Dear Biscers:

Drs. Les M. Sztandera and Paul P. Wang would like to initiate a special
interest group entitled ``Applications of Soft-Computing to Textile Science
Research'' under the umbrella of the BISC organization. We are soliciting
the electronic name-cards of all researchers who may be interested in joining
the group. All interested researchers are invited to send their personal
data to:

Mr. Xi-Liang Gu
Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering
Duke University
Box 90291
Durham, NC 27708-0291
U.S.A.
email: gu@ee.duke.edu

Thus far we have about thirty researchers who have expressed an interest
in joining this special group.

Our envisioned goals will be accomplished in two stages.

STAGE I: It is our intention to organize six technical sessions at the
JCIS'98 conference. Since Dr. Les Sztandera is the program chair of the
Sixth International Conference on Fuzzy Theory and Technology, please send
the summary of your papers to:

Dr. Les M. Sztandera
Computer Science
Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science
Philadelphia, PA 19144

STAGE II: In forming the consortium the special interest group will serve as
a bridge between industry and research institutes. Participating textile
industrial corporations will contribute both technical problem statements as
well as financial support. It is the consortium's responsibility to
coordinate all the proposals and matching research opportunities.

Very truly yours,
Paul P. Wang
Director
Machine Intelligence and Fuzzy Logic Laboratory
