Zadeh Institute for Information Technology

I am delighted to announce the formation of "Zadeh Institute for Information
Technology (ZIFIT)". It is a nonprofit private corporation, organized by a
group of distinguished academic and corporate individuals in September 1998.
Professor Zadeh has agreed to be our executive adviser. It is situated in
Berkeley California, the home of the illustrious University of California,
and in close proximity of Silicon Valley-the world capital of high
technology. The mission of the Institute can be summarized as follows:
* To carry out research and development in Information Science & Technology
including Soft Computing.
* To collaborate with international researchers and organizations in R&D
projects.
* To help facilitate the transfer of academic IT research to commercial IT
products.
* To provide forums for discourse regarding critical issues of information
revolution, including the global impact of the Internet .
* To organize conferences and to conduct IT seminars and short courses.

Membership in ZIFIT
1. There are three classes of membership: a) corporate, and b) academic, and
c) individual members.
2. Corporations, academic, and research institutions may join as full
members of ZIFIT.
3. Qualified individuals who are affiliated with corporate or academic
member institutions and are engaged in Information Technology can become
members.
4. Collectively the corporate members can elect an individual to represent
them on the Board of Directors. Corporate members pay an annual membership
fee. Each corporate member, in consultation with ZIFIT, may annually select
a researcher to spend up to one year at ZIFIT. The researcher is free to
pursue his/her own research work and/or participate in research projects in
progress at ZIFIT.
5. Academic members have the same rights and privileges as corporate
members.
6. The current annual fee for corporate membership is $24, 000, and for
academic membership is $20,000. There is no fee for individual membership.
7. A membership committee, consisting of three board members, selects the
visiting members if the number of requests exceeds ZIFIT's capacity to
accommodate visitors.
8. Individual members will be provided with computing equipment, office
space, and assistance to obtain visa and living accommodations.

Please direct all inquiries and applications for membership to:
