IJCRS 2017




It is intended that IJCRS 2017 follows the track already rutted by RSCTC and JRS conferences which aimed at unification of many facets of Rough Set Theory from theoretical aspects of the rough set idea bordering on theory of concepts and going through algebraic structures, topological structures, logics for uncertain  reasoning, decision algorithms, relations to other theories of vagueness and ambiguity, then to extensions of the rough set idea like granular structures, rough mereology, and to applications of the idea in diverse fields of applied science including hybrid methods like Rough-Fuzzy, Neuro-Rough, Neuro-Rough-Fuzzy computing. IJCRS 2017 will encompass topics spread among four main tracks:

  • Rough Sets and Data Science (in relation to RSCTC series organized since 1998),
  • Rough Sets and Granular Computing (in relation to RSFDGrC series organized since 1999),
  • Rough Sets and Knowledge Technology (in relation to RSKT series organized since 2006),
  • Rough Sets and Intelligent Systems (in relation to RSEISP series organized since 2007).

This will not exclude innovative papers in other areas of Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining, Knowledge Engineering, Pattern Recognition, Medical- and Bio-Informatics, DNA and Membrane Computing, Quantum Computing, Ontology, Semantic Web, Grammar recognition.
