Call for Papers
Second International ICSC Symposium on
FUZZY LOGIC AND APPLICATIONS / ISFL'97
To be held at the
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, Switzerland
February 12 - 14, 1997

I. SPONSORS
Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), Zurich, Switzerland and
ICSC, International Computer Science Conventions, Canada/Switzerland

II. PURPOSE OF THE CONFERENCE
This conference is the successor of the highly successful meeting
held in Zurich in 1995 (ISFL’95) and is intended to provide a
forum for the discussion of new developments in fuzzy logic and
its applications. An invitation to participate is extended both
to those who took part in ISFL’95 and to others working in this
field. Applications of fuzzy logic have played a significant role
in industry, notably in the field of process and plant control,
especially in applications where accurate modelling is difficult.
The organisers hope that contributions will come not only from
this field, but also from newer applications areas, perhaps in
business, financial planning management, damage assessment,
security, and so on.

III. TOPICS
Contributions are sought in areas based on the list below, which is
indicative only. Contributions from new application areas will be
particularly welcome.
- Basic concepts such as various kinds of Fuzzy Sets, Fuzzy
Relations, Possibility Theory
- Neuro-Fuzzy Systems and Learning
- Fuzzy Decision Analysis
- Image Analysis with Fuzzy Techniques
- Mathematical Aspects such as non-classical logics, Category
Theory, Algebra, Topology, Chaos Theory
- Modeling, Identification, Control
- Robotics
- Fuzzy Reasoning, Methodology and Applications, for example in
Artificial Intelligence, Expert Systems, Image Processing and
Pattern Recognition, Cluster Analysis, Game Theory,
Mathematical Programming, Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms
and Evolutionary Computing
- Implementation, for example in Engineering, Process Control,
Production, Medicine
- Design
- Damage Assessment
- Security
- Business, Finance, Management

VI. PUBLICATION OF PAPERS
All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings,
published by ICSC Academic Press. In addition, some selected
papers may also be considered for journal publication.

VII. SUBMISSION OF MANUSCRIPTS
Prospective authors are requested to send two copies of their
abstracts of 500 words for review by the International Scientific
Committee. All abstracts must be written in English, starting
with a succinct statement of the problem, the results achieved,
their significance and a comparison with previous work. If
authors believe that more details are necessary to substantiate
the main claims of the paper, they may include a clearly marked
appendix that will be read at the discretion of the International
Scientific Committee.

The abstract should also include:
- Title of proposed paper
- Authors names, affiliations, addresses
- Name of author to contact for correspondence
- E-mail address and fax number of contact author
- Name of topic which best describes the paper (max. 5 keywords)

Contributions are welcome from those working in industry and having
experience in the topics of this conference as well as from
academics.

The conference language is English.

Abstracts may be submitted either by electronic mail (ASCII text),
fax or mail (2 copies) to either one of the following addresses:

ICSC Canada
P.O. Box 279
Millet, Alberta T0C 1Z0
Canada
Fax: +1-403-387-4329

VIII. OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS
Anyone wishing to organise a workshop, tutorial or discussion, is
requested to contact the chairman of the conference, Prof. Nigel
Steele (e-mail: nsteele@coventry.ac.uk / phone: +44-1203-838568 /
fax: +44-1203-838585) before August 31, 1996.

IX. DEADLINES AND REGISTRATION
It is the intention of the organisers to have the conference
proceedings available for the delegates. Consequently, the
deadlines below are to be strictly respected:

- Submission of Abstracts: May 31, 1996
- Notification of Acceptance: August 31, 1996
- Delivery of full papers: October 31, 1996

X. ACCOMMODATION
Block reservations will be made at nearby hotels and accommodation
at reasonable rates (not included in the registration fee) will be
available upon registration (full details will follow with the
letters of acceptance)

Winter is an attractive season in Switzerland and many famous
alpine resorts are in easy reach by rail, bus or car for a one
or two day excursion. The city of Zurich itself is the proud home
of many art galleries, museums or theatres. Furthermore, the world
famous shopping street 'Bahnhofstrasse' or the old part of the town
with its many bistros, bars and restaurants are always worth a
visit.
