A Special Session of the

7th International Conference on
Fuzzy Theory & Technology
(FT&T 2000)

Trump Taj Mahal Casino and Resort
Atlantic City, New Jersey USA
February 27-March 3, 2000

Session Chair:
Benjoe A. Juliano

Cognitive Science is a field of study aimed at understanding the nature of
the human mind and the mental processes that underlie cognitive abilities.
Philosophers, Psychologists, Anthropologists, Linguists, Neuroscientists
and Computer Scientists have all approached the basic questions posed by
the nature of mental processes in their own ways as part of the broader
endeavours of their respective fields. Cognitive Science is distinguished
from these traditional disciplines by its highly interdisciplinary approach.
Aspects of cognition have to deal with various forms of uncertainty and
ambiguity, an area that fuzzy logic (FL) has proven to be applicable.

If you or someone you know are engaged in FL-related empirical and
conceptual studies aimed at assessing formal and computational models of
various aspects of cognition, including (but not limited to) the areas of

o information-acquisition and information-processing mechanisms
underlying cognitive abilities like perception, recognition,
information storage and information retrieval
o learning and acquisition of approximate models
o language acquisition
o comprehension and production
o concept acquisition
o problem solving
o reasoning

with possible applications (including, but not limited) to

o Databases and information retrieval
o Decision analysis
o Dynamic systems modeling & diagnosis
o Forecasting and prediction
o Hybrid intelligent systems
o Information granularity
o Intelligent control
o Intelligent information systems
o Machine vision
o Neuro biology
o Robotics and automation
o Signal processing
o System identification
o Virtual reality

you are encouraged to submit 3 copies of an extended summary not exceeding
4 pages of 10-point font, double-column, single-spaced text (1 page
minimum) with figures and tables included. All accepted summaries will
appear in the Proceedings. Long papers may be submitted at the conference
for possible publication in Information Sciences, an international journal
published by Elsevier and/or special-edition books. Every paper will be
reviewed by two referees.

Send all your submissions/proposals/inquiries to

Dr. Benjoe A. Juliano
Department of Computer Science
California State University - Chico
Chico, CA 95929-0410

Please take note of the following important dates:

September 10, 1999 - Extended summary submission deadline.
November 1, 1999 - Notification of acceptance.
December 1, 1999 - Camera-ready papers due.
December 1, 1999 - Deadline for early registration with discount.
February 27, 2000 - Opening of JCIS 2000.

Revised summaries should submitted, ready for publication, by December 1,
1999. A fee of $180 must be submitted on or before December 1, 1999 to
guarantee publication of your summary in the Proceedings. The publication
fee is deductible from either the full or preconference discounted
registration fee. There are additional fees for publishing more than one
paper or papers longer than 4 pages (10 point, double-column, single-spaced
text). Please visit the JCIS web site for additional information on these
charges. Summaries accepted for publication in Information Sciences must be
in LaTeX style.
