Last Thursday, I went to Tsukuba University for the 2009 Fuzzy Systems Symposium. I presented a paper entitled “On the reduction of reverse traffic in a Fuzzy Logic Based Dual Explicit Congestion Notification Mechanism for TCP/IP networks”. Although I was at the Symposium for only a few hours, I managed to interact with several seasoned researchers including Professor Michio Sugeno, one of the early Japanese researchers in Fuzzy Systems. Over the past four (or five decades), Prof Sugeno has made a lot of contributions in both the theoretical aspects and applications of the Fuzzy Systems. I first knew about him several years ago because of the Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy inference model.
Here are some photos from the FSS2009 in Tsukuba.
