                                       WILF 2007
7th International Workshop on Fuzzy Logic and Applications
Hotel Portofino Kulm - Portofino Vetta, Ruta di Camogli (Genova), Italy
                                      July  7-10, 2007

             Conference Website:

WILF 2007 covers all topics in theoretical, experimental and applied
fuzzy techniques and systems   and is aimed to  bring together researchers
and developers from both academia and industry to report on the latest
scientific and theoretical advances, to discuss and debate major issues
and to demonstrate state-of-the-art systems.

WILF 2007 aims to stress the role and the synergies of  Fuzzy Sets and
Systems and the other  approaches of Natural Computing (that ranges  from
Neural Networks, Evolutionary Computation, Fuzzy Sets, Support Vector
Machines to Ant Colony Optimization, Particle Swarm Optimization,
Molecular Computing, Quantum Computing, and so on), in order to obtain a
better understanding of  computing going on in Nature as well as develop
powerful computing systems inspired by Nature for solving  complex problems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   1. General techniques and algorithms: Fuzzy Sets; Rough Sets;
Possibility Theory; Fuzzy Logic; Fuzzy Systems; Neuro-Fuzzy Systems;
Representation of Vague and Imprecise Knowledge; Fuzzy Evolutionary
Algorithms; Fuzzy Pattern Recognition; Fuzzy Data Fusion.
   2. Applications: Bioinformatics; Broadcasting; Control;
Communications; Information Retrieval;  Intelligent Resource Management;
Knowledge Management; Medical; Opto-mechatronics; Remote Sensing; Robotics;
Semantic Web; Speech Analysis; Television; Telepresence; Virtual Reality.
   3. Implementations: Analog and Digital Circuits and Systems;
Architectures and VLSI Hardware; Programmable Processors; Commercial

Prof. Ronald Yager of Iona College, New York, USA, will deliver an  invited
talk on "Retranslation and other Aspects of Computing with Words"

The scientific program will include, besides some invited talks,
contributed papers that will be presented in plenary oral or poster sessions.
Four  special sessions on   "Bioinformatics and
Biostatistics",   "Cross-Language Information Processing",  "Intuitionistic
Fuzzy Sets", and "Soft Computing in Image Processing" are  planned.

Proceedings of WILF 2007 will published by Springer as a volume of  Lecture
Notes in Computer Science. A selection of papers will be peer  reviewed for
originality, technical contents and relevance and will be considered for
publication in a special issue of a scientific journal.
