Special Session at IFSA/EUSFLAT 2015

Representing and Managing Vagueness: different scenarios, different tools

http://www.softcomputing.es/ifsa-eusflat2015/

The notion of vagueness has been extensively analysed in the last decades by philosophers, logicians and computer scientists. Here we are interested in the vagueness originated by different characteristics and flaws in information: incompleteness, imprecision, graduality, granularity, contradiction between agents, etc. For each of these aspects one (or more) specific tool has been introduced in literature: fuzzy sets, rough sets, possibility theory, formal concept analysis, interval analysis, etc. Further, when more than one form of vagueness are present at the same time, it seems natural to fuse such tools, as in the fuzzy rough set case. The special session is devoted to collect all contributions that deal with scenarios leading to a form of vagueness and tools to represent and manage it. In particular, all critical discussions, comparisons among two or more forms of vagueness and/or comparisons and fusion of two or more tools are welcome.

The not exhaustive list of topics includes:

-rough sets (classical, probabilistic, game-theoretic, etc…)

-fuzzy rough sets

-interval-valued fuzzy sets

-possibility theory

-supervaluations

-paraconsistent logics

-near sets

-interval analysis

-grey sets

-non-classical logics (many valued, paraconsistent, epistemic,…)

Important Dates

- January 16th, 2015: Full Papers Submission

- March 16th, 2015: Notification of Acceptance

- April 16th, 2015: Submission of Final Papers

Organizers

RST 2014

THE FIFTH ROUGH SET THEORY WORKSHOP

(associated event of RSKT 2014)

*** Abstract Deadline : 31 July 2014 ***

The ROUGH SET THEORY (RST) series of workshops is devoted
to the state-of-the-art and future prospects of rough sets
considered from a theoretical standpoint. ROUGH SETS were
introduced by Zdzisław Pawlak in the early eighties and developed
further as a mathematical method of knowledge representation and
processing/reasoning under uncertain data and incomplete information.
Nowadays, ROUGH SET THEORY is widely recognised to have a great
importance in several fields, such as granular computing, data mining
and approximate reasoning. This is witnessed by the increasing number
of papers concerned with not only applications, but also with
foundations of rough sets and their possible modifications
(hybridisations). Thus the FRONTIERS of ROUGH SET THEORY are
expanded today into many directions.
The leading topic of the fifth RST workshop is:

FRONTIERS IN ROUGH SET THEORY:
FORMS AND INTERPRETATIONS OF CONCEPT APPROXIMATIONS

We would like to start discussion on possible interpretations and
mathematical representations of concept approximations. Thus the main
topic includes, e.g. modal logic interpretations, topological
representations, tripartition of a universe, positive and negative
preferences, and many others.

The fifth RST workshop is a part of the 9th International Conference
on Rough Sets and Knowledge Technology (RSKT 2014), which will be held
from October 24 to October 26, 2014 in Tongji University, Shanghai, China.

Potential authors are cordially invited to submit original,
unpublished papers covering the leading topic. Each paper should have
10–12 pages in the Springer-Verlag LNCS style, including figures,
tables and references. Springer-Verlag author instructions are
available at http://www.springer.com/lncs. All accepted papers will
be published in the main conference proceedings. It is also expected
that one of the authors will present their paper at the workshop.
The authors are invited to submit their full papers via the RSKT 2014
electronic paper submission system. The URL for paper submission
system is: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rskt2014

As in the previous RST workshops, the program committee encourages
also submission of EXTENDED ABSTRACTS. The authors of abstracts are
asked to send their submissions to RST 2014 Chairs:

* Davide Ciucci (University of Milano-Bicocca, email: dvd.ciucci@gmail.com),
* Yanyong Guan (University of Jinan guanyy@ujn.edu.cn),
* Marcin Wolski (Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, email: maarten.wolski@gmail.com).

The authors of accepted abstracts are supposed to give the full-length
talk at the workshop.

Important Dates:

* Full paper submission due: May 10, 2014
* Paper acceptance/rejection notification: June 20, 2014
* Camera ready submission and registration: July 6, 2014
* (Extended) Abstract submission due: June 30, 2014
* Acceptance/rejection notification: July 20, 2014

http://vid.ctb.upm.es/jrs2014

We welcome your participation and contribution to the 2014 Joint Rough Set Symposium (JRS 2014), a joint conference of the 9th International Conference on Rough Sets and Current Trends in Computing (RSCTC 2014) and the 2nd International Conference on Rough Sets and Intelligent Systems Paradigms (RSEISP 2014).

JRS was organized for the first time in 2007 and was re-established in 2012 as the major flagship IRSS-sponsored event gathering different rough-set-related conferences and workshops every year. This year, it will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in rough sets, fuzzy sets, intelligent systems, and complex data analysis. The proceedings will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series, and authors of the best papers will be invited to extend their papers for inclusion in special issues of selected ISI-ranked journals. Author(s) of the best paper will receive an award sponsored by Springer.

The symposium will be held jointly in Granada and Madrid, two prime locations within Spain. Transport between both venues will be arranged by the conference organization.
We look forward to seeing you in Spain!

Special Session on Rough Set Foundations @ JRS’12

JRS12 – Special Session on Rough Set Foundations

Session co-chair: M. Chakraborty, D. Ciucci, T.Y. Lin
Brief Description
Rough Sets play a fundamental role in uncertainty management where available knowledge cannot accurately describe reality. Since their proposal by Z. Pawlak in 1981, they proved their usefulness in several applications. Moreover, links among rough sets and several fields of mathematics have been established. Generalizations are continuously proposed in order to extend the applicability of rough sets and create connections with other paradigms, for instance, fuzzy sets and formal concept analysis.
The present session is aimed to bring together researchers interested in the discussion about foundations of rough sets: the links with other paradigms, what can be included under the umbrella ‘Rough Set Theory’, the mathematics of rough sets and so on.
It follows the session proposed at JRS07 and the Rough Set Theory (RST) workshop series held in Milano (2009, 2011) and Zheijang (2010).

Topics
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• Philosophical aspects of rough set theory
• Rough Sets and Logic (modal, many-valued, algebraic)
• Rough Sets and Mathematics (topology, algebras, mereology, etc.)
• Relationship with other paradigms (formal concept analysis, fuzzy sets, near sets, etc.)

Submission
Submissions will follow standard JRS procedure:
• Each paper should have no more than eight (8) pages in the Springer-Verlag LNCS style, including figures, tables and references.
• Submission is available through the easychair platform
• Deadline is February 15, 2012

Please, while submitting specify that the paper is for the “Rough Set Foundations” session and send a copy of the PDF file also to ciucci@irit.fr

For more information please contact: ciucci@irit.fr

BASIC ISSUES IN ROUGH SETS

Special session at IPMU 2012
July, 9-13, 2012 – Catania

Organizers: Ciucci Davide, Dubois Didier

Rough Sets play a fundamental role in uncertainty management where available knowledge cannot accurately describe reality. Beyond their practical use in different fields, great importance is deserved in literature also to mathematical and philosophical aspects of rough sets. This special session is aimed to bring together researchers that are interested in the basic aspects of rough sets.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

·      Algebraic structures in rough set theory
·      Rough set logics
·      Philosophical aspects of rough set theory
·      Complexity of rough set-related optimization/decision problems
·      Relationship with other paradigms (formal concept analysis, fuzzy sets, ill-known or bipolar sets, near sets…)
·      Topological and modal approach to roughness

Papers  will undergo the normal IPMU reviewing process.
All information about submission and venue can be found on IPMU page.

Important dates:
December 10, 2011: Submission of papers
February 25, 2012: Notification of acceptance
