SS04 – Special Session on Optimization, Modeling and Control by Soft Computing Techniques (OMCS)


Nowadays, regardless any context, due to different reasons as climate change, aging population, and new engineering and industrial requirements, it is necessary to achieve some key challenges such as: minimize energy consumption  and emissions to the atmosphere, improve the quality of life of humans, or reach industrial enhancement requests. People involved with industry and academic cannot be oblivious to these facts, because that will determine the future. In this sense, the industry and some other fields like buildings management, assistive technologies, or real engineering applications play an important role into the  different  emerging  techniques  developed  with  the  aim  to  achieve  the previously cited objectives. Obviously, traditional techniques have  met to  the demands so far, but for future, new advanced improvements are needed. This session provides an interesting opportunity to present and discuss the latest theoretical advances and real-world applications in Optimization, Modeling and Control Systems by means of Soft Computing models.
