Description of the session topic
The aim of this special session is to discuss and disseminate the most recent advancements focused on interpretability of fuzzy systems. Many fuzzy algorithms and models are indeed aimed at extracting knowledge from data, and the acquired knowledge must be usually communicated to users. However, as far as such knowledge is difficult to understand by users, the acceptance of such methods may be seriously compromised. Interpretability must be the central point on system modeling. In fact, some of the hottest and most recent research topics like Precisiated Natural Language, Computing With Words, and Human Centric Computing strongly rely on the interpretability of the designed models. The challenge is to better exploit fuzzy logic techniques for improving the human-centric character of many intelligent systems.
Interpretability is therefore a key property of intelligent systems of practical use, but its human-centric character poses difficult challenges both in design and evaluation. The issue of interpretability is tackled in different ways by focusing on specific facets of system modeling, such as the formalization of interpretability in an algebraic structure, or the definition of constraints to be imposed during model design and tuning. Moreover, the evaluation of interpretability is a mandatory issue to validate and compare models.

Scope of the session
The topics of interest of this special session include (but are not limited to):
Theoretical aspects of interpretability
Learning methods for interpretable models
Interpretability evaluation and improvements
Relations between interpretability and other criteria (such as accuracy, stability, etc.)
Design issues
Successful applications of interpretable fuzzy models

Notes
If you are interested in submitting a paper on these and related topics, please do not hesitate to contact one of the organizers of this special session.
Paper submission will be carried out through the webtool available for that at the conference website. Please, remind selecting the right special session related to your paper.
Papers submitted for special sessions are to be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the rest of regular contributions. As a result, all accepted papers will be included in the proceedings of the IFSA-EUSFLAT 2015.
