The aim of this special session is to present the state-of-the-art results in the area of theory and applications of Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy models, and to get together well-known and potential researchers in this area. Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy models have been known as a universal approximator for nonlinear systems. A number of results on this area have appeared in the literature. They cover modelling of nonlinear systems, both continuous- and discrete-time systems, control and filtering of nonlinear systems with guaranteed cost and/or H infinity specifications, robust control for nonlinear systems with parameter uncertainties, state or input delays systems and so on. The standard theoretical approach to these problems is the well-known Lyapunovfs direct approach. The recent approaches tend to reduce conservatism in sufficient stability and other control design conditions.
