc. The combination or integration of more distinct methodologies can be done in any form, either by a modular integration of two or more intelligent methodologies, which maintains the identity of each methodology, or by fusing one methodology into another, or by transforming the knowledge representation in one methodology into another form of representation, characteristic to another methodology.

International Journal of Bio-Inspired Computation (IJBIC), Inderscience Publishers, UK

The major goal of IJBIC is the publication of new research results on bio-inspired computation methods and their applications. IJBIC provides the scientific community and industry with a vehicle whereby ideas using two or more conventional and computational intelligence based techniques can be discussed. Bio-inspired computation is an umbrella term for different computational approaches that are based on principles or models of biological systems. This class of methods, such as evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimisation, and swarm intelligence, complements traditional techniques in the sense that the former can be applied to large-scale applications where little is known about the underlying problem and where the latter approaches encounter difficulties. Therefore, bio-inspired methods are becoming increasingly important in the face of the complexity of today's demanding applications, and accordingly they have been successfully used in various fields ranging from computer engineering and mechanical engineering to chemical engineering and molecular biology. IJBIC is especially intended for furthering the overall understanding of new algorithms simulated with various bio-phenomena beyond the current focus, i.e. genetic algorithms, Tabu search, etc. Its objective is improvement in theory and applications of the bio-computation field. Algorithms should therefore be carefully designed and appropriately analysed, and authors are encouraged to assess the statistical validity of their results whenever possible.

International Journal of Grid and Utility Computing (IJGUC), Inderscience Publishers, UK

The IJGUC is a high-quality double-blind refereed journal on Grid and Utility Computing that serves as a forum for individuals in the field to publish their research as well as for interested readers. IJGUC will facilitate communication and networking between members of the Grid and Utility Computing community in a period where considerable changes are taking place in the field, and will stimulate production of high-quality Grid Computing solutions and architectures.
