Call for Papers FUZZ-IEEE Special Session "Applications of fuzzy set theory in clustering, classification and regression analysis"

Tools for regression analysis, clustering and classification can become very powerful if combined with the application of fuzzy set theory. The application of fuzzy set theory can be utilized for to estimate the relationship among variables in environments where uncertainty exists-though the uncertainty might be overlooked during data collection or for the simplification purpose. In real-world applications, this uncertainty may derive from the granularity of information for generalization purposes, the influence of human subjective judgement and partially available information, due to miss-recording or inaccurate measurements. One of the effective ways of capturing the useful information in such environments is with the application of fuzzy set theory.

This special session aims at discussing innovative approaches that utilize the application of fuzzy set theory for classification, clustering and regression analysis to engineering problems. Since the application clustering, classification and regression analysis is widely applicable in operations research and complex systems analysis; we invite all the related researchers from the fields of computer science and engineering, economy, finance, marketing, social sciences, and healthcare.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the theory and applications of:
  • Fuzzy regression analysis
  • Fuzzy clustering
  • Fuzzy classification
  • Outlier detection methods which utilize fuzzy set theory
  • Designing new similarity/model fitting measures for least squared fuzzy regression models
  • The application of hybrid optimization for fuzzy regression, clustering or classification methods
