##############################
Introduction to GrC2011
##############################


Granular Computing (GrC) is a general computation theory for effectively using granules such as 
classes, clusters, subsets, groups and intervals to build an efficient computational model for 
complex applications with huge amounts of data, information and knowledge. Though the label is 
relatively recent, the basic notions and principles of granular computing, though under different 
names, have appeared in many related fields, such as information hiding in programming, granularity
in artificial intelligence, divide and conquer in theoretical computer science, interval computing,
cluster analysis, fuzzy and rough set theories, neutrosophic computing, quotient space theory, 
belief functions, machine learning, databases, and many others. IEEE GrC 2011 will continue to 
address the issues related to Granular Computing and its applications. IEEE GrC 2011 will provide 
researchers from universities, laboratories and industry to present state-of-the-art research 
results and methodologies in theory and applications of granular computing. The conference will 
also make it possible for researchers and developers to highlight their new research directions 
and new interactions with novel computing models. To broaden more impact on granular computing 
and its applications, IEEE GrC 2011 will focus on currently important major research tracks such 
as neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, rough sets, e-intelligence 
(Web intelligence, semantic Web, Web informatics), bioinformatics, medical informatics, security,
and data mining.
