Call for Papers


The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2017), a top-leading event in the area of theory and application of fuzzy logic, will be held in Naples, Italy. Naples is the third largest municipality in Italy. The city is located in the south of Italy. It is nestled between the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida on one side, and the coast of Amalfi and Sorrento on the other, forming a unique natural heritage in the world. The history of Naples is characterised by a plethora of different dominations that have left inestimable pieces of art and signs of different cultures making the whole urban area a UNESCO World Heritage Site. FUZZ-IEEE 2017 will be hosted at Royal-Continental Hotel, a fantastic and welcoming conference venue situated at one of the most beautiful places on the planet, Naples's waterfront. FUZZ-IEEE 2017 will represent a unique meeting point for scientists and engineers, both from academia and industry, to interact and discuss the latest enhancements and innovations in the field. The topics of the conference will cover all the aspects of theory and applications of fuzzy logic and its hybridisations with other artificial and computational intelligence techniques.

The 2017 edition of Fuzz-IEEE will be based on an innovation program which will feature a leading-edge showcase of state-of-the-art fuzzy theories and technologies, innovation challenges, talks by innovation leaders and entrepreneurs, tutorials, and research networking.

Paper Submission
