For groups of researchers interested in a specific topic related to fuzzy logic, EUSFLAT provides an organizational framework in the form of EUSFLAT Working Groups. They represent the continuity in research in the activities of EUSFLAT. Active working groups have a meeting at least once a year where the members exchange ideas, experiences and research results and support each other in their research work. These meetings can be organized individually or as special sessions at existing conferences.

Propose a EUSFLAT Working Group
At the EUSFLAT Assembly on September 24, 1999, in Palma de Mallorca, a number of working group proposals were presented. Since then, the list of working groups has been extended continuously. In the general assembly on September 13, 2007, another four working groups have been established. Proposals for new working groups can be submitted to the EUSFLAT Board and will be presented for approval at the annual EUSFLAT Assembly. In order to establish a working group, the following information should be provided:
- Name and acronym of the working group
- Coordinator(s) of the working group (and their affiliation)
- Aims and scope of the working group (not more than 20 lines)
- Web page of the working group (if applicable)
- List of members of the working group
- Planned activities
Working group coordinators will be asked to report annually to the responsible representative in the EUSFLAT Board. This report should present the activities of the working group in the past year and the publications resulting from that.
Coordinators of a working group should consider it as a moral obligation to sign up as member of EUSFLAT and should encourage their members, in particular the active ones, to do the same.
Currently, the EUSFLAT Board is examining what additional services it can offer for its members, including modalities for the working groups. Proposals will be presented at the next EUSFLAT Assembly.
