13 - 17 June, 2000. Arrival day is 12 June and departure day is 18 June .


Since their inception in 1980 the Linz Seminars on Fuzzy Sets have emphasized the development of mathematical aspects of fuzzy sets by bringing together researchers in fuzzy sets and established mathematicians whose work outside the fuzzy setting can provide direction for further research. The seminar is deliberately kept small and initimate so that informal critical discussion remains central. There are no parallel sessions and during the week there are several round tables to discuss open problems and promising directions for further work. Linz2000 will be the 21st seminar carrying on this tradition.

Linz2000 will deal with Mathematical Aspects of Non-classical Logics and Fuzzy Inference. It is the hope of the organizers that the talks will provide a mathematical setting for both the theory and the practice of logical means of dealing with inference under uncertainty, limited resources, modalities of place, time, and state of knowledge.

This Seminar will consider, but not be limited to, the following topics in logic:

The total number of participants is usually bounded above by 40 with broad international representation and a mix of pure and applied interests. Invited talks are usually allowed an hour and a half and contributed talks 45 minutes. There are no parallel sessions. The Seminar will feature ample time for discussion of each presentation, a fundamental aspect of the "Linz" tradition. The schedule allows for daily round tables for discussion of open problems and issues raised by the day's talks.

If you are interested in giving a contributed talk, please submit an abstract of no more than 650 words to the Program Chair. The deadline has past, but late submissions will be considered.

  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. The subject line for such an e-mail should include the phrase "Linz2000 Seminar" and it should be addressed to  lstout@sun.iwu.edu
  2. 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.
  3. 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:
  4. Lawrence Stout
    Program Chair of  Linz2000 Seminar
    Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
    Illinois Wesleyan University

    Also include in your submission fax number(s), e-mail address(es), or any information that might be helpful.

  5. The deadline for all submissions was 15 March 2000, though late submissions are being accepted; and you should be notified no later than 15 April, 2000 concerning acceptance of your presentation into the Seminar.
  6. 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.
