objectives. The main part of the meeting consisted of oral
presentations by members of the SSG on the topics fuzzy-theory (E. A.
Shyllon, K. Heine), robust estimation (A. Carosio), artificial neural
networks (J. B. Miima), interval mathematics (S. Schön), GIS for
local geoid computation (M. Brovelli), and on general uncertainty
theory (H. Kutterer).
was decided to have annual closed working meetings of the SSG.
Besides, it is planned to organize an open international workshop on
robust and fuzzy techniques in March 2001 in Zürich.
