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 the Melia Marina Varadero hotel, Varadero, in the province of Matanzas, 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Submissions of original and previously unpublished work on fuzzy and rough set theories and applications are encouraged, including but not limited to the following topics:
This is a tentative version of the conference program for ISFUROS 2017.

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.
