International Journal of Computer Applications in Engineering Sciences (IJCAES) is an open access, international, peer-reviewed, scholarly journal, dedicated to serve the society by quality research work. The journal aims at promoting interdisciplinary research in engineering, technology and management. It mainly focuses on the application of computer science in these disciplines. The journal publishes original research as well as review works with practical significance and academic value. IJCAES prefers papers with practical background, clear description, effective physical and mathematical model, clear framework of algorithm and successful practical applications.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science which deals with the research, design and development of intelligent machines. It involves in the study and design of intelligent agent which is a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success. Researchers around the world are trying to develop such systems which can mimic human thought, understand speech and countless other feats never before possible which will help the society a lot.

Soft computing is a subfield computer science which is characterized by the use of approximate solutions to computationally-difficult tasks. It is tolerant of imprecision, uncertainty, partial truth, and approximation. In effect, the role model for soft computing is the human mind.

In this regard, we are planning to publish a special issue on Artificial Intelligence & Soft Computing. We hope it will help the Academicians, Researchers and Interested People to keep track of recent developments in these emerging fields. This special issue will be published in the Month of November 2011.
