Fuzzy-Neuro Systems '98 is the fifth event of a well established
series of workshops with international participation. Its aim is to
give an overview of the state of art in research and development of
fuzzy systems and artificial neural networks. Another aim is to
highlight applications of these methods and to forge innovative links
between theory and application by means of creative discussions.

Fuzzy-Neuro Systems '98 is being organized by the Technical Committee
1.2 "Inference Systems" (Fachausschuss 1.2 "Inferenzsysteme") of the
German Informatics Society GI (Gesellschaft fuer Informatik e. V.) and
Institut fuer Informatik, Technische Universitaet Muenchen in
cooperation with Siemens AG and with the support of Kratzer
Automatisierung GmbH. The workshop takes place at the Technische
Universitaet Muenchen in Munich from March, 19 to 20, 1998.
