Dear colleagues,

new online paper Fuzzy Multi-Dimensional Analysis can be found at my home
page

http://www.geocities.com/ResearchTriangle/7220/
(section Online Papers)

If you are interested in this approach you can try to use the COBASE
program 1997-1998 (U.S. citizens only) to obtain short- or long-term
research grant and to do something interesting together. I have several
interesting ideas which we could implement in the framework of this
program,
e.g., non-monotonic fuzzy inference, hierarchical attribute model,
diagnostic logical kernel as a reusable component (ActiveX).

You can also download a fuzzy calculator for Windows 3.x from this page
(a toy for fuzzy kids:-). It simulates behavior of an ordinary calculator
but uses numbers from the interval [0,1] and a T-norm as operations.

COBASE
PROGRAM
1997-1998

National Research Council
Office for Central Europe and Eurasia

Announces Travel/Host Grants for American Scientists:
Project Development & Long-Term Visits
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Office for Central Europe and Eurasia of the National Research
Council,
the operating arm of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of
Engineering, and Institute of Medicine, offers grants to individual
American
specialists who plan to establish *new* research partnerships with their
colleagues from Central/Eastern Europe (CEE) and the Newly Independent
States
(NIS). This program is designed primarily to prepare these new
partnerships
for competition in National Science Foundation (NSF) programs.

ELIGIBILITY AND SELECTION

Applications from American specialists possess or will possess Ph.D.
degrees
or equivalent research experience at least six months prior to the
requested
beginning dates of their programs will be considered.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible.

Foreign specialists must possess CEE or NIS citizenship and must hold
Ph.D.
(kandidat) degrees or equivalent research training and experience at least
six months prior to the requested beginning dates of their programs.

U.S. Government employees generally are not supported under the program.

As the program is designed to support new collaborative efforts, no more
than two grants will be awarded per applicant in a four-year period.

Specialists who have received their doctoral degrees within the past six
years will receive special consideration, as will applicants wishing to
work
with colleagues in less frequently represented countries and regions.

Scientists and engineers who hold a current NSF grant and are eligible for
an NSF international supplement should not apply to this program. NSF's
Eastern Europe Program staff (703-306-1703) can advise regarding
applications for NSF international supplements.

COLLABORATION IN BASIC SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING (COBASE)

Funding Source: U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF)

Participating Countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan (traveling only), Belarus,
Bosnia (hosting in U.S. only), Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia,
Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia,
Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan,
Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan.

Short-Term Project Development Grants: support American specialists who
wish to host or visit their CEE or NIS colleagues for two-week periods
in order to prepare collaborative research proposals for submission to
to NSF.

Long-Term Grants: support American specialists who wish to host or visit
their CEE or NIS colleagues for collaboration with research for a period
of one to six months. Significant publications jointly authored by program
participants as a result of their long-term visits are expected.

Accepted Fields: Only fields funded by NSF are eligible, including
archaeology and anthropology; astronomy; biochemistry, biophysics and
genetics; biological sciences; chemistry; computer science; earth
sciences;
economics; engineering; environmental sciences; geography; history and
philosophy of science; linguistics; mathematics; physics; political
science;
non-clinically oriented psychology; science and technology policy; and
sociology. No proposals involving agricultural production; drug testing or
development; research on the diagnosis, etiology or treatment of physical
or
mental diseases or disorders; or the use of animal models of human
diseases
or conditions will be accepted.

Grant Levels: $2,200-$2,500 Short-Term Project Development
$3,000-$15,000 Long-Term

Postmarking Deadlines:
December 29, 1997 (Project Development only)
April 6, 1998 (Project Development only)
July 10, 1998 (Long-Term only)
August 17, 1998 (Project Development only)

The National Research Council, an independent advisor to the Federal
Government on scientific and technical questions of national importance,
jointly administered by the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy
of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine, brings the resources of the
entire scientific and technical community to bear on national problems
through its volunteer advisory committees.
