Special issue in "Fundamenta Informaticae" on Rough Sets and Fuzzy Sets
Written by Chris Cornelis   

Soon we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Professor Lotfi Zadeh's first publication on fuzzy sets. Rough sets emerged more than 30 years ago as another major mathematical approach for managing uncertainty that arises from inexact, noisy, or incomplete information.
Over the years it was recognized that the two approaches can work nicely as complementary. Many methods based on combination of both approaches were developed, often with a significantly better performance than those obtained by using them separately. The obtained results were published in dedicated books, journal special issues, as well as many regular journal articles and conference papers.
The aim of this special issue is to (i) characterize the state of the art of methods based on combination of fuzzy sets and rough sets, (ii) present new methods based on combination of rough sets and fuzzy sets, (iii) show the future perspectives for such methods, in particular in the face of new challenges emerging nowadays when we are dealing with big data, web of things or cyber-physical systems as well as new computing models. Also papers dedicated to new aspects of comparison of rough sets and fuzzy sets are welcome.

2015 International Joint Conference on Rough Sets (IJCRS 2015) to be held in Jeju Island, Korea
Written by Chris Cornelis   

The 2015 International Joint Conference on Rough Sets (IJCRS 2015) encapsulates the 10th International Conference on Rough Sets and Knowledge Technology (RSKT 2015), the 16th International Conference on Rough Sets, Fuzzy Sets, Data Mining and Granular Computing (RSFDGrC 2015) and the 1st International Conference on Big Data, Applications and Services (BigDAS 2015).

The aim of IJCRS is to present the innovative results, encourage academic and industrial interaction, and promote collaborative research in rough sets technology worldwide. In keeping with the aims of the past conferences, IJCRS 2015 will provide opportunity to explore synergies between rough sets and state-of-the-art knowledge technologies, in terms of both foundations and applications.

Important dates:

1. Paper submission -  April 1, 2015
2. Paper acceptance notification - May 15, 201
3. Camera ready paper submission - July 1, 2015

See also our Upcoming Conferences section for more details.

We look forward to seeing you in Jeju Island!
