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 2006 will be already the 27th seminar carrying on this tradition, will be devoted to the mathematical aspects of "Preferences, Games and Decisions". As usual, the aim of the Seminar is an intermediate and interactive exchange of surveys and recent results.

The topics of this seminar will include but are not limited to:

  • Learning preferences and aggregation procedures,
  • Games in lattices, consensus measures and coalition formation,
  • Capacities and non-additive integrals,
  • Ordinal approaches to multiple criteria decision making and data mining.

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.
