Special session on


Evaluation and Decision Models: A Fuzzy Perspective


Evaluation processes have been widely used in quality inspection of products and services, performance appraisal and management and in many other fields. The applications of intelligent techniques to these processes in which uncertainties are involved have opened new promising lines in this research area. Additionally the applications of decision analysis techniques to evaluation processes have produced successful results.

This invited session aims at providing an opportunity for researchers working in both research areas to discuss the state-of-the-art science and technologies, and their applications, to share their new ideas, original research results and practical experiences.


More specifically, we expect you to have any contribution with the focus on theory and practice instances of integrating fuzzy technology, one of the main Soft Computing constituent techniques, into evaluation and decision models to better solve those engineering, mathematical, and managerial problems involving uncertainty.


For the practical organization of the session, we would appreciate your contribution. We would take advantage of the outcome of this session to join researchers from both areas for future cooperation and joint research.

Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts to the invited session on Evaluation and Decision models: A fuzzy perspective. All papers submitted in this session will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

We expect you to submit a tentative title of your paper and your contact details for this session before 20th March, 2009.


Please submit your full paper contribution (4-6 pages) before April 15, 2009 through the conference website, specifying the title of the special session and the organizers in the headings of the contribution. Also please send a copy by email to or
