    EUSFLAT 2001

    Special Session on

    Data Mining and Multimedia Systems

    5-7 September 2001, Leicester, UK

    In the recent years, fuzzy data mining introduced new methodologies to
    extract and discover fuzzy knowledge from either classical or fuzzy
    databases. It leads to the introduction of fuzziness in the process of
    knowledge discovery that enables it to offer more comprehensive
    discovered
    knowledge, and to enhance its capabilities to handle real world data.
    Multimedia systems are computer-delivered electronic systems that allow
    the
    user to control, combine, and/or manipulate different types of media,
    such
    as text, sound, video, computer graphics, and animation. Examples of
    such
    systems are integrated computers, memory storage systems, data
    warehouses,
    interactive telephones, interactive cable television services,
    high-speed
    interactive audiovisual communications systems, digitized wireless
    transmissions, virtual reality systems, and any other new information
    technologies.
    In the recent years, the growing of multimedia data storage has caused a

    corresponding growth in the need to analyze and exploit such data.

    Traditionally, it appears that such data has been used only for common
    queries as given by a user. However, the main interest lies in mining it
    to
    extract more meaningful and useful information. Thus, a new problematic
    arises since on the one hand multimedia data is much richer than simple
    text
    and on the other hand handling this amount of information is already a
    difficult task for a system.

    This special session aims to provide an opportunity to people using
    fuzzy
    sets theory, in (fuzzy) data mining, and/or in the multimedia field to
    present their work and exchange their views, and to people working in
    other
    fields to discover these domains.
    Authors are therefore invited to submit papers describing their work in
    these fields.

    ** SUBMISSION GUIDELINES **
    Authors are requested to send an extended abstract with minimum 2 and
    maximum 4 pages by April 1, 2001.
    Extended abstracts should be prepared on A4 two column format, in Times
    or
    similar style, 10 points. Extended abstracts must be single sided and
    they
    should include title, author's name(s), affiliation(s) and keywords on
    top
    of the first page. E-mail submissions are encouraged. Please indicate
    the
    corresponding authors with their e-mail addresses.

    If accepted, the authors have to prepare the final camera-ready
    manuscript
    in time for inclusion in the proceedings and personally present the
    paper at
    the conference.

    If you are interested in submitting a paper to this special session,
    please
    contact the session organizers at

    ** ABOUT EUSFLAT'2001 CONFERENCE **
    The European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology (EUSFLAT) announces
    its
    second conference that will take place at De Montfort University,
    Leicester,
    England, during September 5-7, 2001.
    The topics areas may include, but are not limited to:
    * Manufacturing * Robotics * Financial Services
    * Engineering * Architecture * Information Systems
    * Design * Data Analysis * Signal Processing
    * Databases * Medicine * Pharmaceutical
    * Decision Systems * Fuzzy Control
    An important event will also be the Assembly of EUSFLAT with the
    election of
    the board and the discussion of the future of the society, its goals and

    future activities.
