Fuzzy clustering plays an important role in data-mining, especially in decision making, pattern recognition, etc. There have been many approaches to improve fuzzy clustering performance and quality when it was first introduced by the researcher. Recently, an approach related to data with sub-information has been most concerned. The idea of this approach combines the advantages of fuzzy C-means method with the benefits of additional information so-called the Semi-Supervised Fuzzy Clustering algorithms (SSFC). Through this paper, a series of typical SSFC algorithms are presented in brief to give an overview of this approach.
