Description of the special session/workshop:
- Several threats are being reported and increasing continuously on information as well as computer network infrastructure all around the Globe. Protection of such vital information and network is considered as one of the important and challenging tasks and lot of attention is being paid to have adequate security solutions. Special Session on Soft Computing, Cryptography and Cyber Security (SCCCS) is planned under SoCTA 2019 to share and exchange knowledge about the developments on soft computing techniques and their uses in the field of cryptography for various security applications. The session offers an opportunity to explore and examine how soft computing is taking place to achieve solutions of various cryptographic problems.
Topics of Interest:

  • Soft Computing: Neural Nets, Fuzzy Set and Rough Set;
  • Nature Inspired Optimization Techniques: Genetic Algorithms, PSO etc.;
  • Cryptography and Cryptanalysis: Encryption Schemes, Cryptanalytic Attacks, Confidentiality, Authenticity, Integrity etc.;
  • Steganography: Information Hiding, Detection and Extraction; Network Security: Firewalls, Malware Protection, Intrusion Detection etc.;
  • Applications: Secure Data Computing, Communications and Storage; Speech, Image and Multimedia Security

    Description of the special session/workshop:
    - The amount of data emerging every day is not only massive, but growing at an exponential rate. Recently, there has been an increasing interest in using machine learning methods to analyse such massive data generated from various sources and with many different features. This special session provides a platform for scientists, researchers/academicians and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results belonging to Machine Learning application on Big Data. Authors are invited to submit their unpublished work related to research trends, tools, techniques, algorithm and applications of Big Data and Machine learning.
    Topics of Interest:

  • Unsupervised and semi-supervised methods for Big Data
  • Big Data in health care, Education, Marketing and E-commerce
  • Big media data on the web and social networks
  • Intelligent data mining
  • Classification and clustering on Big Data
  • Fraud and spam detection
  • Scientific Computing with Big Data & Sentiment analysis

    Description of the special session/workshop:
    - This special session mainly focusing the state-of-the-art Healthcare Technologies, Medical Imaging, Biomedical Signal Processing, Computational Intelligence and Bioinformatics are used to monitor specific diseases/disorders of patients. The objective is to initiate conversations among technologists,engineers, scientists, and clinicians to synergize their efforts in producing low-cost, high-performance, highly efficient, deployable secured IoT systems in different medical applications. However, the main challenge in smart healthcare is how to manage with respect to critical applications, where a number of connected devices generate a large amount of medical data. This large volume of data, often called big data, cannot readily be processed by traditional data processing algorithms and applications.
    Scientific and original research papers are invited in the following theme areas for oral presentations during the conference. We anticipate that the special session will open new entrance for further research and technology improvements in this important area.
