    *Aims and scope*

    XAI lies at the intersection of different fields, which include, let
    alone Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive and Social Sciences, Human
    Computer Interaction, Philosophy and Psychology among others. The strong multidisciplinary character of XAI is due to the centrality of people in
    all aspects of the development and deployment of XAI systems. People
    have an exceptional ability to manage the complexity of phenomena
    through mental processes such as organization, granulation and
    causation. A key factor is the capability of managing imprecision in
    forms that are well captured by several theories within the Granular
    Computing paradigm, such as Fuzzy Set Theory, Rough Set Theory, Interval Computing and hybrid theories among others. Endowing XAI systems with
    the ability of dealing with the many forms of imprecision, not only in
    the inference processes that lead to automated decisions, but also in
    providing explanations, is a key challenge that can push forward current
    XAI technologies towards more trustworthy systems and full collaborative intelligence.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    - Foundational and philosophical aspects of imprecision in information
    and knowledge
    - Theoretical advancements in imprecision modeling in AI
    - Imprecision modeling methods to improve explainability in AI
    New technologies for representing and processing imprecision in
    XAI systems
    - Real-world applications and case studies that demonstrate
    explainability improvements through imprecision management

    *Submission guidelines and review process*

    Papers must be submitted according to the standard procedure of
    Information Sciences, selecting the S.I. "Managing imprecision and
    uncertainty in XAI systems”. All submitted papers should report
    original work and provide meaningful contributions to the current state
    of the art.

    Each submitted paper will undergo a first screening by the Guest
    Editors. If the submission falls within the scope of the SI, it will
    undergo a regular revision process. Acceptance criteria are the same of
    regular issues of the journal.

    *Important dates*

    - Submission start: November 1st, 2021
    - Paper submission deadline: January 28th, 2022
    - Notification of first-round review results: July 15th, 2022
    - Tentative period for final publication: Fall 2022
