IMPRECISE PROBABILITIES AND THEIR APPLICATIONS
Ithaca, NY, USA
26 - 29 June 2001
CALL FOR PAPERS
Encouraged by the success of the First
International Symposium on Imprecise Probabilities and Their Applications
(ISIPTA '99, Ghent, Belgium, 30 June - 2 July 1999), we have decided to
create a biennial series of ISIPTA conferences on imprecise probabilities,
each to take place at a different location.
The Second International Symposium on Imprecise
Probabilities and Their Applications (ISIPTA '01), will be held at Cornell
University, Ithaca, NY, USA, from 26 till 29 June 2001.
What is imprecise probability?
Imprecise probability is a generic term for
the many mathematical models which measure chance or uncertainty without
sharp numerical probabilities. These models include belief functions, Choquet
capacities, comparative probability orderings, convex sets of probability
measures, fuzzy measures, interval-valued probabilities, possibility measures,
plausibility measures, and upper and lower expectations or previsions.
Such models are needed in inference problems where the relevant information
is scarce, vague or conflicting, and in decision problems where preferences
may also be incomplete.
See the IPP web site
for introductory articles about imprecise probabilities, an extensive bibliography,
and a collection of survey articles on special types of imprecise probability
The working language of the symposium will
be English. No simultaneous translation in other languages will be available.
How to submit a paper
Papers are encouraged on all aspects of imprecise
probability and its applications. Those wishing to present a paper at the
symposium should submit a short paper of 4-10 pages electronically, .
LaTeX and Word style files will be made
available on this web site well before the submission deadline. See the
page HOW TO SUBMIT A PAPER for more information.
Committee will decide which of these papers are accepted. The successful
authors will then be invited to submit a final version of their paper,
for publication in a volume of symposium proceedings (which will be available
for the symposium).
Each accepted paper will be given the opportunity
for both a brief oral presentation as well as a poster session.
All the papers that are accepted for the
symposium will also be made available on this web site our web site well
before the conference. This will allow the participants to study the papers
in some detail before they are actually presented.
If you have any questions about the symposium,
please contact the Organising Committee.
