Special Issue "Extensions to Type-1 Fuzzy Logic: Theory, Algorithms and Applications"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2017).
Recent developments in fuzzy logic have presented new theories, concepts and algorithms, extending the original ideas of the pioneering work of Prof. Zadeh. Traditional fuzzy logic, now called type-1 fuzzy logic, has been widely applied in many real world problems with relative success, ranging from control, pattern recognition, robotics, time series prediction and economics. However, complex problems usually involve high degrees of uncertainty that cannot be handled with the traditional type-1 fuzzy logic. In this case, extensions to type-1, like interval type-2 fuzzy logic, general type-2 fuzzy logic, intuitionistic fuzzy logic and other similar approaches have been recently proposed to tackle more complex real world problem. The present Special issue is dedicated to the new theories, concepts and algorithms that have been developed to consider situations and problems under high degrees of uncertainty. The topics include, but not limited to, new theories and algorithms in the following areas:
- Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Logic
- General Type-2 Fuzzy Logic
- Intuitionistic Fuzzy Logic
- Type-2 Fuzzy Systems
- Intuitionistic Fuzzy Systems
- Fuzzy Differential Equations
- Algorithms for designing optimal fuzzy systems
- Hybrid models including fuzzy with bio-inspired computing, or evolutionary and swarm intelligence
- Applications of the above models to problems in any area

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
