ISIPTA is the primary international forum about theories and applications of imprecise probability. The symposium is open to contributions on all aspects of imprecise probability, which is a generic term for the many mathematical and statistical models and methods that allow us to measure chance or uncertainty without the restriction of sharp probabilities. This includes (but is not limited to) sets of probability measures, partial preference orderings, game-theoretic probability, choice functions, interval probabilities, belief functions, and possibility theory.
The biennial ISIPTA conferences (organized by the The Society for Imprecise Probability: Theories and Applications) are being organized since 1999, and are devoted to presenting and discussing recent advances in this field. The idea of imprecision in probability goes back to Boole in the middle of the nineteenth century. Previously to this conference, it was developed in a scattered way in different fields, including economics, decision making, statistical inference, artificial intelligence, reliability, psychology, and medicine. ISIPTA has served as a forum in which differences and similarities between alternative approaches have been better understood, allowing a more unified development of the theory.
In this edition, we encourage the submission of methodological tools, including software allowing the automation of the process of modelling and reasoning, contributions showing the added value of imprecision in fields where traditionally uncertainty is modelled by probability, as well as applications solving real world problems.
The conference enforces an open environment where interaction and confrontation of ideas are the primary objectives. To achieve this, there will be no parallel sessions, and each accepted paper will be presented both in a plenary session (brief introduction to the main ideas) and in a poster session (for detailed discussion). There will also be the option of presenting ongoing research, preliminary results, or recently published journal papers in a poster, accompanied by a 1-page abstract.

We look forward to see you in Granada next year!
