ICAISC 2015 Special Sessions Descriptions


Properties and Applications of Fuzzy Calculus, Fuzzy Reasoning and Other Approaches to Partial Membership


Piotr Prokopowicz, Bartłomiej Starosta

Special Session organized within 15th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND SOFT COMPUTING, (ICAISC 2015), Zakopane, Poland, June 14-18, 2015, http://www.icaisc.eu/

Since several decades fuzzy reasoning has shown its applicability in decision making and optimization. On the other hand the development of mathematical aspects of the fuzzy set theory has been mostly directed to convex fuzzy numbers and its particular case - the L-R numbers. However, the fuzzy reasoning and calculus based on the classical concepts is diminishing its role with each year because of some disadvantages, e.g. multiple operations on convex fuzzy numbers are leading to large growth of fuzziness, and depend on the order of the operations due to the lack of the distributive law. Therefore, new research areas seem to be necessary. The Gradual Element in fuzzy theory has recently appeared, additional to Ordered Fuzzy Numbers, as a new area of investigation. Entirely different and promising approach to partial membership is proposed by metasets, where algebraic operations have no aforementioned defects.
The aim of this Special Session is bringing together researchers in fuzzy reasoning and calculus, other approaches to partial membership, like metasets, and applications of these theories, to provide directions for further research in these fields. The philosophy of the special session should be to keep a chance for informal critical discussion.
The general formula of this session was proposed at the previous conference ICAISC by the deceased in March 2014 Professor Witold Kosinski. At the core of proposal of such session in the present edition of the ICAISC is the appreciation for the contribution and engagement of Professor Witold Kosinski in discovering and popularizing properties and applications of fuzzy calculations (with a particular focus on Ordered Fuzzy Numbers).
Topis of interest:
1. Fuzzy reasoning and its properties, including symbolic reasoning
2. Fuzzy inference systems and controllers
3. Learning in fuzzy systems
4. Aggregation and other operations, and their properties
5. Applications of fuzzy reasoning and calculus in the social life, medicine, finance and manufacturing
6. Applications of metasets and other approaches to partial membership.

Biometrics System and Security for Intelligent Computing


Anton Varfolomieiev, Janusz Bobulski, Mariusz Kubanek

Special Session organized within 15th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND SOFT COMPUTING, (ICAISC 2015), Zakopane, Poland, June 14-18, 2015, http://www.icaisc.eu/

Biometric systems enable reliable automatic identification or verification of humans based on physiological and/or behavioural characteristics. The need of biometric systems has seen an enormous growth in day-to-day activities due to their ease of use, accuracy and throughput.

The sesion will cover but it is not limited to:

  • Biometric (fingerprint, face, palmprint, iris, gait, …)
  • Signature and writer identification
  • Hardware implementation of biometric systems
  • Secured biometric systems
  • Liveness detection in biometric
  • Privacy issues and template protection techniques
  • Multimodal biometrics and fusion approaches
  • Anti-spoofing issues in biometrics
  • Novel biometric traits
  • Biometrics interoperability
  • Quality based biometric assessment
  • Template update
  • Template security
