Paper Submissions Website:
Selected papers of CACS2018 will be recommended to rewrite and then submit to special issues of three SCI-E indexed journals- Sensors, Asian Journal of Control (AJC) or International Journal of Fuzzy Systems (IJFS). Authors of CACS 2018 are encouraged to participate SS1, SS2 and SS14 for possible submission to these special issues.
The aim of this open issue is to present state-of-the-art results in the area of theory and applications of fuzzy control design at large, and to bring potential and well-known researchers in this area together. Fuzzy control has been a systematic and efficient approach to analyze and synthesize a wide class of various nonlinear systems. Moreover, the featured design of fuzzy control can be employed to deal with a wide range of nonlinear and complicated control problems. There have been a number of innovative results on this area in the literature. However, there is still room for improvement of the existing results in order to propose new techniques for fuzzy control. This open issue welcomes any high quality submission from researchers working in the area of advanced fuzzy control design and its applications.

Taiwan has become an aged society in the year of 2018 where seniors constitute 14% of total population. Elderly people are more susceptible to limb joint related diseases. Regular maintenance is a must for limb joints to function properly. In the worst-case scenario, total knee arthroplasty (TKA) reconstruction is indicated to regain mobility. This proposal approaches from control engineering perspective to devising some simple yet useful sensor devices and examination modules to help patients track the progress of rehabilitation. Orthopedists can also obtain valuable information from the infrastructure of AI and Internet of Things (AIoT) to assess the effectiveness of rehabilitation.
