The second Summer School on Rough Sets is collaboratively organized by the Southwest
Jiaotong University, the University of Milano Bicocca and the University of
Leeds under the patronage of the International Rough Set Society. 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. Program methodology is highly participative, encouraging interaction
and communication between the participants and the faculty. There will be
