IFSA'99 Taiwan
The Eighth International Fuzzy Systems Association World Congress

August 17-20, 1999
National Tsing Hua University
Hsinchu, Taiwan, R.O.C.

Locally organized by: In cooperation with:

National Tsing Hua University Ministry of Education
National Central University National Science Council
National Chiao Tung University International Fuzzy Systems
Chinese Fuzzy Systems Association
Association T (CFSAT) Industrial Technology Research


The objective of the Congress is to encourage communication between
researchers and engineers throughout the world whose works
are connected to or based on fuzzy set theory and related areas. It is
also an opportunity to present industrial applications,
new technologies and products which are based on,
or use fuzzy logic, fuzzy sets and other soft computing methods.
