Third International Workshop on ROUGH SET THEORY (RST11) PDF Print
Written by William Zhu   

Third International Workshop on

14-16 September 2011, Milano, Italy

The RST workshops are devoted to state-of-the-art scientific results about rough sets from a theoretical standpoint. Great importance is attached to informal discussion among participants. A round table concerning foundational and open problems in rough sets theory is included in each workshop.
The third RST workshop will be held at Milano-Bicocca University, Milano, Italy, September 14-16, 2011. This edition will devote special attention to potential relationships between rough sets, on the one hand, and many-valued logic and belief functions, on the other hand. Therefore, the programme committe especially encourages submissions that focus on such relationships.

The scientific programme will consist of three full-length invited talks, a number of shorter contributed talks, a tutorial, and a round table.

Invited Speakers
Thierry Denoeux
Antonio Di Nola
Ewa Orlowska

Piero Pagliani will give a tutorial on logico-algebraic approaches to rough sets.

Participants interested in delivering a contributed talk should submit an extended abstract (2-4 pages) via the Easy Chair web page at

Important Dates
Deadline for contributions: May 1, 2011
Notification of acceptance: May 20, 2011
Final version: June 15, 2011
