– Rough-set-based feature selection
– Rule-based systems
– Variable precision rough set models

Related Methods And Hybridization:

We cordially invite you to submit the special session and workshop proposals. Proposals can be
submitted by email. Special sessions are supposed to combine rough set methods with other approaches,
while workshops can be devoted to the topics that are totally unrelated to rough sets but remain within
a general scope of artificial intelligence, data mining and uncertainty modeling, from the perspectives of
both theory and applications.
Special sessions will be scheduled on May 18-20, 2024, while workshops can be scheduled on May 17-20.



We cordially invite you to submit the tutorial proposals by email. Any topics related to the theory and applications of artificial intelligence, data mining and uncertainty modeling are relevant. They do not need to be related to rough sets. Tutorials can be attractive for the IJCRS attendees who would like to broaden their interests beyond rough sets. We will also organize a stream of lectures related to the theory and applications of rough set methods.
This stream will be called Rough Set School. It will be designed to provide graduate students and industry practitioners with basic understanding of what the rough sets are and how rough set methods can be utilized. Both Rough Set School lectures and general tutorials will be held on May 17, 2024.



Proceeding approval is pending. Manuscripts are to be submitted in similar formats to previous proceedings at the following link Further details are under preparation and will be announced when available.
