Acta Informatica Malaysia (AIM) is an international journal of high repute covering topics of interest to all those researching and working in the sciences of information and knowledge management. The Editors welcome material on any aspect of information science theory, policy, application or practice that will advance thinking in the field. Information Science is a broad based discipline which has a potential impact in almost every sphere of human activity in the emerging information age. There have been significant advances in information technology and information processing techniques over recent years and the pace of innovation shows no sign of slowing. However, the application of these technologies is often sub-optimal because theoretical understanding lags behind. The Journal seeks to achieve a better understanding of the principles that underpin the effective creation, organization, storage, communication and utilization of information and knowledge resources. It seeks to understand how policy and practice in the area can be built on sound theoretical or heuristic foundations to achieve a greater impact on the world economy. Articles focusing on applied information science topics should seek to highlight the underlying theoretical principles and show how their application has been novel or lead to unusual or exemplary results
Aims & Scope
Acta Informatica Malaysia (AIM) is a peer-reviewed international journal of high repute covering topics of interest to all those researching and working in the sciences of information and knowledge management. The journal is designed to serve researchers, developers, managers, strategic planners, graduate students and others interested in state-of-the art research activities in information, knowledge engineering and intelligent systems. Readers are assumed to have a common interest in information science, but with diverse backgrounds in fields such as engineering, mathematics, statistics, physics, computer science, cell biology, molecular biology, management science, cognitive science, neurobiology, behavioural sciences and biochemistry. The journal publishes high-quality, refereed articles. It emphasizes a balanced coverage of both theory and practice. It fully acknowledges and vividly promotes a breadth of the discipline of Informations Sciences.
Material on all aspects of information science will be considered for publication including: information processing and management, information flow and communication, knowledge structuring and organization, information literacy and information education, information seeking behaviours, economic impact of information and knowledge, information and knowledge policy formulation, legal and political issues relating to information, meta data and structured vocabularies, search, navigation and retrieval techniques, information architecture, information and knowledge audit, content management, intelligent systems, genetic algorithms and modelling, fuzzy logic and approximate reasoning, artificial neural networks expert and decision support systems, learning and evolutionary computing, expert and decision support systems, learning and evolutionary computing, biometrics, moleculoid nanocomputing, self-adaptation and self-organisational systems, data engineering, data fusion, information and knowledge, adaptive ad supervisory control, discrete event systems, symbolic / numeric and statistical techniques, perceptions and pattern recognition, design of algorithms, software design, computer systems and architecture evaluations and tools, human-computer interface, computer communication networks and modelling and computing with words manufacturing, automation and mobile Robots, virtual Reality, image processing and computer vision systems, photonics networks, genomics and bioinformatics, brain mapping, language and search engine design, user-friendly man machine interface, data compression and text abstraction and summarization, finance and economics modelling and optimisation and many more.
