The first Summer School by University of Milano-Bicocca on Rough Sets is organized in collaboration with the International Rough Set Society, in particular with the Task Group on Education. 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. Faculty is international, who are renowned researchers and scholars on different aspects of rough sets.
Program methodology is highly participative, encouraging interaction and communication between the participants and the faculty. There’ll be ample time for discussion and informal meetings for exchange of knowledge and information
