60 years ago, Claude E. Shannon published the "Mathematical Theory of Communications" and that was a starting point of Information and Communcation theory. 60 years ago, Norbert Wiener published his "Cybernetics" and that was a starting event rating point of Information and Communication Theory, too.

Both developments were forerunners to Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Computational Intelligence, and they were very important in the history of the Theory of Fuzzy Sets and Systems and for the Area of Soft Computing / Computational Intelligence.

The proposed special session will discuss historical, philosophical, and sociological points in that area.
