The Seventh International Workshop on Rough Sets, Fuzzy Sets, Data
Mining, and Granular-Soft Computing (RSFDGrC'99) will provide an
international forum for the sharing of original research results and
practical development experiences among experts in these emerging
fields. An important feature of the workshop is to stress the
integration of intelligent information techniques. That is, promoting
deep fusion of these emerging techniques in AI, Soft Computing, and
Database communities for solving real world, large, complex problems
with uncertainty and fuzziness. In particular, fuzzy and rough set
methods in data mining and granular computing. We also look for
contributions in related fields that include, but are not limited to,
the following areas:

- Rough Set Theory and Its Applications
- Fuzzy Set Theory and Its Applications
- Data Mining and Data Warehousing
- Knowledge Creation and Discovery
- Information Granulation and Granular Computing
- Computing with Words
- Machine Learning
- Neural Networks
- Evolutionary Computing
- Probabilistic and Statistical Reasoning
- Approximate Reasoning
- Uncertainty Management
- Non-Classical Logic and Set Theories
- Database Reverse Engineering
- Data and Dimensionality Reduction
- Deep Fusion of Computational and Symbolic Processing
- Intelligent Information Retrieval
- Information Discovery on the Internet
- Decision Support Systems
- Hybrid and Integrated Intelligent Systems
- Intelligent Agent and Multi-Agent Systems
- Soft Computing and Its Applications

Both research and application papers are solicited. All submitted
papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance,
significance, and clarity. Accepted papers will be published in the
conference proceedings by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in
Artificial Intelligence series.
A selected number of RSFDGrC'99 accepted papers will be expanded and
revised for inclusion in ``Knowledge and Information Systems: An
International Journal'' (Springer-Verlag,
http://kais.mines.edu/~kais/), or ``Fundamenta Informaticae'' (IOS
Press, http://alfa.mimuw.edu.pl/FI/).

All submissions should be limited to a maximum of 5000 words. Four
hardcopies should be forwarded to the following address. Please
include a cover page containing the title, authors (names, postal and
email addresses), a 200-word abstract and up to 5 keywords. This
cover page must accompany the paper.

WORKING PRINCIPLES OF THE CONFERENCE:
=====================================

The total number of participants is limited to 60.

CONFERENCE SITE: The workshop will take place at Yamaguchi Resort
Center (Yamaguchi Kousei Nenkin Kyuka Center), Ube, Yamaguchi,
Japan. Yamaguchi which is noted for its natural beauty, is the seat of
the prefectural administration and is a center of education as well
with many historic sites and cultural facilities. Yamaguchi can be
reached by train in six hours from Tokyo, in three hours from Osaka
(Kansai International Airport) and in one hour from Fukuoka. Ube,
which lies 40 km to the southwest of Yamaguchi, is a coastal city with
much industry. It can be reached in 90 minutes by air from Tokyo
(Haneda Airport). Ube and the neighboring areas are expected to
further develop into an industrial conurbation with highly advanced
technology.

CONFERENCE FEE: The early registration fee of 50,000 JYN and 35,000
JYN for students, will include the hotel room charge, breakfasts,
lunches and dinners during the workshop (three days), refreshments in
coffee breaks, and the proceedings.
