As mentioned in the editorial for the special issue on selected papers from SCIS & ISIS 2006 (No.1) by Dr. Naoyuki Kubota, the 3rd International Conference on Soft Computing and Intelligent Systems (SCIS) and the 7th International Symposium on Advanced Intelligent Systems (ISIS) have been highly successful with 464 original papers accepted for presentation and participants numbering 526. We have selected approximately 50 quality papers to be published in extended form in the Special Issue of the Journal of Advanced Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Informatics, following publication of the first volume (Vol.11, No.6) comprising 23 papers. This second volume of the SCIS & ISIS 2006 special issue includes 19 papers covering the cutting edge of computational intelligence, and the guest editors believe that readers will be inspired by the highly interesting contents containing clues to the new frontier of the computational intelligence. linebreak Related areas include image processing, control, sensor fusion, data/context/
network analysis, genetic algorithms, ontology, VHDL, game theory, and robotics among others.smallskip I would like to thank all the authors and reviewers for their valuable contributions in making this volume possible. I am also grateful to Editors-in-Chief Prof. Toshio Fukuda of Nagoya University and Prof. Kaoru Hirota of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Dr. Toshiaki Murofushi who served as general chair of SICS & ISIS 2006, Dr. Naoyuki Kubota who was the SCIS & ISIS 2006 program chair, and the SCIS & ISIS 2006 conference staff for inviting me to serve as Guest Editor of this Journal.
