2 - 6 February 1999. Arrival day is 1 February and departure day is 7 February.


Since its original formulation by L. Zadeh, the concept of a fuzzy subset has been viewed and used as a tool to reformulate, apply, generalize, and enrich many traditional concepts and theories in logic, topology, measure theory, algebra, and other mathematical disciplines. The 20th Linz Seminar on Fuzzy Set Theory is dedicated to summarizing these developments in topology and algebra so as to stimulate further and better research as well as clarify the distinctive role of fuzzy sets in these disciplines. Additionally, it is a special purpose of the Seminar to clarify the meaning of morphism between algebraic structures based on fuzzy subsets.

This Seminar will therefore consider, but not be limited to, the following topics in topology and algebra: Featuring both invited and contributed talks, the Seminar will feature ample time for participants to fully discuss each presentation, a fundamental aspect of the "Linz" tradition. Thus it is anticipated that the 20th Seminar will make a significant contribution to the mathematics of fuzzy sets in topology and algebra.

If you are interested in giving a contributed talk, please submit an abstract of no more than 650 words to the Program Chair no later than 31 October 1998.
  1. It is preferred that your submission be made by e-mail, in which case it is also preferred that this submission be a LaTeX 2e (or 2.09) file in ASCII—please, no zipped files—if at all possible. The subject line for such an e-mail should include the phrase "20th Linz Seminar" and it should be addressed to BOTH of the following: rodabaug@math.ysu.edu, serod@concentric.net
    It would also be helpful if your submission included your snail-mail address, fax number, and any additional e-mail addresses or phone numbers that you deem helpful.
  2. If you wish to make your submission by snail-mail, then please mail your abstract, including hardcopy and a disk with a LaTeX 2e (or 2.09) file (if possible), to the following address:
    Stephen E. Rodabaugh
    Program Chair of 20th Linz Seminar
    Department of Mathematics and Statistics
    Youngstown State University
    Youngstown, OH, USA 44555-3609
    Also include in your submission fax number(s), e-mail address(es), or any information that might be helpful.
  3. The deadline for all submissions is 31 October 1998; and you should be notified no later than 30 November 1998 concerning acceptance of your presentation into the Seminar.
  4. Because of the limited number of slots for contributed talks, these slots will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis from those abstracts deemed suitable.

Monday, February 1 is the suggested arrival day, as the Seminar will start on Tuesday morning at 9:00 a.m.

The airport Linz provides connections mainly with Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Vienna, Zürich, and Brussels (daily) as well as with Amsterdam and Paris. It is also possible to fly to Vienna and to continue by train (two hours) to Linz (the bus running from the Vienna airport to the Westbahnhof takes approximately one hour).

Excellent railway connections with all major cities in Central, Western and Eastern Europe.

In February the weather is usually cold, with temperatures often below zero (centigrades), and the chance of snow or rain is rather high.
