MENDEL Soft Computing Journal is an Open Access international journal
dedicated to rapid publication of high-quality, peer-reviewed research
articles in fields covered by Evolutionary Computation, Genetic
Programming, Swarm Intelligence, Neural Networks, Deep Learning, Fuzzy
Logic, Big Data, Chaos, Bayesian Methods, Optimization, Intelligent
Image Processing, and Bio-inspired Robotics.

The journal is fully open access, meaning that all articles are
available on the internet to all users immediately upon publication
(Gold Open Access).  The journal has paper and electronic versions, and
the issues are Semi-Annual, in June and December.  As well, under the
decision of the Editorial Board special issues may be published.

The journal is published under the auspices of the Institute of Automation and
Computer Science of the Brno University of Technology.
