Call for papers : Special session on "Intuitionistic Fuzzy Sets in Emerging Domains"

Fuzz-IEEE 2020 (WCCI 2020, Glasgow, UK)


Aim and scope

A popular generalization of fuzzy set (FS) was proposed by K. T. Atanassov in the form of Intuitionistic Fuzzy Set (IFS) in 1986. The concept of IFS has attracted researchers from different fields due to practical applicability in numerous directions. Some of the major application domains in which IFS has already been able to show its potentials towards better results are Multi-Criteria Decision Making, Clustering, Scheduling, Control, Data Mining, Classification, Image Processing and Brain Research. The theoretical aspects of IFS is also explored by a number of researchers through its comparison with Interval-Valued FS (IVFS) which resulted in the introduction of interval valued IFS. Recently, the concepts of IFS and Type-2 FS are amalgamated to propose a new variant of FS, called Intuitionistic Type-2 Fuzzy Set. Also, the FS based aggregation operators are extended with the help of IFS. The concepts of intuitionistic fuzzy integrals are also a promising area of research. Thus, it is found that the theoretical and application-based study of IFS is a vibrant research topic, and accordingly IFS has established itself as one of the highly studied FS variant. Therefore, this special session welcomes contributions of IFS in both theory and applications.


Major topics include (but not limited to) are the following:

  • IFS in Clustering, Classification and Data Ming

  • IFS in Multi-Criteria Decision Making

  • IFS in Scheduling, Tuning and Control

  • IFS in Fog Computing, Edge Computing, and Big data

  • IFS in Health Care and Medical Science

  • IFS for Intelligent Transportation Management

  • IFS based Calculus and Aggregations

  • IFS for Multimedia Applications and Image Processing

  • Extensions of IFS: Theory and Applications

  • All other topics involving IFS
