About this Seminar

Since their inception in 1979 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 intimate 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.  

LINZ 2004 will be already the 25th seminar carrying on this tradition. It is therefore a good opportunity to review the most important mathematical aspects of fuzzy systems. As usual, the aim of the Seminar is an intermediate and interactive exchange of surveys and recent results. We expect that the presented talks will provide a comprehensive mathematical framework for the theory and application of fuzzy systems.

The Seminar will consider the following aspects without being strictly limited to them:

  • Many-valued logics
  • Logical operations
  • Topology and category theory
  • Non-additive measures and integrals
  • Relations to probability and statistics
The total number of participants is usually bounded above by 40 with broad international representation and a mix of pure and applied interests. 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 round tables for discussion of open problems and issues raised in the talks.
