Ever since EURO (The Association
of European Operational Research Societies) has existed it has provided
an organisational framework for EURO
Working Groups. The corner-stone for both EURO itself and its working
groups was laid in the first EURO Conference in 1975, and the WG on Fuzzy
Sets (together with three other groups) was set up at the same time.
During the First IFSA
Congress (July 1-6, 1985, Palma de Mallorca), with due permission of the
EURO Council, the working group constituted itself as the European Chapter
After some years of little activity of this EWG, especially in comparison
with other EWG's, Bernard
De Baets and János
Fodor were approached by EURO officials asking them to take over
the coordination of this EWG. Thus, the EURO Working Group on Fuzzy Sets
has revived, under the name
At the same time, as IFSA is no longer composed of chapters, EUROFUSE
no longer represents the European Chapter of it.
In 1998, the EUSFLAT society was created and now represents Europe in the IFSA council. Since 1999,
the creation of Working Groups within EUSFLAT is encouraged and EUROFUSE acts as the Working Group on
