An International School on the advances in applications of fuzzy logic
control will be held on April 20-24, 1999, at the Delft University of
Technology, Faculty of Information Technology and Systems, in Delft, the
Netherlands. This is the second of two coordinated events, devoted to
the dissemination of state of the art knowledge in methodology and
applications of fuzzy logic. The first event was held in Ferrara, Italy
on June 16-20, 1998 and was devoted to the advances in the theory and
methodology of fuzzy logic control. This successful event was attended
by 50 doctorate students and researchers (the maximum possible number of
participants). The Summer School is sponsored by the TMR programme of
the European Commission and organized by the Department of Electronics,
Computers and Systems, University of Bologna, in collaboration with the
Department of Engineering, University of Ferrara and the Faculty of
Information Technology and Systems, Delft University of Technology.

The aim of the school is twofold:
* provide doctorate students and professionals with the basic as well as
advanced material on fuzzy control and to stimulate discussion of
problems and future research directions;

* bring together young researchers both from academia and industry that
work in systems and control engineering and give them the opportunity
to exchange experience and knowledge.

The number of participants is limited to 50, and registration before
January 31, 1999 is mandatory. The participants' registration will be
considered in the order of reception. A limited number of grants are
available upon request for young researchers (born after May 1, 1964),
with the European Community or associated Countries citizenship to
partially cover their travel, lodging and fee costs. Contact the
organizers for the eligibility conditions and application forms.

Venue

The event will be held at the Faculty of Information Technology and
Systems, Delft University of Technology, Delft, the Netherlands. Delft
is a historical city, situated in the neighborhood of The Hague
(governmental seat) and Rotterdam (among the largest harbors of the
world). The 17th century center of the city if well preserved, with
beautiful churches, buildings and musea.
