CFP: BICT 2014 Special Track on Body Area Soft Computing (BASC)

8th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS)

December 1 (Mon) - December 3, 2014 (Wed)

We cannot discuss brain functions if they separated from body functions. In the research field of embodied knowledge that analyzes physical motions, it is necessary to acquire the knowledge using neural networks, fuzzy systems and topological models, and to find a reciprocal relationship between brain functions and the knowledge structure.

The main aim of this session is to introduce a new computing approach on brain and body. The topological models on brain functions control body and behavior. We notice that soft computing model should be an important model to analyze human behavior through brain and body. We call thus a research area "Body Area Soft Computing."

This session treats various models to identify the Body Area Soft Computing, e.g., brain science, brain psychology, cognitive psychology, vision, learning system, reinforcement learning, motion behavior, motion analysis, and brain computer interface, relating soft computing as like fuzzy models and neural networks. These issues are germane to a wide modeling of biologically inspired models, not just to engineered learning systems and body analysis.
