Multi-Resolution and Granular Modelling(MRGM)



    Session overview

      Recent years saw a significant increase of research emphasis on modelling of complex systems at various levels of abstraction. This reflects the natural, human strategy for dealing with complexity, that of gradual simplification of complex problems and deriving approximate models. The research challenge is to identify the appropriate levels of abstraction in any given context and to evaluate the efficiency and accuracy of the models build on such abstractions. This broad approach to systems modelling has led to recent attempts to formalize the balance between accuracy and generality of systems modelling.

      This session will provide a platform for discussion of leading-edge research contributions to multi-resolution and granular modelling of systems. The range of application domains that are relevant to this session includes, but is not limited to:

      • system optimisation, scheduling and resource allocation,
      • modelling of biological and molecular systems,
      • modelling  agroecosystems; linking genetic, physical and human dimensions
      • modelling in business and social sciences,
      • set theoretic research (sets and interval analysis, fuzzy sets, rough sets, shadowed sets),
      • granulation and clustering algorithms,
      • communication between systems described at various levels of granularity,
      • empirical verification of models,

      Within this context we are soliciting both technical papers dealing with specific cases of multi-resolution and granular modelling and the papers addressing strategic vision of the development of modelling paradigms for complex systems.

      Please send an abstract of the proposed contribution to:
