The new deadline for tutorial proposals is February 27, 2009.
Tutorials will be free to all registered FUZZ-IEEE 2009 participants.

The purpose for the tutorial session is to provide an excellent educational experience for those who are interested in the areas of Fuzzy Sets and Systems. Each tutorial presentation will be credited with $200 worth of compensation to be used to offset part of some expense: registration, hotel, ...

In addition, all tutorial speakers will be invited to a fine Korean BBQ.
Potential speakers should email a title, abstract, and short bio to the Tutorial Session Chair, Professor James Keller at
