Aim and Scope

The major aim of the RSKT 2011 is to present the innovative results, encourage academic and industrial interaction, and promote scientific collaborative in rough sets and knowledge technology worldwide. Rough Sets and Knowledge Technology (RSKT) is the sixth conference in a series of international scientific meetings spanning over the last five years. In keeping with the aims of the past conferences, this conference provides opportunity to explore synergies between rough sets and state-of-the art knowledge technologies, in terms of both foundations and applications.

Paper Submission

Both research and application papers are solicited. All submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity. Each paper should have no more than ten (10) pages in the Springer-Verlag LNCS style, including figures, tables and references. Springer-Verlag author instructions are available at: Please submit your paper in PDF format by May 10, 2011 via our electronic paper submission system. The URL for paper submission system is
