Call for Papers FUZZ-IEEE Special Session "Fuzzy transforms: theory and applications to data analysis and processing"

Fuzzy (F)-transforms successfully link various transforms (Fourier, Laplace, integral, Wavelet, etc.) with fuzzy approximation models. The general idea is to bring an original model into a special space where succeeding computations are easier. In particular, the F-transform transforms an infinitary object (a real function) into a finitary one (a finite vector). Another specific feature of the F-transform consists in including a fuzzy partition in its formal representation.

In the recent ten years, the theory of F-transform became an important constituent in the field of computational intelligence. It has a well justified theory and many sophisticated applications in image, signal and time series processing. Moreover, it can be successfully used in numerical methods for differential and integro-differential equations including the case when uncertainty is included in their formulation. The exceptional feature of the F-transform is that it successively and efficiently copes with classical problems as well as with problems that are affected by uncertainty or vagueness.

In image and signal processing, the F-transform effectively solves problems connected with up- (down-) scaling, reconstruction, edge detection, fusion, registration, etc. In time series analysis, the F-transform is used for trend extraction. In big data area, it works as a successful method of pattern recognition.
The F-transform propagates usefullness and effectiveness of fuzzy methods on all levels of data processing.

Objectives and topics:

The aim of this special session is to present recent developments and trends in the theory and applications of the F-transform, including all mentioned above. Beside theoretical aspects, the session will be focused on advanced applications in data analysis including handling big data.
We invite contributions that extend traditional ways of data analysis and propose adequate methods for various kinds of data processing including, but not limited to the following topics:
  • Theoretical aspects of the F-transform and its higher degree versions,
  • Inverse F-transform and how to improve its approximation quality,
  • Numerical methods on the basis of F-transform,
  • Big data processing on the basis of the F-transform,
  • Time series analysis and forecasting including:
    • time series trend extraction, local trend estimation and their models,
    • fuzzy time series, granular time series and their models,
    • forecasting methods: regression, fuzzy regression, fuzzy/linguistic IF-THEN rules.
