4th International Symposium on Rough Sets: Theory and Applications (RSTA'22)

Sofia, Bulgaria, 4 - 7 September, 2022


The RSTA symposium is devoted to the state-of-the-art and future perspectives of rough sets considered from both a theoretical standpoint and real-world applications. Rough set theory is a highly developed discipline with a large number of mechanisms potentially useful in intelligent data analysis. In our special session, we aim to invite deep research papers that address the practical problem of modeling artificial intelligence processes using techniques derived from rough sets. We also encourage scientists from other research fields to participate to initiate discussions and collaborations on other methods of data exploration and approximate computations.


The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Algebraic Logic
  • Logics from Rough Sets
  • Approximate Reasoning
  • Clustering and Rough Sets
  • Dominance-based rough sets
  • Distributed Cognition
  • Granular Computing
  • Rough mereology
  • Near sets and Proximity
  • Fuzzy-rough hybrid methods
  • Hybrid techniques
  • Rough neural computing
  • Evolutionary computation and rough set
  • Image and Video Processing
  • Rough Sets in Education Research
  • Knowledge discovery from Databases
  • Missing values
  • Big data
  • Bio-informatics
  • Three-Way Decision Making
  • Data security
  • Intelligent Robotics
  • Knowledge engineering
  • Multimedia applications
  • AHP and Decision Making
  • Assistive technology and adaptive sensing systems
