    1. Dec 2000: BISC-FLINT
    ----------------------------

    Dear BISC Members,

    Dec 2000:

    "To promote the use of fuzzy Logic in the Internet, a Special Interest
    Group on Fuzzy Logic in the Internet has been formed.
    Please contact Dr. Nikravesh (nikravesh@cs.berkeley.edu; URL:
    http://www-bis.cs.berkeley.edu) if you are interested in joining this
    SIG or posting your views and comments to the BISC Group."
                                     
    Warm regards to all,
    Lotfi Zadeh

    =====================================================

    2. Dec 2000; FLINT and Objective
    ----------------------------------

    The main goals of the Interest group are:

    1. Carry out R & D in Soft computing and Internet

    2. Provide forum for debate and discussion on Soft computing and
    Internet

    3. Organize and contribute to conferences and short courses on Soft
    computing and Internet

    4. Provide repository and archive for Soft computing and Internet
    related R & D

    5. Attract Soft computing and Internet researchers worldwide to
    collaborate with the interest group

    6. Help technology transfer and commercialization of Soft computing and
    Internet applications

    7. Create a think-tank to analyze impact of Internet on society

    3. August 2001; FLINT workshop
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    During the August 2001, BISC program hosted a workshop toward better
    understanding of the issues related to the Internet (Fuzzy Logic and the
    Internet-FLINT2001, Toward the Enhancing the Power of the Internet). The
    main purpose of the Workshop was to draw the attention of the fuzzy
    logic community as well as the Internet community to the fundamental
    importance of specific Internet-related problems. This issue is
    critically significant about problems that center on search and
    deduction in large, unstructured knowledge bases. The Workshop provided
    a unique opportunity for the academic and corporate communities to
    address new challenges, share solutions, and discuss research directions
    for the future. Following are the areas that were recognized as
    challenging problems and the new direction toward the next generation of
    the search engines and Internet.

    =======================================================

    4. Jan 2002; FLINT and future Direction
    ------------------------------------------

    We summarize the challenges and the road ahead into four categories as
    follows:

    i. Search Engine and Queries:

    Deductive Capabilities
    Customization and Specialization
    Metadata and Profiling
    Semantic Web
    Imprecise-Querying
    Automatic Parallelism via Database Technology
    Approximate Reasoning
    Ontology
    Ambiguity Resolution through Clarification Dialog;
    Definition/Meaning & Specificity
    User Friendly
    Multimedia
    Databases
    Interaction

    ii. Internet and the Academia:

    Ambiguity and Conceptual and Ontology
    Aggregation and Imprecision Query
    Meaning and structure Understanding
    Dynamic Knowledge
    Perception, Emotion, and Intelligent Behavior
    Content-Based
    Escape from Vector SpaceDeductive Capabilities
    Imprecise-Querying
    Ambiguity Resolution through Clarification Dialog
    Precisiated Natural Languages (PNL)

    iii. Internet and the Industry:

    XML=>Semantic Web
    Workflow
    Mobile E-Commerce
    CRM
    Resource Allocation
    Intent
    Ambiguity Resolution
    Interaction
    Reliability
    Monitoring
    Personalization and Navigation
    Decision Support
    Document Soul
    Approximate Reasoning
    Imprecise Query
    Contextual Categorization

    iv. Fuzzy Logic and Internet; Fundamental Research:

    Computing with Words (CW)
    Computational Theory of Perception (CTP)
    Precisiated Natural Languages (PNL)

    ===================================================

    5. NAFIPS-FLINT 2002
    ---------------------
    The Special Interest Group on Fuzzy Logic and the Internet (FLINT) will
    hold its annual workshop as part of NAFIPS 2002. The FLINT workshop and
    NAFIPS 2002 were combined to allow people to conveniently attend both
    (and save money). The registration for NAFIPS 2002 covers all sessions
    and events.

    As you all know, NAFIPS 2002 will take place in New Orleans on July
    27-July 29 on the Campus of Tulane University. There is now more reason
    than ever to consider joining NAFIPS- FLINT 2002 in New Orleans.
