About this Seminar

Since their inception in 1979, the Linz Seminars on Fuzzy Set Theory have emphasized the development of mathematical aspects of fuzzy sets by bringing together researchers in fuzzy sets and established mathematicians whose work outside the fuzzy setting can provide directions for further research. The philosophy of the seminar has always been to keep it deliberately small and intimate so that informal critical discussions remain central.

LINZ 2010 will be the 31st seminar carrying on this tradition and is devoted to the theme “Lattice-Valued Logic and its Applications”. The goal of the seminar is present and discuss recent advances of mathematical fuzzy logic (understood in broader framework of lattice-valued logics) and concentrate on its applications in various areas of computer science, linguistics, and philosophy.

Accordingly, the topics of the Seminar will include but not be limited to Lattice-based logic:

  • Predicate, higher order, and modal fuzzy logics
  • Sematic, Proof theoretical, and Model theoretical approaches
  • Complexity considerations
and applications of that logic to
  • Knowledge representation
  • Reasoning with imperfect information
  • Hedges and intensifiers
  • Theories of vagueness
  • Artificial intelligence

The "Linz" tradition has these key features: the number of participants of the Linz Seminars is usually bounded above by 40 with broad international representation and a mix of pure and applied interests; there are no parallel sessions so that all participants focus on each presentation and fully engage each topic; and there is ample time for discussion of each presentation, with followup round tables for discussion of open problems and issues raised in the talks.
