British Fashion Council Spearheads Data Visualization Project Before LFW

LONDON — The British Fashion Council will be putting the spotlight on data — and the social reach of London Fashion Week — via a joint partnership with tech companies including Google and Holition during a five-day showcase that starts on Friday.
The new project, dubbed Blossoming Fashion Conversation, will showcase the number of posts and the reach of a series of LFW-related topics on social media and other digital outlets. Topics will include sustainability, model health, luxury and streetwear climates, designer and production heritage, emerging talent, diversity in the industry and overall innovation.
The data will be collected from keywords and hashtags on social platforms, as well as the British Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar web sites. It will be showcased in the form of a tree with different roots and branches. Each root will represent the reach of LFW-related articles, while the branches will indicate the total number of social media mentions each topic gains during the event. The graphics will be showcased on screens at 180 Strand, the main BFC runway venue.
The aim of the project is to explore new immersive ways of showing fashion. The BFC is also looking to educate the LFW audience, which includes industry members and the public,

Rough Sets, Fuzzy Sets, Data Mining and Granular Computing


Welcome to the 12th International Conference on Rough Sets, Fuzzy Sets, Data Mining and Granular Computing (RSFDGrC 2009), held at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi, India, during December 15-18, 2009. RSFDGrC is a series of conferences spanning over the last 15 years. It investigates the me- ing points among the four major areas outlined in its title. This year, it was co-organized with the Third International Conference on Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence (PReMI 2009), which provided additional means for multi-facetedinteractionofboth scientists andpractitioners. Itwasalsothe core component of this year’s Rough Set Year in India project. However, it remained a fully international event aimed at building bridges between countries. The? rst sectin contains the invited papers and a short report on the abo- mentioned project. Let us note that all the RSFDGrC 2009 plenary speakers, Ivo Düntsch, Zbigniew Suraj, Zhongzhi Shi, Sergei Kuznetsov, Qiang Shen, and Yukio Ohsawa, contributed with the full-length articles in the proceedings. The remaining six sections contain 56 regular papers that were selected out of 130 submissions, each peer-reviewed by three PC members. We thank the authors for their high-quality papers submitted to this volume and regret that many deserving papers could not be accepted because of our urge to maintain strict standards. It is worth mentioning that there was quite a good number of papers on the foundations of rough sets and fuzzy sets, many of them authored byIndianresearchers. ThefuzzysettheoryhasbeenpopularinIndiaforalonger time. Now, we can see the rising interest in the rough set theory.
