FUZZ-IEEE 2001 Call for Workshop Proposals

The IEEE-FUZZ'2001 Organising Committee invites proposals for the
workshop program of the Tenth IEEE International Conference on
Fuzzy Systems.

Workshops will be held during 2-3m December 2001 in parallel with the
Conference. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet
and discuss issues with a selected focus - providing an informal
setting for active exchange among researchers, developers and users on
topics of current interest. To foster interaction and exchange of
ideas, the workshops will be kept small, with attendance limited to
active participants only. The format of workshops will be determined
by their organisers, who are encouraged to leave ample time for
general discussion. Workshops will typically be one full day in
length, although half-day and one-and-a-half-day proposals will also
be considered. Because the workshops will be focused on exploration of
special topics (e.g. E-commerce, Internet application systems,
image/video compression, and database applications), topics that are
already the subject of regular meetings are not appropriate.

                Submission Requirements

Proposals for workshops should be about two pages in length, and
should contain:

* A description of the workshop topic, identifying the specific
issues on which the workshop will focus.

* A brief discussion of why the topic is of particular interest at
this time.

* A brief description of the proposed workshop format, regarding the
mix of events such as paper presentations, invited talks, panels, and
general discussion.

* An indication as to whether the workshop should be considered for a
half-day, one or one-and-a-half-day meeting.

* The names and full contact information (e-mail and postal addresses,
fax and telephone numbers) of the organising committee - around 3
people knowledgeable in the field - and short descriptions of their
relevant expertise. (Proposers are encouraged to include organisers
who will bring differing perspectives to the workshop topic.)

* A list of potential attendees.

                Workshop Organisation

Workshop organisers will be responsible for:

* Producing a call for participation.

* Selecting participants.

* Coordinating the production of the workshop notes.

Workshop proposals should be submitted as soon as possible and must be
received no later than Friday, 17 November 2000. Plain text e-mail
submissions are preferred. Organisers will be notified of the
Committee's decision by Friday, 8 December 2001.

                Publication Arrangements

Accepted workshop papers will be published in a special section of
the Conference Proceedings. Excellent papers will be invited for
publication in special issues of an established journal and/or books
(particulars to be decided).
