IFSA - NAFIPS 2019

THIS PAGE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. SOME LINKS ARE NOT ACTIVE AT THIS TIME. PLEASE REMEMBER TO CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES.

The Department of Mathematics and the Center for Advanced Computer Studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette are pleased to host the joint 2019 IFSA World Congress and NAFIPS Annual Conference. The conference is scheduled for June 18-22, 2019. The location is the Wyndham Garden Inn in Lafayette, Louisiana, USA. Please plan to join us.

This is the 18th World Congress of the International Fuzzy Systems Association and the 38th North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society Annual Conference.

Details about the conference will be posted here as they become available.

Please direct inquiries to one of the general co-chairs.

FUZZ-IEEE 2019

The 2019 IEEE International Conference On Fuzzy Systems will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - June 23-26, 2019. Since this world-leading event focusing on the theory and application of fuzzy logic, will be held in New Orleans immediately following IFSA - NAFIPS 2019, you might want to consider attending both. FUZZ-IEEE 2019 will be hosted at the JW Marriott, a premier conference venue nestled in the heart of the world-famous French Quarter. FUZZ-IEEE 2019 will represent a unique meeting point for scientists and engineers, from academia and industry, to interact and discuss the latest enhancements and innovations in the field. The topics of the conference will cover all aspects of theory and applications of fuzzy logic and its hybridisations with other artificial and computational intelligence methods.
