CFP: IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems - Special Issue on Advances in Type-2 Fuzzy Sets and Systems
Type-2 fuzzy sets and systems have emerged during the past decade as major areas within the general field of fuzzy sets and systems. This is because they are a natural next step in the progression of general research about fuzzy sets and systems and because many applications that use type-2 fuzzy sets have already demonstrated significant performance improvements over using type-1 fuzzy sets.
During the past decade most of the work that used type-2 fuzzy sets and systems focused on the simplest kinds of such sets and system, namely interval type-2 fuzzy sets (also known as interval-valued fuzzy sets) and interval type-2 fuzzy logic systems. Recently, however, important advances have been made in the theory of general type-2 fuzzy sets and systems. Type-2 fuzzy sets also are important for computing with words, because words mean different things to different people and such linguistic uncertainty can be modeled using type-2 fuzzy sets.
The aim of this special issue is to highlight the most significant recent developments - advances - on the topics of type-2 fuzzy sets and systems, to identify the most recent research directions, and to publicize this area to a wider audience.

Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work in the areas including (but not limited to) the following (note that "type-2" includes interval type-2/interval-valued and general type-2):
- Theoretical studies of current type-2 paradigms and algorithms
- evelopments of new type-2 paradigms and algorithms
- Convincing applications of type-2 fuzzy logic
- Type-2 fuzzy logic control
- Type-2 classification/clustering
- Type-2 for computing with words
- Quantitative comparisons of type-2 and type-1 fuzzy systems
- Type-2 uncertainty measures
- Optimization under type-2 constraints
- Optimization of Type-2 fuzzy systems
- Learning type-2 fuzzy systems
- Adaptive type-2 fuzzy systems
