Mereology is a very plural subject in which individual researchers may
work in multiple potentially incompatible perspectives. It is
well-known that mereological methods are important in AI and
formalizing human reasoning. In particular, these are relevant in
formal approaches to vagueness and point-free reasoning. The main aim
of the symposium session is to connect researchers in formal
approaches to vagueness and ontology from applied mereological
perspectives. All submissions are expected to have a strong focus on
applications or potential applications.

The parthood predicate, that is central to most mereologies, maybe of
a derived or fundamental nature in lower or higher order perspectives
of vagueness. Further, they arise in distinct ways in the application
contexts of general rough sets, granularity, fuzzy sets, spatial
reasoning, point-free approaches and subjective probability. It is of
much interest to study and compare their ontologies from the
perspectives of granular, algebraic and topological semantics in the
context of applications such as knowledge representation, engineering
design, biological taxonomies, robotics and medical diagnosis. Novel
applications in specific domains such as education research or
intelligent n-way decision- making would also be of interest.

The primitive notion of classical geometry is point whereas for
point-free geometry it maybe a region (or other tangible objects).
Related exact and approximate theories are closely connected with the
study of point-free topology or frame theory (and geometric logic).
Applied topics related to point-free geometry, point-free topology,
and geometric logic will also be within the scope of this symposium.

In particular, applications of rough mereotopology, connections with
mathematical morphology and other recent developments in spatial
mereology would be of interest.

Applications of Mereology and Vagueness,
Granular Mereo-Classifiers,

(including tables, figures and references). IEEE style templates are
available here.

Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific
merit and relevance to the workshop. Preprints containing accepted
papers will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the FedCSIS

Only papers presented at the conference will be published in
Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in the IEEEXplore® database.
Conference proceedings will be published in a volume with ISBN, ISSN

indexation in: Thomson Reuters - Conference Proceedings Citation
Index, SciVerse Scopus, Inspec, Index Copernicus, DBLP Computer
Science Bibliography and Google Scholar

Organizers reserve right to move accepted papers between FedCSIS events.

In addition, extended versions of selected papers are likely to be
published in a special issue of Fundamenta Informaticae (under discussion).
