  We would like to congratulate Dr. Miguel Argaez and Dr. Martine Ceberio on receiving the Outstanding Paper Award at the 35th Annual Conference of the North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society for their paper entitled,”A model reduction for highly non-linear problems using wavelets and Gauss-Newton method.”

Graph Generation for Fun and Profit


Abstract: Creating random graphs with a given degree sequence has applications from modelling networks to counting classes of graphs.  We will consider how these random graphs can be created and examine the drawbacks to the current algorithms.  Then, we will see where the inherent difficulty comes from in creating these random graphs. Finally, we will […]

UTEP Computer Science Professor Named VP of NAFIPS


Associate Professor of Computer Science Martine Ceberio, Ph.D., has been elected vice president of the North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society (NAFIPS). Fuzzy information processing is a way to model uncertainty in reasoning, offering ways to handle information when measurements or statements are not fully exact in order to help decision-making in computer science be […]
