Brazilian Fuzzy Community



    In 2006 and 2008 the first steps toward the organization of a brazilian research community around the theme: "Fuzzy" were taken. It was done through the organization of the Symposium on Applications of Fuzzy Logic (Simpósio de Aplicações de Lógica Fuzzy - SALF - in Portuguese). The idea was the establishment of a biannual meeting with a regional character. The event revealed that we were in front of an area with a great demand, as the number of participants overcame the expectations and welcomed researchers and students of universities from different states like: São Paulo, Paraná, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais and Distrito Federal.

    On September 08-11th of 2009, the Brazilian Applied Mathematical Society (SBMAC) promoted the first Mini-symposium on the "Foundations and Applications of Fuzzy Logic" as a satellite event of the National Congress on Applied Mathematics, which was held in Cuiabá - MT. At that time about 2.000 CNPq Lattes curricula involving the keyword "Fuzzy" were found. With this scenario, the Thematic Committee on Fuzzy Systems was created in the Society, which induced the organization of an event  with a national character around the theme "Fuzzy". This event was called: First Brazilian Congress on Fuzzy Systems (I Congresso Brasileiro em Sistemas Fuzzy - I CBSF; in Portuguese), substituting the III SALF which had already been planned.

     The I CBSF expanded the scope of SALF, which focused mostly on applications. The word "System" assumed a broad sense, in order to capture both the investigation on Computational systems and the investigation on Logical systems that are also objects of investigation. With this scenario, the congress became the first event in Latin America about this theme. After that two other issues of the CBSF was realized in  Natal and João Pessoa.  

These events has been supported by the following scientific societies: 

  • Brazilian Society of Automatica (SBA), 
  • Brazilian Society of Computational Intelligence  (SBIC)
  • Brazilian Society of Applied Mathematics (SBMAC).
  • International Fuzzy Systems Association - IFSA
  • North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society (NAFIPS)
  • European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology (EUSFLAT)
  • Brazilian Society of Computation (SBC)

This homepage aims to inform the actions taken by the community. Here you find information about CBSFs and the community itself.
