CALL FOR PAPERS: Deadline for extended abstract submission: December 20

DECSAI (DEpartment of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence,
University of Granada) and EUROFUSE invite you to participate in the
EUROFUSE Workshop on Preference Modelling and Applications. This meeting
will be held at the University of Granada, April 25 - 27, 2001.


The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners working in Europe and abroad developing and applying fuzzy
techniques in preference modelling and decision making. The workshop is
intended to establish the state of the art in the field and to encourage
cooperation among the participants.
    The workshop will be rather informal, with an open and friendly spirit
and a flexible schedule. The program schedule will consist of 3 working
days and a half day excursion to the famous Alhambra. Each half day will
start with an invited lecture followed by a number of regular contributions.
Ample time for discussions will be provided and no parallel sessions will
be scheduled. The number of participants envisaged is between 30 and 40.


A limited number of participants from Central and Eastern Europe or
Ph.D. students from all over Europe can apply for EURO support covering
(partial) travel and accomodation. Interested persons should contact one
of the EUROFUSE coordinators (B. De Baets and J. Fodor).
