The Seventh International Workshop on Three-way Decisions, Uncertainty, and Granular Computing

Brief Description

Three-way decisions (3WD) play an essential role in real world decision-making and information processing tasks in many fields, such as medical sciences, business and management science, psychology, cognitive science, computer science, engineering, etc. A theory of three-way decisions, introduced by Yiyu Yao, aims at a unified, discipline-independent framework to study fundamental notions, concepts and applications of decision-making with three options that have been widely used either explicitly or implicitly across many areas. In particular, three-way decisions have been successfully used for interpreting rough set three regions, decision analysis with uncertainty, cluster analysis, information filtering, Web-based support systems, multi-criteria classification and multi-view decision models.

Background

The First International Symposium on Three-way Decisions and Granular Computing (ISTDGC 2013) was successfully held in Chengdu, China in 2013. The Second International Workshop on Three-way Decisions, Uncertainty, and Granular Computing (TWDUG 2014) was successfully held in Shanghai, China in 2014. The Third International Workshop (TWDUG 2015) was held in Tianjin in 2015 at the International Joint Conference on Rough Sets (IJCRS 2015). The fourth International Workshop was held in Santiago de Chile in 2016 at the International Joint Conference on Rough Sets (IJCRS 2016). The fifth International Workshop was held in Olsztyn in 2016 at the International Joint Conference on Rough Sets (IJCRS 2017). The Sixth in International Workshop was held in Quy Nhon in 2018 at the International Joint Conference on Rough Sets (IJCRS 2018). The seventh international workshop will be held in Debrecen, Hungary in 2019 at the International Joint Conference on Rough Sets (IJCRS 2019). In the workshop, we would like to stimulate an intensive discussion on 3WD and to focus on the interaction and integration of three-way decisions, theories of uncertainty and granular computing. We warmly invite you to participate by submitting and presenting original and unpublished research work. The joint effort of the members of the workshop is to evaluate future directions of 3WD.

Generalized Rough Inclusion, Graded Inclusion, Granularity and Related Topics

Aim and Scope

Rough inclusion is a key concept of all mereological approaches to rough sets. They may be realized through rough inclusion functions (RIFs) and variants thereof as in Polkowski-Skowron style rough mereology. The specific approach has also found application in diverse fields such as robotics and linguistics. Other mereological approaches to granular rough sets that do not make use of RIF-like functions are also known; the main argument against their use being that they are intrusive and contaminating in many ways. The concept of graded inclusion is one generalization of the concept of a RIF that has found fruitful application in related areas of computational intelligence. The main aim of this session is to focus on the foundations andtheoretical aspects (especially from a general rough set perspective) of rough inclusion, graded inclusion, RIF-like functions, and related functions. However, papers on applications of the concepts mentioned are also welcome.RIFs, graded inclusion and generalizations thereof are known by many other names in formal approaches to vagueness, belief, and uncertainty. They are also interpreted as functions that model (among others) conditional subjective probability, relative degree of misclassification, vague inclusion, majority inclusion function and inclusion degree. However, bridges between such diverse ontologies have problems of stability and direction. Apart from the aims mentioned earlier, a special aim of the session is to focus on such a state of affairs from a general rough set perspective.The session will feature both invited and contributed talks. Experienced and new researchers working on theoretical or insightful practical applications in related areas are encouraged to submit papers and participate.
