This volume contains the papers selected for presentation at the 11th Int- national Conference on Rough Sets, Fuzzy Sets, Data Mining, and Granular Computing (RSFDGrC 2007), a part of the Joint Rough Set Symposium (JRS 2007) organized by Infobright Inc. and York University. JRS 2007 was held for the ?rst time during May 14-16, 2007 in MaRS Discovery District, Toronto, Canada. It consisted of two conferences: RSFDGrC 2007 and the Second Int- national Conference on Rough Sets and Knowledge Technology (RSKT 2007). The two conferences that constituted JRS 2007 investigated rough sets as an emerging methodology established more than 25 years ago by Zdzis law Pawlak. Roughsettheoryhasbecomeanintegralpartofdiversehybridresearchstreams. In keeping with this trend, JRS 2007 encompassed rough and fuzzy sets, kno- edgetechnologyanddiscovery,softandgranularcomputing,dataprocessingand mining, while maintaining an emphasis on foundations and applications. RSFDGrC 2007 followed in the footsteps of well-established international initiatives devoted to the dissemination of rough sets research, held so far in Canada, China, Japan, Poland, Sweden, and the USA. RSFDGrC was ?rst - ganized as the 7th International Workshop on Rough Sets, Data Mining and Granular Computing held in Yamaguchi, Japan in 1999. Its key feature was to stress the role of integrating intelligent information methods to solve real-world, large, complex problems concerned with uncertainty and fuzziness. RSFDGrC achieved the status of a bi-annual international conference, starting from 2003 in Chongqing, China.
