About the Conference

The 6th International Conference on Frontiers of Intelligent Computing: Theory and applications (FICTA ) aims to bring together researchers, scientists, engineers, and practitioners to exchange and share their theories, methodologies, new ideas, experiences, applications in all areas of intelligent computing theories and applications to various engineering disciplines like Computer Science, Electronics, Electrical , Mechanical Engineering etc.
This is the 6th edition of the series. Prior to this other five editions were organized by BEC, Bhubaneswar, NIT Durgapur, and KIIT University, Bhubaneswar respectively. The idea of this series was conceived by few eminent professors and researchers of primer institutions of India. The first Edition of this, FICTA 2012, was organized by Bhubaneswar Engg. College (BEC), Bhubaneswar and after successful completion of this next one FICTA 2013 was also hosted by BEC. Due to its popularity and wide visibilities in entire country and abroad, FICTA 2015 moved to prestigious NIT, Durgapur to make a mark in India. Last year FICTA 2016 conducted at KIIT University, Bhubaneswar. This year also, FICTA 2017, is planned to be organized by a world class University, KIIT, Bhubaneswar, the temple city of Odisha.

About KIIT

KIIT started as a modest vocational education institute in 1992 in rented premises in Bhubaneswar. By 1997 (considered as the base year) it commenced graduate programmes in Engineering and postgraduate programmes in Computer Applications and Management. The excellent academic ambience, quality faculty, adherence to strict academic rigor and plethora of other academic activities led to grant of university status to the institute by Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India in the year 2004 just within six years (1997-2004) of its inception.
KIIT, now, is a multi-disciplinary University respected worldwide due to its rich educational culture of excellence. Research and innovation feed into the courses, encouraging the students to think critically and creatively. Its cosmopolitan campus is proud to have more than 25,000 students from all corners of India and around 22 countries, creating a mini metropolis in which a diverse multi-cultural community mingles and meets to study and relax together. Student community of the University is highly disciplined due to its student friendly policies. KIIT University sprawls over 25 sq. km. area with one million square metres of aesthetically constructed built up area.There are 28 constituent schools, contiguously located in impeccably landscaped and modern-technology-enabled campuses offering graduate, post-graduate, doctoral and post-doctoral programmes in a wide range of disciplines.
The institute's solemn academic ambience has led to grant of A-Category status to it by the Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India, placing it among the most elite universities of the country. It is accredited by NAAC of UGC in 'A Grade' Further, it has received Tier 1 (Washington Accord) accreditation by NBA of AICTE for engineering streams. Washington Accord accreditation enables global recognition of degrees of the University and increased mobility of its graduates to 17 countries, including USA, UK, Australia, Canada and Japan. KIIT University is among only six institutions in the country to have this accreditation. KIIT also has one industrial training institute, a polytechnic, and an international school having affiliations with IGCSE-England, International Baccalaureate Programme (IBP), and CBSE India - the only one of its kind in the whole of the Eastern India

Intelligent and Soft Sensor for Environment Monitoring

The primary purpose of the sensors is to deliver data for monitoring and control. However, approximately two decades ago researchers started to make use of the large amounts of data being measured and stored in the industry by building predictive models based on this data. Initially, these predictive models are called soft sensors are used in the process industry only but slowly its relevance and importance is being felt in every [other application domain involving sensors. This term “Soft Sensor” is a combination of the words software, because the models are computer programs, and sensors, because the models deliver information similar to their hardware counterparts. Soft sensing deals with studying the interaction of the different parameters that can be used for calculating/ estimating new parameter that can not be measured directly. Soft sensors create windows to a process where physical equivalents are unrealistic or even impossible. Sensor output can be a control signal, advisory information for operators, predictions of quality of the monitoring environment, information on process faults or outliers in data. Intelligent sensors on the other hand are being viewed as smart sensors which are able to take intelligent decisions based on the local information in stead of transmitting the data to base station every time and thus saving a lot of crucial energy. Intelligent sensors are able to correlate the data being observed and make necessary corrections before
presenting to user. Intelligent sensors can also correct the drift that normally happens due to change in environmental condition, aging and beyond operating frequency.

Research Objectives
1. Making the soft sensor development as simple, automated and cheap as possible. This includes providing the possibility to develop the soft sensors off-the- shelf with minimal amount of required process knowledge as well as demand for parameter and model selection;
2. Prolonging the lifetime of the soft sensors developed according to the concept by means of their self-adaptation and effective exploitation of the provided feedback data;
3. Offering high flexibility, i.e. the algorithm can be manually tuned for the specific modeling task if required;
4. Providing mechanisms for the incorporation of the potentially available process knowledge. Despite the fact that the primary goal of this work is to minimize the demand for process knowledge, very often a certain amount of this knowledge is available and therefore it should be possible to effectively apply the available knowledge. Applying such a concept should, on one hand, significantly simplify the soft sensor development process and, on the other hand, minimize the requirement for periodical checking and tuning of the models.
