Dear colleagues,

The deadline for the special session proposals has been extended to December 25.
I would greatly appreciate your contribution to the success of the conference.

The Special Session site of the conference is to be opened next week.
We are sorry for the inconveniences the delay might have caused to you.
The approved proposals will be added to the list of the special 
sessions on the site as approved.

Thank you very much in advance for your support.

Best regards,

Naoyuki KUBOTA, Dr.
Special Sessions Chair

FUZZ-IEEE 2009 (2009 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems) 
will take place at International Convention Center Jeju(ICC  Jeju), 
Jeju Island, Korea on August 20-24, 2008 as detailed below.
(see also http://www.fuzz-ieee2009.info/index.html).

You have been highly recommended as an expert in your research area 
and we would like to encourage you to organize a session for the 
conference. All special session committee members will be duly 
acknowledged in the conference proceedings.

As a guideline, a special session is expected to have 5-6 
presentations. We would need information on the organizers, the 
session title, the abstract (brief description of the session topic), 
keywords of the session, the tentative list of presentation, contact 
organizer, his/her e-mail addresses, and, URL of the link to the special session.

If you hesitate to make your contribution just because you need more 
time, please contact me. Also, please feel free to make any question 
or suggestion you might have.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your support.

====== FUZZ-IEEE 2009 Call for Papers ======

The Annual IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems, well known 
as FUZZ-IEEE, is one of the premier international conferences in the 
field of fuzzy sets and systems. FUZZ-IEEE 2009 (18th in its series) 
will be held on Jeju Island, Korea, which is one of the most 
beautiful islands in Asia with a historical wealth of cultural and 
tourist attractions. The conference venue will be at the newly built “ 
ocean view” Jeju International Convention Center . The conference 
will cover the whole range of research and applications in fuzzy 
systems and soft computing, including but not limited to:
    * Adaptive, hierarchical, evolutionary, neural and nature-inspired systems
    * Hybrid systems of computational intelligence techniques
    * Fuzzy systems and internet applications
    * Kansei, human-machine interface, brain-machine interface
    * Fuzzy image, speech and signal processing, vision and multimedia
    * Industrial, financial, and medical applications
    * Fuzzy control and robotics, sensors, fuzzy hardware, fuzzy architectures
    * Fuzzy optimization and design, decision analysis and support
    * Fuzzy systems design, modeling, identification, fault detection
    * Fuzzy data analysis - clustering and classifiers, pattern 
recognition, bio-informatics
    * Fuzzy information processing - information extraction and 
retrieval, fusion, text mining
    * Knowledge discovery, learning, reasoning, agents, knowledge representation
    * Type II fuzzy sets, computing with words, granular computing, 
rough sets, fuzzy human computer interaction
    * Fuzzy set theory, fuzzy measures, fuzzy integrals
    * Rough sets, grey systems
    * Optimization, decision analysis, decision making, 
multi-criteria decision making
    * Software and hardware applications
In addition to regular oral and poster presentations, the conference 
will include a full program of tutorials, specialist workshops and 
panel sessions together with keynote talks from several well known 
leaders in the field. Submissions for oral and poster presentation 
are invited from researchers, practitioners, and students worldwide. 
Proposals for Special Sessions are highly welcomed. Each proposal 
should give a description of the session topic and the names of the 
contributors plus their paper titles. Papers submitted to special 
sessions will go through the normal reviewing process. Proposals for 
Tutorials are also highly welcomed. An outline for each tutorial 
should be submitted and any pre-requisites for the intended audience.

Further details of the submission process will be posted on the 
conference website in the near future.
