algebraic approaches to rough sets logics of approximate reasoning formal approaches to vagueness constructive algebras of rough sets

CFP for New Multi-Author Volume on "Algebraic Methods in General Rough Sets" in the 'Trends in Mathematics' series of Springer International in 2018.

Widespread use of algebraic methods in rough sets goes back to the very origins of the latter field. The focus of these methods was algebraic semantics,
associated logics and computation. At the turn of the century as many as a dozen classes of algebraic systems could be associated with semantics alone.
In recent times, many new approaches to general and hybrid rough sets such as the axiomatic approaches to granularity, abstract rough sets, use of hypergraphs,
newer dualities, inverse problems, matroids, ideal based rough sets and approaches based on antichains were developed. These have connections with algebras and
logics of knowledge, Formal Concept Analysis, quantum logic, formal topology, mereology, spatial mereology and approximate reasoning. The literature on all these
is spread out and a comprehensive account is missing.

It is known that many of the algorithms used in rough sets are essentially algebraic in nature. Related expositions are not particularly in line with the literature
on constructive algebras. Submissions that add to this aspect will also be welcomed.

The goal of the project is to bridge gaps, provide a detailed resource on the topics mentioned, provide stronger research directions and connect algebraic approaches
to rough sets with those for other forms of approximate reasoning. The book would be useful for researchers and teachers in rough sets, algebra, lattice theory,
non classical logic, fuzzy sets, Possibility theory, FCA, computational learning theory and other formal approaches to vagueness and approximate reasoning.

Prospective authors must submit 2 -3 page abstracts as soon as possible to speed up decision making on the proposal(s). Full manuscripts will be refereed by
three referees. Improved versions will be refereed again if deemed necessary.

All Submissions must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Authors should try and target a larger audience outside their
sub-specialization. Submissions in the following categories are particularly welcome:
- Detailed Research Expositions
- Research Surveys
- Research Expositions including New Results (previously unpublished)

Initially long abstracts (2-3 pages in length) of proposed chapter should be submitted through the easy chair system for approval by the editorial team.  

Topics of interest include (but are not necessarily limited to)

-    Algebraic Semantics of General Rough Sets
-    Algebraic Logics
-    Distributive Modal Logics
