This is a call for abstracts of presentations for the

31st Linz Seminar on Fuzzy Set Theory

"Lattice-Valued Logic and its Applications"

February 9-13, 2010
Bildungszentrum St. Magdalena, Linz (Austria)

Since their inception in 1979 the Linz Seminars on Fuzzy Sets 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  
direction for further research. The seminar is deliberately kept small  
and intimate so that informal critical discussion remains central.  
There are no parallel sessions, and during the week there are several  
round tables to discuss open problems and promising directions for  
further work.

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 to present and discuss recent advances of  
mathematical fuzzy logic (understood in the broader framework of  
lattice-valued logics) and to 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  

Lattice-based logic

·     Predicate, higher order, and modal fuzzy logics
·     Semantic, proof theoretical, and model theoretical approaches
·     Complexity considerations

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 follow-up round  
tables for discussion of open problems and issues raised in the talks.

Petr Cintula  and Lawrence N. Stout will act as Chairpersons of the  
Program Committee, the following invited speakers have already  
confirmed their participation:

·     Radim Belohlavek (Palacký University, Olomouc, Czech Republic)

.     Francesc Esteva

·     Christian Fermüller (Vienna University of Technology, Vienna,  

·     Nikolaos Galatos  (University of Denver, CO, USA)

·     Joseph Y. Halpern (Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA)

·     George Metcalfe (University of Bern, Switzerland)
