About The Event
Rough Sets were introduced by Zdzisław Pawlak in the early '80s and developed further as a method of knowledge representation and processing based on uncertain data and incomplete information. Nowadays, Rough Set theory is widely recognized to have great importance in several fields, including artificial intelligence, mathematics, knowledge representation and machine learning, as evidenced by the increasing number of works concerned with its applications and theoretical foundations.
The 2024 International Joint Conference on Rough Sets (IJCRS 2024) will take place in Halifax (Canada) from May 17 to May 20, 2024, and will be hosted by the MSc in Computing and Data Analytics (MCDA) program at Saint Mary's University, Halifax. IJCRS is the principal international conference sponsored by the International Rough Set Society (IRSS).
The IJCRS conference aims to be the main location for disseminating novel foundational results and practical applications, enabling the discussion of problems and exchange of ideas, as well as bringing together academic and industrial perspectives, centred around rough sets and related disciplines (such as granular computing, three-way decisions and fuzzy sets).
Our goal is to invite you to IJCRS 2024 and enjoy the beautiful maritime city of Halifax in May!

SPECIAL SESSIONS AND WORKSHOPS
We cordially invite you to submit the special session and workshop proposals. Proposals can be
submitted by email. Special sessions are supposed to combine rough set methods with other approaches,
while workshops can be devoted to the topics that are totally unrelated to rough sets but remain within
a general scope of artificial intelligence, data mining and uncertainty modeling, from the perspectives of
both theory and applications.
Special sessions will be scheduled on May 18-20, 2024, while workshops can be scheduled on May 17-20, 2024.
ROUGH SET SCHOOL AND TUTORIALS
We cordially invite you to submit the tutorial proposals by email. Any topics related to the theory
and applications of artificial intelligence, data mining and uncertainty modeling are relevant. They do not
need to be related to rough sets.
We will also organize a stream of lectures related to the theory and applications of rough set methods. This stream will be called Rough Set School. It will be designed to provide graduate students and industry practitioners with basic understanding of what the rough sets are and how rough set methods can be utilized.
Both Rough Set School lectures and general tutorials will be held on May 17, 2024.
Data Mining Competition
The conference will be hosted at Saint Mary's University, Halifax, NS, Canada.
Nestled in the heart of Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Canada’s east coast, Saint Mary’s University is marked by iconic buildings, green spaces and fresh ocean air. The campus is based in Mi’kma’ki , the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq. Over the last decade Halifax has emerged as one of the most desirable summer and autumn tourist destinations, see novascotia.com
