EUSFLAT/LFA 2005 Retrospect
The Joint 4th
Conference of the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology (EUSFLAT 2005) and the 11th Rencontres Francophones sur la Logique Floue et ses Applications (LFA 2005)
took place in Barcelona, Spain, between September 7 and 9, 2005. The conference was organized by the Universitat Polytècnica de Catalunya
. Featuring around 230 accepted papers and having more than 250 participants, EUSFLAT/LFA 2005 was the biggest EUSFLAT conference ever. The conference was very well organized and a truly enlightening and inspiring event. The nice social events complemented the excellent scientific program. EUSFLAT/LFA 2005 was a truly great event that all participants will surely remember for a very long time ! (not only because of the rare opportunity to experience tornados in Europe)
EUSFLAT cordially thanks the organizers for doing an outstanding job in making EUSFLAT 2005 a great event!
On the evening of Wednesday, September 7, 2005, the EUSFLAT General Assembly took place in Barcelona. The minutes of the meeting are currently under preparation. As the most important information for all EUSFLAT members, let us just mention that there was one candidature for the EUSFLAT Board
. The candidature was confirmed by unanimous vote. The new EUSFLAT Board
has started its work with a meeting on September 9, 2005. Its period ranges until the assembly at EUSFLAT 2007 in September 2007.
