The main organizer of the conference is the Institute for Research and Applications of Fuzzy Modeling (IRAFM), University of Ostrava and the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC), Czech Technical University in Prague.
"The Institute for Research and Applications of Fuzzy Modeling (IRAFM) was established in September 1996 under the support of the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic as a scientific place of work belonging to the University of Ostrava. IRAFM is one of few research institutes in the world working in the field of Soft Computing and have significantly contributed to the state of the art of such a field, namely to the theory of mathematical fuzzy logic and the related algebraic functions, fuzzy approximation, general theory of fuzzy IF-THEN rules, general theory of linguistic meaning, approximate reasoning, and multi-criteria decision-making. The workers of IRAFM gave lectures in more than 25 countries in Europe, America and Asia. Starting from July 1, 2011, IRAFM has become the Division University of Ostrava of the IT4Innovations."
