From: L.A. Zadeh

Following what has become a tradition, I should like to extend to
all members of the BISC Group, near and far, my personal greetings and
best wishes for the holidays and the New Year.

This year has a special significance because we are on the threshold
of entering a new millennium. The world's still wracked with conflicts
but the economic picture is brighter than in was a year ago. Let us hope
that this will continue to be the case.

During the past year, we had the pleasure of hosting a number of
BISC visiting scholars and postdocs for varying periods of time. For
your information, their names follow:
- Christian Freksa
- Philippe de Wilde
- Jose-Manuel Benitez
- Oscar Cordon
- Shin-Mu Tseng
- Rainer Holve
- Michael Berthold
- Frank Hoffmann
- Mori Anvari
- Hector Pomares
- Ignacio Rojas
- Joseba Urzelai
- Shyi-Ming Chen
- Seppo J. Ovaska
- I-Jen Chiang
- Larry Hall
- Been-Chian Chie

Larry Hall has left recently, and Jose M. Benitez Sanchez, Rainer
Holve and Frank Hoffmann are leaving today (12-20-1999). We will miss
them all but Frank's departure will be especially keenly felt because he
has been playing such an important role as the BISC Administrator and a
leader in the autonomous helicopter project. He is taking a position in
Stockholm but perhaps memories of sunny California will bring him back
here.

So far as my work is concerned, I am very absorbed in developing the
computational theory of perceptions (CTP)--a theory which is based on
computing with words. I believe that eventually CTP will become an
integral part of scientific theories, especially in the realms of
information processing, decision and control.

Again, my best wishes to all.
As always,

Lotfi

P.S.: When you send messages to the BISC Group, please include
information about your coordinates.
