SECOND SUMMER SCHOOL ON ROUGH SETS: Decision Making, Data Mining, Knowledge Representation 


The second Summer School on Rough Sets is collaboratively organized by the Southwest Jiaotong University, the University of Milano Bicocca and the University of Leeds under the patronage of the International Rough Set Society. The school’s aim is to introduce PhD students and researchers at the early stages of their career to the Rough Set field. Rough Sets were introduced in the early ‘80s by Prof. Z. Pawlak to deal with imperfect knowledge. Over the years, the subject has attracted many researchers and practitioners, bringing in great developments both in theory and application. They have found interaction with many other related disciplines. Thus,the school is also of interest to those working in related disciplines, such as Decision Making, Knowledge Representation, Data Mining and Big Data.

The Program focuses on in-depth theory along with practical application in each of the above-mentioned discipline areas. Program methodology is highly participative, encouraging interaction and communication between the participants and the faculty. There will be ample time for discussion and informal meetings for exchange of knowledge and information.

Poster Session

A poster session will be organized where students could present their work in the form of a Poster.


All students will be awarded a certificate of participation, based on minimum 75% of attendance in-class and all other activities associated with the program. Those interested in an official recognition of the ECTS credits should pass an exam, which may be either in the form of poster presentation or a paper submission within a period of 2 months of the completion of the program.
