ISIPTA 2019: the 11th international symposium on imprecise probabilities

Wednesday, July 3, 2019 (All day) to Saturday, July 6, 2019 (All day)

What if we told you that

“There’s more to uncertainty than probabilities.”

Would you agree? Would you object? Are you intrigued? Regardless of the answer, you have a place at, and are invited to submit a paper to, ISIPTA 2019, the 20-year anniversary edition of the world’s main forum on imprecise probabilities.

Already convinced? Then come to Ghent, Belgium, 3-6 July 2019, and take a look at the following website for any and all details you might require: http://isipta2019.ugent.be.

Not convinced yet? Then perhaps the following features can convince you:

Topic: ISIPTA 2019 is devoted to robustness and imprecision in uncertainty modelling, inference and decision making, focusing in particular on uncertainty frameworks that extend or replace the probabilistic one.

Concept: Each accepted contribution is presented and discussed, in two separate sessions. Presentations are short and plenary. Detailed explanations and discussions are face-to-face, with the aid of a poster, a whiteboard, pen and paper, or whichever medium you prefer.

Atmosphere: ISIPTA conferences are characterised by a friendly and cooperative style, a strong emphasis on in-depth discussion and a true openness to new ideas. We hope that you too will both enjoy and contribute to this unique atmosphere.

Venue: Ghent has been called “Belgium’s best kept secret” by the Lonely Planet travel guide and a “medieval masterpiece” by The Guardian. The conference itself takes place in an old Augustinian monastery, situated in its historic city centre.

Types of contributions: We accept long papers, short papers and poster abstracts. Papers are published in a volume of PMLR, unless explicitly preferred otherwise by their authors.

We look forward to receiving your contribution and/or to seeing you in Ghent!

Sincerely,

The ISIPTA 2019 Steering Committee and PC board
