This edition of International Conference on Computers, Communications and
Control, ICCCC 2008 [1], together with the satellite-event ExploratoryWorkshop on Natural
Language Computation, EWNLC 2008 [2]: „From Natural Language to Soft Computing: New Paradigms in Artificial Intelligence”, celebrates the Centenary of John Bardeen (1908-
1991) [3-24], the co-inventor of the transistor, a very important element in the development
of the computers and the communications.
ICCCC 2008 and EWNLC 2008 are honored to have a special guest as keynote speaker in
the person of a famous scientist, Dr. Lotfi A. Zadeh [25-32], professor at Berkeley University
of California. His Fuzzy Set Theory (1965), Fuzzy Logic Theory (1973) and the next contributions
on Soft Computing (1990), Human-Machine Perception (2000) and Natural Language
Computation are of a capital importance in the actual mathematics, computer science
and technological applications (from the home intelligent e-devices to guiding-computers for
