    Call for Papers

    Granular computing is an emerging interdisciplinary study of of problem solving and information processing through multiple levels of granularity.
    The workshop,

    Advances in Granular Computing, 2011,

    aims at bringing researchers and practitioners from many wide spectrum of disciplines and research areas to exchange latest ideas and to envision the future of granular computing. As part of the Sixth International Conference Rough Sets and Knowledge Technology (RSKT 2011), participants of the workshop have an excellent opportunity to interact with other researchers in rough set theory and knowledge technology.
    Both research and application papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following the topics:

  • Cognitive and psychological foundations of granular computing,
  • Mathematical foundations of granular computing,
  • Philosophical foundations of granular computing,

  • Algorithms of granular computing,
  • Applications of granular computing,
  • Methodology of granular computing,
  • Models of granular computing,
  • Modes of granular computing,
  • Systems of granular computing,

  • Granular computing and artificial intelligence,
  • Granular computing and cluster analysis,
  • Granular computing and fuzzy sets,
  • Granular computing and knowledge discovery and data mining,
  • Granular computing and imprecise probability,
  • Granular computing and interval computing,
  • Granular computing and machine learning,
  • Granular computing and multiscale analysis,
  • Granular computing and problem solving,
  • Granular computing and rough sets,

  • Granular information processing,
  • Granular problem solving,
  • Granular thinking,
  • Uncertainty and granular computing,
  • Uncertainty measures and granularity

    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:
