This session is organized as a part of

The second  International Computer Engineering Conference:

Engineering the Information Society

 Cairo, EGYPT, December 26-28, 2006

Call for papers

       Rough Set theory was introduced by Z. Pawlak in the early 80's and has reached a level of high visibility and maturity. In recent years, we have witnessed diverse, as well as, widespread research in rough set theory and its applications worldwide. A considerable number of applications of rough sets in medicine, economics, finance, business, environment, electrical and computer engineering,   software engineering, and information science have been introduced in recent years. In addition, many rough set case studies and more than a dozen commercial, as well as, research rough set tools are currently available.

 This special session organized in the framework of the Egyptian rough set working group (ERS). It aims at providing an opportunity for researchers from different disciplines including mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, physics and clinical medicine to present state-of-the-art in rough set theory and its applications.  The special session will be oriented towards both theoretical and applications aspects of rough sets. The issue will also make it possible for researchers and developers to highlight new research directions, new applications, and a growing number of relationships between rough sets and such areas as computational intelligence, knowledge discovery and data mining, intelligent information systems, synthesis and analysis of complex objects and non-conventional models of computation.   

 Topics for the conference may include but are not limited to: 

         Theoretical issues related to:

o        Feature extraction and feature selection

o        Data reduction ( reducts)

o        Decision rules synthesis and tuning

o        Recurrent  processing,

o        Classification and clustering design,

o        Multi-resolution processing,

o        Granular computation,

o        Analysis of time series   and  temporal data processing,

o        Continuous features and feature discretization, 

o        Preserving similarity, and extraction of similarity relation from data,

o        Multi-criteria decision analysis

o         Hybrid and integrated intelligent systems (rough sets, fuzzy sets, Bayesian processing),


o        Image  processing,

o        Computer speech recognition system

o        Modeling,
