Purpose: This conference is the successor of the highly
successful meeting held in Zurich in 1995
(ISFL95) 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 ISFL95 and to others working in this

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.

Submissions: Prospective authors are requested to send an
abstract 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.

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 # of contact author
- Topics which best describe the paper
(max. 5 keywords)

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

- ICSC Canada

Publication: All accepted papers will appear in the
conference proceedings, which will be
available at the conference. Some selected
papers may also be considered for journal

Deadlines: - Submission of Abstracts: July 10, 1996
- Notification of Acceptance: August 31, 1996
- Delivery of full papers: October 31, 1996

Workshop/Tutorials: A workshop on 'Approximate Reasoning in
Scheduling' (ARS'97) and various tutorials
will be held at the beginning of the
conference. For further information please
contact ICSC Canada

Social activities: A social programme, including a reception,
sightseeing and dinner will be organized.

Accommodation: Reservations may be made upon registration.
Full details will be made available with the
letter of acceptance.
