SS No. 3

Title: Fuzzy and Rough Sets Theory, and Their Applications
Topic of interest: It is well-known that fuzzy set theory plays an important role in soft computing and it is applying widely to knowledge engineering, artificial engineering, and pattern recognition etc. Further, rough set theory is also studied widely for many researchers and it is applying to many engineering fields such as decision making, data analysis, and KANSEI engineering etc. In this special session, we will discuss a recent trend on fuzzy theory and rough set theory and their applications.
