The theory of belief functions, also referred to as evidence theory or Dempster-Shafer theory, was first introduced by Arthur P. Dempster in the context of statistical inference, and was later developed by Glenn Shafer as a general framework for modelling epistemic uncertainty.
This workshop is dedicated to the confrontation of ideas, the reporting of recent achievements and the presentation of the wide range of applications of this theory.
