Dear Colleagues,

IFSA-SCIS 2017 (Joint 17th World Congress of International Fuzzy Systems Association and 9th International Conference on Soft Computing and Intelligent Systems) is organized every two years with the focus of bringing together scientists working on Fuzzy Sets and Soft Computing methods. It also provides a forum for the exchange of ideas between participants all over the world. 2017 edition of IFSA-SCIS 2017 will take place in Otsu, Japan on 27th-30th June 2017.
