We welcome your contribution to the 2014 Joint Rough Set Symposium (JRS 2014), a joint conference of the 9th International Conference on Rough Sets and Current Trends in Computing (RSCTC 2014) and the 2nd International Conference on Rough Sets and Intelligent Systems Paradigms (RSEISP 2014).

JRS was organized for the first time in 2007 and was re-established in 2012 as the major flagship IRSS-sponsored event gathering different rough-set-related conferences and workshops every year. This year, it will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in rough sets, fuzzy sets, intelligent systems, and complex data analysis.

All accepted JRS2014 (RSCTC2014 and RSEISP2014) papers submitted either to regular sessions or to special sessions will be published in Springer's proceedings in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/LNAI) Series, and authors of best papers will be invited to extend their papers for inclusion in special issues of selected ISI-ranked journals. Author(s) of the best paper will receive an award sponsored by Springer.

The symposium will be held jointly in Granada and Madrid, two prime locations within Spain. Transport between both venues will be arranged by the conference organization.

We look forward to seeing you in Spain!
