In 2006 the Russian Association for Fuzzy Systems and Soft Computing (RANSMV) launched a
new scientific journal that was devoted entirely to the problems indicated in the title of the
association. Despite the rich history of scientific research in this field in Russia there has not
been a special journal on the subject. Thus decision of RANSMV was aimed to solve this
The final decision concerning opening of the journal was made as a result of communications
carried out by delegates of RANSMV on the jubilee conference BISCSE 2005 (University of
California, Berkeley, USA) with a number of foreign experts and with direct approval of the idea
by prof. Zadeh, who kindly agreed to be its honorary editor.
It publishes articles on the following subjects:
Possibility theory, fuzzy sets and related formalisms for modeling uncertainty (including
Possibilistic probabilistic models and methods of optimization and decision-making.
Evolutionary modeling and genetic algorithms.
Systems with chaotic dynamics.
Soft computing technologies.
Intelligent information systems with fuzzy logic.
Stated list of journal's topics does not limit the choice of authors. Interesting, relevant and quality
materials are always welcome.
