Prague, 1618 June 2016
Originating as an attempt to provide solid logical foundations for fuzzy
set theory, and motivated also by philosophical and computational
problems of vagueness and imprecision, Mathematical Fuzzy Logic (MFL)
has become a significant subfield of mathematical logic. Research
in this area focuses on many-valued logics with linearly ordered truth
values and has yielded elegant and deep mathematical theories and
challenging problems, thus continuing to attract an ever increasing
number of researchers. However, the time has come to reevaluate whether
current research has lived up to the initial goals.
was intended create
an opportunity to take a critical stance on MFL motivations and
applications and discuss its future. We invited contributions to rethink
the research directions of MFL from the point of view of pure
mathematical logic, its philosophical motivations and (computer science)
