The Journal of Cybernetics and Systems is a peer-reviewed journal. This journal publishes high quality original research papers in all areas of cybernetics, systems, related areas such as information security, computational intelligence, communication and control. It focuses on such areas as vision, neural networks, genetic algorithms, fuzzy systems, and robotics. Specifically involved are aspects of these areas as they relate to the field: self-adjusting systems, learning, planning and uncertainty handling, case-based reasoning, cognitive systems, data mining, decision theory, discrete event dynamic systems, distributed decision making, evolutionary computation, flexible manipulators, flexible manufacturing systems, forecasting, function approximation, fuzzy control, fuzzy logic, fuzzy set theory, genetic algorithms, image processing, image recognition, image segmentation, information retrieval, intelligent search, knowledge acquisition, knowledge based systems, motion control, mathematical optimization, neural nets, neural controllers, pattern recognition, Petri nets, production control, real-time systems, robot programming, software development environments, system health management, simulated annealing, tele-robotics, intelligent transportation, unsupervised learning, virtual reality and their applications. The journal also welcomes survey papers that stimulate research in cybernetics and systems.
