[IEEE ICCI*CC'17:] Dr. Lotfi A. Zadeh passed away

Dear Colleague,

I am deeply pathetic to share the sad news that Prof. Lotfi A. Zadeh has passed away on Sept. 6, 2017 in age of 97.

Prof. Zadeh has been our Honorary Chair for the IEEE ICCI*CC Series since 2002. His vision has guided us to build the Cognitive Informatics and Cognitive Computing Community and related research in the last 16 years.

Prof. Zadeh was a giant scientist of the world. His seminal work in logic, fuzzy mathematics, and soft computing, etc., have and will influence many generations of researchers and students. We will remember his pioneer contributions to knowledge forever.

As Stuart Rubin wrote: "I would like to share some words, which I believe he would have shared with you, if I may:

'Though I am bodily gone, I will continue on in your hearts and sole - more fuzzy now than ever so long as you remember me and my work.'

Rest in peace, dear Lotfi.

With our best regards,

Yingxu Wang
