Fuzzy and rough set theories stand as two of the most prominent methodologies within the umbrella of Computational Intelligence to handle uncertainty in vague and inconsistent environments. They have enjoyed widespread success in a plethora of real-world application domains and remain at the forefront of numerous theoretical studies to consolidate and augment their well-established properties.
The second edition of the International Symposium on Fuzzy and Rough Sets (ISFUROS 2017) will take place at Valentin Perla Blanca Hotel, Santa Maria Key, in the province of Villa Clara, Cuba from October 24-26, 2017. It will be organized by the Universidad Central de Las Villas. ISFUROS 2017 aims at providing a forum for exchange on fuzzy and rough set theories and their applications. The symposium includes tutorials, invited key lectures and paper presentations.
ISFUROS 2017's goals are (1) to strengthen the relationships among researchers and institutions working on fuzzy and rough set theories, (2) to increase awareness of these topics among the Latin American research community and (3) to facilitate the contact between new researchers and consolidated groups.
Submissions of original and previously unpublished work on fuzzy and rough set theories and applications are encouraged, including but not limited to the following topics:
Paper submission will start on March 1, 2017. Submissions will be done via EasyChair. Please use this link to submit your paper. From the top menu that appears (the black ribbon), choose "Submissions" from the left, then click on "Add a submission" link to the right side of the screen. Click on "Continue" at the bottom of the screen. Finally, please fill out all the necessary information concerning the submission, upload the paper and click on "Submit".
All accepted papers will be included in the UCLV Convention proceedings and will be made available to the conference attendees. The proceedings will have an ISBN and will be produced by UCLV’s publishing house.
After the conference, extended versions of selected papers will be published in a volume of Springer’s "Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing" series.
At least one of the authors must complete the conference registration by the early registration deadline; otherwise, the paper will not be included in the conference program or proceedings.
The venue for the 2nd International Symposium on Fuzzy and Rough Sets (ISFUROS 2017) is the Valentin Perla Blanca Hotel (Five-Star, All-Inclusive) .
Valentin Perla Blanca is an adult-only (18+ years old) luxury resort with more than 1000 yards of fine white sand beaches and crystal clear waters located in Perla Blanca, in the Wildlife Refuge of Santa Maria Key, Cuba.
Designed in contemporary Caribbean style and integrated in an idyllic setting, the hotel has luxurious facilities that include two swimming pool areas, Bali beds, submerged bars and relaxation areas.
