Series: Emerging Trends in Computer Science and Applied Computing

Emerging Trends in Computer Science & Applied Computing is dedicated to facilitating increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across Computer Science and Applied Computing. Increasingly, computer science is the driving force for advances and breakthroughs in other fields. For example, experts in biology, political science, business, and national security, believe that their fields are no longer hypothesis driven – instead they are now data-driven disciplines. Virtually, all sub-fields of applied computing involve the use of computer science methods as building blocks to solve problems in different application domains. These  sub-fields include: Monte Carlo methods and applications; Numerical methods and simulation; Quantum computing; Optimization and approximation methods; Probabilistic and randomized methodologies; Inversion problems; Ordinary, partial and stochastic differential equations; Finite element methods; Multi-level and Multi-grid methods; Operational research; Dynamical systems; Artificial Intelligence (AI); Social networks; Data and information mining; Semantic web and web services; Natural language processing; Biomedical science; Pattern recognition; Robotics; DNA computing; Machine learning; Telecommunications; Transportation systems; Game technologies; Engineering problems, as well as computational disciplines in geometry, biology and bioinformatics, chemistry, fluid dynamics, physics, mechanics, electromagnetics and electrodynamics, and numerous other emerging applications.
