This special issue of journal covers a broad field ranging from intelligent systems to robotics. These papers were selected among the papers that were presented at the Joint 4th International Symposium on Advanced Intelligent Systems and 2nd International Conference on Soft Computing and Intelligent Systems which was held in Jeju, Korea on September 25-28, 2003. In the above symposium, there was a wide spectrum of intelligent systems and related topics, including sessions: intelligent systems, intelligent control, fuzzy sets, fuzzy systems, neural networks, robotics, genetic algorithms, image processing, soft computing, artificial life, etc. Many interesting results were presented at the symposium. Among these various papers, this special issue offers a selection of sixteen papers that contribute to advances of intelligent systems in various aspects. The topics that the selected papers deal with are fuzzy controller for the mobile robot control, neural networks and their application to image processing, intelligent control for a robot, intelligent system for probe detection, fuzzy image processing, genetic algorithms, fuzzy clustering for incomplete categorical data, predictive fuzzy controller for an electric four-wheeled vehicle. As guest editors of this special issue, we would like to express our thanks to authors for their contribution, the anonymous referees for their review, and Prof. Kaoru Hirota for his giving the opportunity to publish this special issue.
