We invite submissions of original and previously unpublished research on Rough Set Theory (RST), Granular Computing(GrC) and applications are encouraged, including but not limited to the following topics:
Submissions of original and previously unpublished work on RST/GrC and applications are encouraged. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Submissions must be prepared in the LCNS/LNAI Springer format and have a maximum of 15 pages. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS/LNAI series, both in print and digital forms. Moreover, short submissions can be submitted (3-6 pages).
Finally, abstracts up to one page can be submitted too. If accepted, the talks related to the abstracts can be presented at the conference but will not be included in the proceedings. A book of abstracts with all abstracts will be published and distributed at the conference.
Each submitted paper will be reviewed by three independent reviewers and the decision on its acceptance will be based on the results of these revisions. All papers should be submitted through EasyChair.

Conferences in the IJCRS series are held annually and comprise four main tracks relating the topic rough sets to other topical paradigms: rough sets and data analysis covered by the RSCTC conference series from 1998, rough sets and granular computing covered by the RSFDGrC conference series since 1999, rough sets and knowledge technology covered by the RSKT conference series since 2006, and rough sets and intelligent systems covered by the RSEISP conference series since 2007. Owing to the gradual emergence of hybrid paradigms involving rough sets, it was deemed necessary to organize Joint Rough Set Symposiums, first in Toronto, Canada, in 2007, followed by Symposiums in Chengdu, China in 2012, Halifax, Canada, 2013, Granada and Madrid, Spain, 2014, Tianjin, China, 2015, where the acronym IJCRS was proposed, continuing with the IJCRS 2016 conference in Santiago de Chile, IJCRS 2017 in Olsztyn, Poland, IJCRS 2018 in Quy Nhon, Vietnam, IJCRS 2019 in Debrecen, Hungary, and IJCRS 2020 in La Habana, Cuba (held online).
