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 ˇ°ocean viewˇ± 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-2 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. A fuzzy control competition is also included in this year's conference. 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. Submissions for Fuzzy Competition are also highly welcomed.

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