> CALL FOR PAPERS
>
> Rough sets and fuzzy sets are complementary generalizations of classical
> sets. Fuzzy sets allow partial set memberships to handle vagueness, while
> rough sets allow multiple set memberships to deal with indiscernibility.
> These two approaches to generalized sets form a beginning of a "soft
> mathematics" and provide a basis for "soft computing", which includes, along
> with rough sets, at least fuzzy logic, neural networks, probabilistic
> reasoning, belief networks, learning, connectionist computing, genetic
> algorithms, and chaos theory.
>
> This workshop will allow researchers to exchange their differing views of
> soft computing and the application of soft mathematics to the handling of
> uncertainty. This exchange should lead to mutually beneficial co-operation.

> HISTORY
>
> The First International Workshop on "Rough Sets: State of the Art
> and Perspectives" took place in Kiekrz, Poland on September 2-4,
> 1992. The workshop demonstrated that rough set theory seems to have
> far reaching consequences both in theoretical and empirical sciences.
> The participants were a true mixture of pure theorists and down-to-
> earth practitioners. The "Second International Workshop on Rough Sets
> and Knowledge Discovery" (RSKD'93) was held in Banff, Canada in October
> 12-15, 1993. Successive workshops: Rough Sets and Soft Computing
> (RSSC'94, San Jose), Rough Set Theory (RST'95, North Carolina), and
> Rough Sets, Fuzzy Sets and Machine Discovery (RSFD'96, Tokyo) show
> increasing world-wide interest in rough set theory.

> The Joint Conferences publishes three or four proceedings on summaries
> which consists of all papers accepted by all respective program committees.
> The JCIS Proceedings will be made available on March 1, 1997, for all three
> conferences & three workshops depending upon the total number of pages for
> each conference or workshop.
>
> A summary shall not exceed 4 pages of 10-point font, double-column,
> single-spaced text, (1 page minimum) with figures and tables included. Any
> summary exceeding 4 pages will be charged $50 per additional page. Three
> copies of the summary are required by Dec. 15, 1996. A deposit of $150 check
> must be included to guarantee the publication of your 4 pages summary in the
> Proceedings. The absolute deadline for the deposit is Jan. 15, 1997. For
> multiple papers author, the following deposit schedule will be observed: one
> paper, $150; two papers, $200; three papers, $250; etc., with $50 increment
> thereafter. The $150 deposit (one paper) can be deducted from registration fee
> later. There is no deduction for student registration. It is very important
> to mark FT & T'97, or CS & I'97, or CI & N'97, or RSSC'97, or SCS'97, or GA'97
> on your manuscript (only one of six can be chosen). The conference will make
> the choice for you if you forget to do so. Final version of the full length
> paper must be reviewed for possible publication in one of the three
> INFORMATION SCIENCE JOURALS or deluxe professional hard cover books. Several
> special issues will be published in the journal. The number of the special
> issues will depend upon the quality of papers submitted, the availability of
> guest editors, the interest of research community in a particular topic and
> the budget of the publishers. Four (4) copies of the full length paper shall
> be prepared according to the ``information for Authors'' appearing at the back
> cover of Information Sciences, an International Journal (Elsevier Publishing
> Co.). A full paper shall not exceed 20 pages including figures and tables. All
> full length papers will be reviewed by experts in their respective fields.
> All fully registered conference attendees will receive a copy of proceeding
> (summary) of his/her chosen conference or workshop on March 1, 1997. Lastly,
> attendees will have the opportunity to purchase any or all of Vol.I, Vol.II
> and Vol.III of ``Advances in Fuzzy Theory & Technology'' as well as Vol. IV
> ``Advances in Information Sciences''. These are hard-covered, deluxe,

> II. TUTORIALS
>
> Several mini-courses are scheduled on march 1, 1997. Please take note that
