> >
> > The First International Workshop on "Rough Sets: State of the Art
> > and Perspectives" took place in Kiekrz, Poland on September 2-4,
> > 1992. The participants were a true mixture of pure theorists and
> > down-to-earth practitioners. The workshop demonstrated that rough
> > set theory had already far reaching empirical and theoretical
> > consequences. 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), Rough Sets, Fuzzy Sets and Machine Discovery (RSFD'96,
> > Tokyo), and Rough Sets and Soft Computing (RSSC'97, North Carolina)
> > proved the initial trends to be true. They demonstrated increasing
> > world-wide interest not only in the rough sets but also in its
> > connections with other fields and applications to those fields.
> >
> >
> >
> > SUBJECT OF THE WORKSHOP
> >
> > In early eighties, Pawlak introduced the theory of rough sets as
> > an extension of set theory for the study of intelligent systems
> > characterized by insufficient and incomplete information.
> > The successful applications of the rough set model in a variety
> > of problems have amply demonstrated its usefulness and versatility.
> > It also proved to have promising connections and applications to
> > other fields such as Knowledge Discovery, Fuzzy Sets and Machine
> > Discovery, Machine Learning and Soft Computing.
> >
> > The amount of electronic data available is growing at a startling rate,
> > and this explosive growth in data and databases has generated a need for
> > new techniques and tools that can intelligently and automatically extract
> > implicit, previously unknown, hidden and potentially useful information
> > and knowledge from these data. Such tools and techniques are the subject
> > of the field of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) and Data Mining.
> >
> > Granular Computing is a very natural concept, and appears almost everywhere
> > by different names, such as data compression, divide and conquer, chunking,
> > interval computations, neighborhood systems, and rough sets among others,
> > just to name a few. Granular Computing is, as pointed L.A. Zadeh, a
> > superset of the theory of fuzzy information granulation, rough set
> > theory and interval computations, and is a subset of granular mathematics.
> >
> > The main subject of this workshop will be presentation of the most recent
> > research and applications of Rough Sets, Knowledge Discovery in Databases,
> > Data Mining, and Granular Computing.
> >
> > We are especially interested in creating an open forum for discussion
> > of already established and new relationships between between these three
> > domains. We also look for contributions covering related topics.
> > These include neural nets approach and possibly other approaches to
> > discovery of patterns in data, acquisition of control algorithms from
> > data by using data mining techniques, data preprocessing techniques
> > and techniques for approximate representation and reasoning with
> > discovered knowledge.
> >
> >
> > SUBMISSION INFORMATION
> >
> > Please submit approximately one page abstract of your presentation
> > by May 1, 1998 to Yiyu Yao at the above address. The full four-page
> > papers should be submitted by June 1,1998. Paper acceptance/rejection
> > letter will be sent out to authors by August 1,1998.
> >
> > Electronic submission is recommended.
> >
> > The abstracts and the papers will be reviewed by the members of
> > the Program Committee prior to inclusion in the Conference
> > Proceedings.
> >
> > Final, camera-ready four page papers should be sent to P. Wang.
> > For detail information on submission of camera-ready papers,
> > deposit for each paper, early registration discount, and
> > accommodation, please read the enclosed materials of JCIS'98.
