Topics: algebraic approaches to rough sets, logics of approximate
reasoning, formal approaches to vagueness, constructive algebras of
rough sets

Widespread use of algebraic methods in rough sets goes back to the
very origins of the latter field. The focus of these methods was
algebraic semantics, associated logics and computation. At the turn of
the century as many as a dozen classes of algebraic systems could be
associated with semantics alone. In recent times, many new approaches
to general and hybrid rough sets such as the axiomatic approaches to
granularity, abstract rough sets, use of hypergraphs, newer dualities,
inverse problems, matroids, ideal based rough sets and approaches
based on antichains were developed. These have connections with
algebras and logics of knowledge, Formal Concept Analysis, quantum
logic, formal topology, mereology, spatial mereology and approximate
reasoning. The literature on all these is spread out and a
comprehensive account is missing.

It is known that many of the algorithms used in rough sets are
essentially algebraic in nature. Related expositions are not
particularly in line with the literature on constructive algebras.
Submissions that add to this aspect will also be welcomed.

The goal of the project is to bridge gaps, provide a detailed resource
on the topics mentioned, provide stronger research directions and
connect algebraic approaches to rough sets with those for other forms
of approximate reasoning. The book would be useful for researchers and
teachers in rough sets, algebra, lattice theory, non classical logic,
fuzzy sets, Possibility theory, FCA, computational learning theory and
other formal approaches to vagueness and approximate reasoning.

Prospective authors must submit 1-2 page abstracts as soon as
possible to speed up decision making on the proposal(s). Full
manuscripts will be refereed by three referees. Improved versions will
be refereed again if deemed necessary.

Submission Guidelines

All Submissions must be original and not simultaneously submitted to
another journal or conference. Authors should try and target a larger
audience outside their sub-specialization. Submissions in the
following categories are particularly welcome:

Detailed Research Expositions
Research Surveys
Research Expositions including New Results (previously unpublished)

Initially long abstracts (2-3 pages in length) of proposed chapter
should be submitted through the easy chair system for approval by the
editorial team.
