Soft Computing as Transdisciplinary Science and Technology is the fourth workshop on Applied Soft Computing to be held in Muroran, Japan with Professor L. A. Zadeh as Plenary Speaker.

Soft Computing (SC) has an evolving collection of methodologies, which is aimed to exploit tolerance for imprecision uncertainty, and partial truth to achieve robustness, tractability, and low cost. SC provided attractive opportunity to represent the ambiguity in human thinking with real life uncertainty. Fuzzy logic (FL), Neural Networks (NN), and Evolutionary Computation (EC) were the core methodologies of soft computing. Later chaos computing, fractal theory, wavelet transformation, cellular automaton, percolation models, and immune network theory were added to enhance soft computing. However, they should not be viewed as competing with each other, but synergistic and complementary, instead. SC was actually the combination or fusion of each methodology which yielded new computational capabilities (hybrid systems). Soft computing will cause a paradigm shift (breakthrough) in science and technology.

This workshop brings together international soft computing/computational intelligence researchers, developers, practitioners, and users. The aim of WSTST is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange research ideas in this field. WSTST invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that demonstrate current research in all areas of soft computing including intelligent hybrid systems, agent-based systems, intelligent data mining, decision support systems, cognitive and reactive distributed artificial intelligence (AI), internet modeling, human interface, and applications not only in science and technology but also
in economic and social systems.
