> Call for Papers
> Special Issue on Fuzzy Arithmetic
> We have, with pleasure, accepted an invitation by Prof Hans-Juergen
> Zimmermann to edit a Special Issue of Fuzzy Sets and Systems on
> Fuzzy Arithmetic. We hereby want to invite
> authors active in the field to submitt full-length papers to the
> Special Issue.
> Fuzzy Arithmetic has grown in importance during recent years as a
> tool of advance in fuzzy optimization and control theory.
> It appears, from a number of papers, that the use of
> t-norm-based extension principle (instead of traditional
> sup-min convolution) has had a decisive influence on
> the effectiveness of fuzzy decison making and neuro-fuzzy technologies.
> Papers on development of theoretical foundations and algorithms, the
> development and use of software, and experience with applications of
> fuzzy arithmetic are welcome.
> We are especially looking for papers which would (i) outline the state
> of the art of theoretical foundations, (ii) show in which sense
> t-norm-based fuzzy arithmetic has been beneficial for the development
> of the theory and methods of multiple criteria optimization,
> expert systems and neuro-fuzzy models.
> Please send us extended abstracts (around 500 words) of your intended
> contribution by September 30, 1996, as we would like to interact with
> you in order to get a reasonably well structured issue, which will
> both cover most key contributions and represent enough theoretical
> depth to give a good overview of the state of knowledge in the field.
> Full papers are due by December 31, 1996. Please note that manuscripts
> should be sent in triplicate and should be prepared for publication
> in accordance with "Instructions for Authors" in Fuzzy Sets and Systems.
> All manuscripts will undergo normal referee process.
> Radko Mesiar and Robert Fuller (Guest Editors).
> Papers for the Special Issue should be sent to:
> Radko Mesiar
> Radlinskeho 11
> 81368 Bratislava
