CALL FOR PAPERS:

The Sixth IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems will be devoted to
the discussion of advances in both theoretical and applied aspects of fuzzy
systems and related subjects. The non-exhaustive list of topics of interest
is:
* Foundational aspects of Fuzzy Logic
* Basic Concepts and Tools
* Fuzzy Logic versus other Approximate Reasoning Models
* Fuzzy hardware and Software
* Real world Applications of Fuzzy Logic
* Fuzzy Logic and Soft Computing
* Applications of Fuzzy Logic to:
- System Control
- Intelligent Information Systems
- Decision Support Systems
- Pattern Recognition
- Signal Processing
- Image Understanding
- Robotics and Automation
- Learning and Knowledge Acquisition
- Human Interface
- Data Mining
Authors are invited to submit original papers about any aspects of research
and applications related to Fuzzy Logic and Fuzzy Systems. Papers will be
carefully reviewed. Accepted papers will appear in the FUZZ-IEEE'97
proceedings.
Authors are requested to send 4 copies of full papers, written in English
and not exceeding 8 pages, in A4 or 8'5" x 11" page format, with at least
2'5 cm. margins on all four sides. The font used must be Times or similar,
and the font size 10 pt. or larger. Papers must be written on one side of
the sheets and they should include authors name(s) and affiliation(s), an
abstract (max. 200 words) and a list of at the most 5 keywords. Fax or
e-mail submissions are not accepted. Papers must be sent to the Secretariat
address.
