2nd International Symposium on Fuzzy and Rough Sets (ISFUROS ’17)
Santa Maria Key, Villa Clara, Cuba
October 24 ? 26, 2017
Organized by: Universidad Central de Las Villas, Cuba
Sponsored by:
International Rough Set Society (IRSS)
Flemish Interuniversity Council (VLIR), Belgium
Aim and Scope
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 hosted 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.
The goals of ISFUROS 2017 are to strengthen the relationships among
researchers and institutions working on fuzzy and rough set theories, to
increase awareness of these topics among the Latin American research
community and to facilitate the contact between new researchers and
consolidated groups.

Conference Proceedings
All accepted papers will be included in the conference 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.

Official Language
ISFUROS' official language is English.
ISFUROS 2017 will be held at the Valentin Perla Blanca Hotel in Santa
Maria Key, located in the central Cuban province of Villa Clara. Santa
Maria key is a tropical paradise 75 km north of Santa Clara city. It
hosts some of the finest Cuban beaches in an environmentally friendly
and utterly relaxing venue.
