Special Issue Information

Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with understanding the principles underlying interactions between humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies these principles and understanding to designs in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. As human behavior is always dynamic, making it challenging to predict and access, it is worth applying fuzzy theories and control systems with intelligent computational technologies to enhance the interaction performance between humans and the systems. The purpose of this special issue is to better understand how innovative fuzzy system/algorithm developments relate to and enhance human-machine interaction in real-world settings. Research topics are listed as follows:

  • Inspiring Computational Intelligence for Innovative Fuzzy Systems Developments
  • Innovative Fuzzy Systems/Algorithms for Human-Machine Interaction
  • Innovative Fuzzy Systems/Algorithms for Exoskeleton Robot Control
  • Innovative Fuzzy Systems/Algorithms for Brain-Computer Interfaces
  • Innovative Fuzzy Systems/Algorithms for Management and Assessment 
  • Innovative Fuzzy Systems/Algorithms for Decision Making
  • Innovative Fuzzy Systems/Algorithms for Clinical Applications
  • Innovative Fuzzy Systems/Algorithms for Human Cognition

but not limited to the above topics.

Furthermore, we sincerely welcome the high-quality conference papers published in the 12th International Conference on Advanced Computational Intelligence (ICACI 2020) or 2020 International Conference on Fuzzy Theory and Its Applications (iFuzzy 2020, must be through on-site review in iFuzzy 2020 in advance) which can be extended for the special issue submission. If the authors have further questions, please feel free to contact the guest editors.
