CALL FOR PAPERS

GRANULAR COMPUTING:
Advances in Fuzzy Sets, Fuzzy Logic and
their Applications to Information/Intelligent Systems

Edited by T.Y. Lin, Y.Y. Yao, L.A. Zadeh
published by the Springer-Verlag group (Physica-Verlag,
Heidelberg and New York)in the series
"Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing"

Please look at http://www.cs.uregina/~yyao/BOOK/grc.htm for
updated information.

In the beginning of 1997, a Special Interest Group on Granular
Computing in Berkeley Initiative in Soft Computing (BISC/SIG GrC)
was established. The home page of BISC/SIG GrC is at
http://www.mathcs.sjsu.edu/GrC/GrC.html. Many researchers have
joined this group. Invited and regular sessions on Granular Computing
and Rough Sets have been successfully held at FUZZ-IEEE'98.
In response to great interests and quick growth of BISC/SIG GrC,
we are planning to edit a book on Granular Computing.

You are invited to contribute a chapter related to granular computing.
Please prepare your manuscript prefereably by LaTex and submit your
paper by December 1, 1998 to T.Y. Lin. The latex style file can be find at:
ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/math/proc/

The idea of granulation can be traced back to Zadeh (1979, Fuzzy Sets
and Information Granularity, in: M. Gupta, R. Ragade, and R. Yager, Eds,
Advances in Fuzzy Set Theory and Applications, North-Holland, Amsterdam,
3-18) and is outlined in Zadeh (1997, Toward a theory of fuzzy information
granulation and its centrality in human reasoning and fuzzy logic,
Fuzzy Sets and Systems, 90, 111-127, 1997). Tentatively, the following
topics will be included:

... granular computing,
... computing with words,
... fuzzy sets and fuzzy logics,
... information/intelligent systems,
... soft computing,
... interval computing,
... rough sets,
... uncertain reasoning,
... uncertainty management.

The above list will be expanded by adding more topics
based on your comments and feedback. If you have any
suggestions and questions, please do not hesitate to
contact us. Looking forward to hearing from you.
