For regular sessions, please submit 3 copies of an extended summary not
exceeding 4 pages of 10-point font, double-column, single-spaced text (1
page minimum) with figures and tables included. For contributory sessions,
submit your proposed topic and the number of anticipated participants you
wish to invite (about 3-5 per session). All accepted summaries will appear
in the Proceedings. Long papers may be submitted at the conference for
possible publication in Information Sciences, an international journal
published by Elsevier and/or special-edition books. Send
submissions/proposals/inquiries to

Dr. Daniel G. Schwartz
Department of Computer Science
Florida State University
Tallahassee, FL 32306-4530

Deadline for both summaries and session proposals is September 1, 1999.
Paper acceptance notifications will be sent by November 1, 1999. Revised
summaries should submitted, ready for publication, by January 1, 2000.

A fee of $180 must be submitted on or before December 1, 1999 to guarantee
publication of your 4-page summary in the Proceedings. The publication fee
is deductible from either the full or preconference discounted registration
fee. There are additional fees for publishing more than one paper or papers
longer than 4 pages (10 point, double-column, single-spaced text). Please
visit the JCIS web site for additional information on these charges.
Summaries accepted for publication in Information Sciences must be in LaTeX
FT&T 2000 Conference Topics

The 7th International Conference on Fuzzy Theory & Technology will consist
