The CITAB Research Centre/UTAD University and EUROFUSE invite you to participate in the EUROFUSE Workshop on Fuzzy Methods for Knowledge- Based Systems. This meeting will be held at the World Heritage Site of the Douro Wine Region, Régua, Portugal, 21-23 September.

All papers accepted for EUROFUSE2011 will be also published in the conference proceedings. The conference proceedings will be published in Springer "Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing" (listed in ISI Proceedings index).
Authors of a selected number of papers (6 to 8 papers) will be asked to expand their work and submit it to a peer-review process for possible inclusion in a Special Issue of the international journal Fuzzy Sets and Systems.
The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners developing and applying fuzzy techniques in preference modelling and decision making. The workshop is intended to establish the New Trends in the field and to encourage cooperation among the participants.
The program schedule will consist of 3 working days and a half day excursion to the Alto Douro World State Heritage Region. Each day will start with an invited lecture followed by a number of regular contributions; no parallel sessions will be scheduled. The number of participants foreseen is between 35 and 50. The Workshop will concentrate on, but not limited to:
  • Preference representation and modelling:
    • Preference relations
    • Preference learning
    • Linear and non-linear utility representations
    • Logical representations
    • Linguistic preference modelling
  • Properties and semantics of preferences:
    • Preference composition, merging, and aggregation
    • Incomplete or inconsistent preferences
    • Reasoning about preferences
    • Preference and choice
  • Knowledge extraction:
    • Data-base querying and repair
    • Classification and Data Mining
    • Image processing
    • Non-monotonic reasoning
    • Information retrieval
    • Recommendation systems and
    • other e-commerce applications
  • Decision making
    • Multiple criteria/attributes
    • Qualitative decision theory
    • Rationality
    • Risk analysis
    • Recommender systems
    • Web evaluation
  • Extensions of fuzzy sets:
    • Interval-valued fuzzy sets -
    • Fuzzy rough sets
    • etc.
  • Aggregation operators:
    • Decision making and aggregation operators
    • Construction of fuzzy measures and AGOPs
    • Linguistic aggregation operators
    • Interval-valued aggregation operators
