IJCRS'2018 International Joint Conference on Rough Sets


International Joint Conference on Rough Sets


20-24, August, 2018
ICISE - International Centre for
Interdisciplinary Science & Education,
Quy nhon, Vietnam





IJCRS is the prime international conference sponsored by the International Rough Set Society (IRSS). IJCRS 2018 encapsulates four main tracks which refer to major threads of rough set conferences held so far:

Rough Sets and Data Science
(in relation to RSCTC series organized since 1998)

Rough Sets and Granular Computing
(in relation to RSFDGrC series organized since 1999)

Rough Sets and Knowledge Technology
(in relation to RSKT series organized since 2006)

Rough Sets and Intelligent Systems
(in relation to RSEISP series organized since 2007)



Paper submission


The authors are cordially invited either to submit regular research papers (10-15 pages long) or short papers (6 up to 8 pages long) formatted in Springer llncs style. Each paper will be reviewed by three reviewers, members of the Program Committee, and accepted papers will be published in Springer’s LNAI series of Proceedings, indexed in Web of Science.

The authors of best papers will be invited to extend and submit them to selected international scientific journals.



Important dates


Regular paper submission deadline: March 10, 2018;

Short paper submission deadline: April 1, 2018;

Acceptance Notification: May 6, 2018;

Final Version submission deadline: May 20, 2018;




The objective of the conference is to investigate rough set theory as receiving increasing attention in varied hybrid approaches in different practical fields, with a special emphasis on fostering interaction between academia and industry. Topics may include but are not limited to:


Core Rough Set Models and Methods:

  • Covering/Neighborhood-Based Rough Set Models,
  • Decision-Theoretic Rough Set and Dominance-Based Rough Set Methods,
  • Rough-Bayesian Models, Rough Clustering, Rough Computing, Rough Mereology,
  • Rough-Set-Based Feature Selection,
  • Rule-Based Systems,
  • Game-Theoretic Rough Set Methods,
  • Variable Consistency / Precision Rough Sets.
