The EUSFLAT 2019 Best Student Paper Award of the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology prize was awarded to scientists associated with the Institute of Mathematics at the University of Silesia.
European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology brings together scientists who conduct research in fuzzy logic. The EUSFLAT members organise scientific conferences every two years. During these events, scientists from academic centres around the world present the results of their analyses.
This year’s edition took place at the beginning of September in Prague, and the main conference theme concerned, among other things, the theory and application of computational intelligence, fuzzy systems and soft computing. Such meetings provide an opportunity to establish cooperation with experts from other countries, whose speeches often inspire the audience (academics, PhD students and students) to search for new research subjects.
One of the event agenda items was the competition for the best publications in fuzzy logic. The EUSFLAT 2019 Best Student Paper Award of the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology prize was awarded to scientists associated with the Institute of Mathematics at the University of Silesia: PhD student Katarzyna Miś, MSc, Assoc. Prof. Michał Baczyński, Professor of the University of Silesia and Dr. Piotr Helbin for the publication entitled “Some Remarks on the Generalized Scheme of Reduction to Absurdity and Generalized Hypothetical Syllogism in Fuzzy Logic”.
The goal of the first stage in this category was to select three best PhD theses. Next, PhD students presented them to the members of the competition jury, who chose the best presentation on this basis.
‘First of all, the awarded prize means that the subject which we chose is interesting for the recipients, world class specialists in fuzzy logic. Secondly, it is also the appreciation of the performance of our PhD Student, Katarzyna Miś, MSc, who gave an outstanding presentation of the obtained analysis results’, says Prof. Michał Baczyński, supervisor of the thesis prepared by the PhD student.
‘This distinction is a form of recognition of my work so far. The scientists specialising in this field clearly see potential in the solutions that we propose, which is particularly important for us. In a way, it also compensates for the time I have spent considering, discussing and searching for answers to the key questions which are the subject of my PhD thesis’, concludes Katarzyna Miś, MSc, co-author of the awarded publication.
