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
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/index.html). 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/).

Please submit Four (4) hardcopies of a paper (a maximum of ten (10)
single-spaced, single-column pages including all figures, tables, and
bibliography) to be received by May 20, 1999. A cover page must
include author(s) full address, email, paper title and a 200 word
abstract, and up to 5 keywords. This cover page must accompany the
paper. In addition, an ASCII version of the cover page must be
submitted electronically to ``zhong@ai.csse.yamaguchi-u.ac.jp'' by May
20, 1999.

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 JPY and 40,000 JPY for students,
will include the hotel room charge, breakfasts, lunches and dinners
during the workshop (three days), refreshments in coffee breaks, and
the proceedings.

30 minutes).

The cost of Kansei Int. Airport to Ogori Station is about 13,000
Japanese yen.

--> Yamaguchi-Ube (Yamaguchi Resort Center) (about 30 minutes).

The cost of Fukuoka Int. Airport to Ogori Station is about 5,000
Japanese yen.

1.5 hours) --> Yamaguchi-Ube (by ANA Airline about 1.5 hours)

The standard cost is about 30,000 Japanese yen.

(4) Tokyo-Narita --> Tokyo Station (by Narita Express about one
hour) --> Ogori Station (by high speed train (Shinkansen) about
5 hours) (the hotel bus picks up you in Ogori) --> Yamaguchi-Ube
(about 30 minutes).

The standard cost is about 30,000 Japanese yen.

(5) Tokyo-Narita --> Tokyo Station (by Narita Express about one
