Fuzzy Systems are playing significant roles in pattern recognition systems.  These systems go beyond
laboratory experiments performed on computers with small data sets; they involve large scale developments on
very large data sets from real systems.  The research and development activities that are undertaken to produce
such recognition systems often involve interaction between universities, industries, and government agencies.

Lotfi Zadeh has stated that =93In coming years, recognition technology is likely to play a pivotal role in the
conception, design, construction and utilization of information/intelligent systems=94 [1]. Systems that have
incorporated fuzzy sets include speech recognition systems, handwriting recognition systems, computer virus
detection, eye-print identification, supermarket checkout scanners, molecular breath-analyzers , password
authentication, email filtering, seizure prediction, unexploded ordnance and landmine detection, and others [1].

The purpose of the special issue is to create an archive of descriptions of fuzzy methods in recognition systems. 
Papers are sought in this area.  The systems described in the paper must involve significant applications of
fuzzy sets to real recognition system problems and should demonstrate results on real data.  Potential authors
should attempt to not only describe methodologies and systems but to provide a discussion of the lessons
learned in the development of a recognition system and the implications for further research in fuzzy sets.

All papers will be peer-reviewed using the usual reviewing standards of the journal.  All papers must include
detailed descriptions of methods and data.
