             Sixth International Workshop on Fuzzy Logic
            Crema (Milan), Italy -- September 15-17, 2005

WILF 2005, this year at its 6th  edition, is an international workshop
on the theoretical, experimental, and applied fuzzy  and, more generally,
soft-computing techniques and systems which brings 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.

The scientific program will include, besides two invited talks,
contributed papers that will be presented in plenary oral or poster
sessions. Original and unpublished papers on WILF 2005 main research
areas and related topics are welcome. 
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:

Two special sessions on "Soft Computing in Image Processing" and
"Bioinformatics" are planned. A selection of papers will be peer reviewed
for originality, technical contents and relevance and will be considered for
publication in two special issues of journals.

Important Dates:

Submission deadline:             29 May 2005
Notification of acceptance:      20 June 2005
Camera ready papers due:         15 July 2005
Workshop:                        15 September 2005


Manuscripts, prepared according to the Springer LNCS format
(instructions downloadable from may not be
longer than 6 pages, including a cover sheet stating
(1) Paper title, (2) Keyword(s), (3) Authors' names and affiliations,
(4) Contact Author's name and contact details including telephone/fax
numbers and e-mail address.
Papers in PDF or gzipped PostScript format have to be submitted, no
later than May 29, 2005 following the link
The  papers  will be  peer-reviewed  by  at least  two members  of the
program committee.  Authors will  be notified via email of the results
of the review by June 20, 2005.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one author per paper to
register, attend the workshop, and present the paper.
WILF 2005 Proceedings, including all accepted contributions, will be
published by an international publisher. In addition, two special issues
of international journals are planned, which will include extended versions
of selected WILF 2005 papers.

The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the
basis of  the reviewers' comments and  will be asked to  send a camera
ready  version  of their  manuscripts,  along  with  text sources  and
pictures, by July 15, 2005.
