Dear Colleague:

In the upcoming Sixth International Fuzzy Systems Association World Congress
to be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 22-28, 1995, a special session on 
FUZZY LOGIC in BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING" will be held to highlight this 
emerging technology.

On behalf of the organization committee, I am pleased to invite you to submit 
a paper to this session. If you are interested in participating in 
this conference, please reply by e-mail (akay at gandalf.rutgers.edu) or

	Sixth International Fuzzy Systems Association World Congress

			    Sao Paulo-Brazil

			    July 22-28, 1995

			 First Call for Papers
			      ___________

 
The International Fuzzy Systems Association is pleased to announce the
sixth IFSA World Congress (IFSA '95) to be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil,
from July 22nd to 28th, 1995. The goals of the congress are twofold;
the first is to encourage communication between researchers throughout
the world whose research either draws support from, or complements, the
theory and applications of fuzzy sets related models. The second goal
is to explore industrial applications of fuzzy systems technology to
make systems more convenient. The theme of IFSA '95 is "New Frontiers",
aiming at enlarging the horizons of research in fuzzy sets beyond its
traditional areas.

The congress is divided into 7 main topical areas, whose themes include, 
but are not limited to, the theory or applications in the topics listed
below with the respective area chairs.

Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts for consideration by
the program committee. Four copies of 4-page extended abstracts, one
paper submission form, and one cadastration form filled for each author,
should be sent to the secretariat (see address below) before November
1st, 1994. Fax submissions will not be accepted. The proceedings will 
contain the final versions of refereed papers, prepared on camera-ready 
sheets. For any further inquires, please send a message to ifsa95 at dep.fem.unicamp.br.
