Rough Set Theory, proposed first by Zdzislaw Pawlak in the early 80's,
has reached a maturity stage. In recent years we have witnessed a
rapid growth of interest in rough set theory and its applications,
worldwide. Various real life applications of rough sets have shown
their usefulness in many domains. It is felt useful to sum up the
present state of rough set theory and its applications, outline new
areas of development and, last but not least, to work out further
relationships with such areas as soft computing, knowledge discovery
and data mining, intelligent information systems, synthesis and
analysis of complex objects and non-conventional models of
computation. The First International Conference on Rough Sets and
Current Trends in Computing (RSCTC'98) was held successfully in Poland
in 1998. RSCTC'2000 will be the second conference of this kind. Both
RSCTC'98 and RSCTC'2000 grew out of a series of annual International
Workshops devoted to the subject of rough sets held alternatively in
Canada, Japan, Poland and USA. The aim of RSCTC'2000 is to bring
together researchers from diverse fields of expertise in order to
facilitate mutual understanding and cooperation and to help in
cooperative work aimed at new hybrid paradigms.

The conference is devoted to the following topics:

Rough Set Theory and Applications
Fuzzy Set Theory and Applications
Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
Machine Learning
Computing with Words
Granular Computing
Neural Networks
Evolutionary Computing
Petri Nets and Concurrency
Pattern Recognition and Image Processing
Non-Classical Logic
Approximate and Uncertain Reasoning
Statistical Inference
Spatial Reasoning
Logical Aspects of Soft Computing
Complexity Aspects of Soft Computing
Applications of Soft Computing
Decision Support Systems
Multi-Agent Systems
Hybrid and Integrated Intelligent Systems
