IEEE WCCI 2018 Special Session FUZZ-IEEE-04 on "Fuzzy Logic Systems for Security and Forensics"

Jul 8-13, 2018, Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL

Summary of the Special Session

Computational Intelligence has taken the centre of the research in cyber security and digital forensics. As one of the three most important parts in Computational Intelligence, fuzzy logic has been successfully applied in many applications in this field. Thanks to its ability to provide human comprehensible solutions to cyber security and digital forensics problems under uncertainty environment and also to the fuzziness of security and forensics problems themselves, fuzzy logic is expected to have a more significant impact in such field.

Scope and Aim

The aim of this special session is to provide a forum: (1) to disseminate and discuss the advances and significant research efforts in the field of fuzzy logic systems, security and forensics, (2) to promote both theoretical development and practical applications of fuzzy logic systems in the field of security, privacy and forensics, (3) to foster the integration of communities from academic, industry, and other organisations who have been working in the field of fuzzy logic, security and forensics.


Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work to this forum. The topics include but are not limited to:

        Fuzzy systems for cyber security, privacy and digital forensics

        Uncertainty representation and processing in the cyber space for security, privacy, and forensics

        Fuzzy algorithms and models for cyber-attack detection, privacy preservation, and forensics investigation

        Fuzzy approaches for the security of big data, cloud, computer networks, IoT, cyber-physical systems and other hardware and software systems in or involved in the cyber space

        Fuzzy hardware architectures for cyber security, privacy and digital forensics

        Fuzzy software systems for cyber security, privacy and digital forensics

        Application of fuzzy logic systems to cyber security, privacy and forensics
