                             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: http://wilf2007.disi.unige.it


WILF workshop series covers all topics in theoretical, experimental and
applied fuzzy techniques and systems. It is aimed to bring together
researchers and developers from both academia and industry to report on
the latest scientific and theoretical advances in this field, and to
demonstrate the 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
 Software.

Invited speakers include:
Witold Pedrycz, University of Alberta, CANADA
Alessandro Villa, Universite' Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, FRANCE
Ronald Yager, Iona College, New York, USA
Joaquin Dopazo, Centro de Investigacion Principe Felipe, Valencia, SPAIN
Rada Mihalcea, University of North Texas, Denton, TX,  USA

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/LNAI. 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.
