Special Session on Recent trends in many-valued logic and fuzziness

2018 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2018)

Many-valued logics have constituted for several decades key conceptual
tools for the formal description and management of fuzzy, vague and
uncertain information. In the last few years, the study of these
logical systems has seen a bloom of new research related to the most
diverse areas of mathematics and applied sciences. Relevant recent
developments in this field are connected to the natural semantics of
non-classical events. A non-classical event is described by a formula
in the language of a given many-valued logic. A satisfying semantics
for such events must account for their different aspects, in
particular the “ontic” aspect, related to their vague nature, and the
“epistemic” aspect, related to our ignorance, or approximate knowledge
about them. The combination in a unique conceptual framework of the
logic and the probability of a class of non-classical events, usually
reached through the algebraic semantics and their topological or
combinatorial dualities, provides both the theoreticians and the
application-oriented scholars with powerful tools to deal with this
kind of events.

This special session is devoted to the most recent development in the
realm of many-valued logics, with particular emphasis on theoretical
advances related to algebraic or alternative semantics, combinatorial
aspects, topological and categorical methods, proof theory and game
theory, many-valued computation. In particular, results directed
towards a better understanding of the natural semantics of
non-classical events will be appreciated. Further, a special attention
is also given to connections and synergies between many-valued logics
and other different formal approaches to vague and approximate
reasoning, such as Rough Sets, Formal Concept Analysis and Relational
