CALL FOR PAPERS: IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing, Oct 22-24, 2014, Noboribetsu, Hokkaido, JAPAN

Granular computing (GrC) is an emerging 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. It concerns the 
processing of complex information entities called information granules, which are collections 
of entities that usually originate at the numeric level and are arranged together due to their 
similarity, functional or physical adjacency, coherency, or the like. Granular computing offers 
a landmark change from the current machine-centric to human-centric approach to information and 
knowledge. The theoretical foundations of granular computing are exceptionally sound and involve 
set theory (interval mathematics), fuzzy sets, rough sets, and random sets linked together in a 
highly comprehensive treatment of this emerging paradigm.

The 2014 IEEE International Conference on Granular Computing (IEEE Grc2014) will continue to 
address the issues related to Granular Computing and its applications. It 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 2014 will focus on currently important major research tracks such as 
software engineering, information security, cloud computing, data intelligence , and bioinformatics.

aspect of Granular Computing.  Topics include but are not limited to:
