Call for Papers FUZZ-IEEE Special Session "Fuzzy Logic for Economics and Finance"

We invite original submissions for the special session of The 2015 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2015) dealing with the implementation of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic for economic and financial phenomenon.

There is a growing academic interest on using fuzzy set approach and fuzzy logic framework for economic and financial problems. Since most of the economic phenomenon are subject to uncertainty and human error, fuzziness is an unavoidable nature of business life. Forecasting, asset management, investment appraisal, risk assessment and many other business problems are investigated in the literature, and there is still a gap between the theory of economics (also finance) and the power of engineering. Fuzzy logic approach is capable of handling various practical problems while it requires to be supported with the theoretical basis of fundamental economics. A special session titled "Fuzzy Logic for Economics and Finance" would be timely and contributing as well as attractive for scholars in the field. Proper use of fuzzy set theory and methods for merging economic theory and fuzzy logic are some emerging topics in the engineering research. Therefore, we expect a particular volume of papers contributing to the session. Papers dealing with inconsistency between the theory of economics/finance and fuzzy aided engineering applications are particularly welcomed.
