Homage to Lotfi A. Zadeh

IPMU is a conference which always gathers some of the most important researchers in fuzzy-related areas to discuss the current state-of-the-art and possible future developments. We are proud to say that Lotfi A. Zadeh was one of its co-founders and contributed to each of its editions between 1986 and 2008. In the next IPMU edition, a well-deserved homage will be paid to his scientific work.

The following special activities will be scheduled, among others:
– A special panel session on the legacy of Lotfi Zadeh, in which panelists will speak of the scientific and application legacy of Lotfi Zadeh’s ideas.
– The creation of the Lotfi A. Zadeh IPMU best paper award.
– A photo book illustrating the Lotfi A. Zadeh continued close relationship with IPMU participants.
