ISIPTA '07

5th International Symposium on Imprecise Probability:

Theories and Applications

Monday 16 to Thursday 19 July 2007

Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics

Prague, Czech Republic

http://www.sipta.org/isipta07

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The ISIPTA meetings are one of the primary international forums to

present and discuss new results on the theories and applications of

imprecise probability.

Imprecise probability is a generic term for the many mathematical or

statistical models which allow us to measure chance or uncertainty

without using 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, upper and

lower expectations or previsions, and sets of desirable gambles.

Imprecise probability models are needed in both inference and decision

problems where the relevant information is scarce, vague or conflicting,

and where preferences may therefore also be incomplete.

Symposium format

----------------

It is a tradition of the ISIPTA meetings that we try to avoid parallel

sessions. Each accepted paper is to be presented both (i) in a plenary

session, where we ask for a short introduction and sketch of the context

and relevance of the paper; and (ii) in a poster session, where ample

opportunity and time is given for detailed explanation and discussion.

The actual symposium will take three days (17-19 July, 2007). It is

preceded by a day devoted to tutorials (16 July 2007).

Themes of the symposium

-----------------------

The symposium is open to contributions on all aspects of imprecise

probability. But we do emphasize a number of themes that will get

special attention: (i) algorithms and real applications, (ii) links

between existing models, and (iii) theoretical results that facilitate

using imprecise probability models in practice.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- models of coherent imprecise assessments

- convex sets of probability measures (credal sets)

- interval-valued probabilities

- upper and lower expectations or previsions

- non-additive set functions, and in particular Choquet capacities (and

Choquet integration), fuzzy measures, possibility measures, belief and

plausibility measures

- random sets

- rough sets

- comparative probability orderings

- qualitative reasoning about uncertainty

- imprecision in utilities and expected utilities

- limit laws for imprecise probabilities

- physical models of imprecise probability

- philosophical foundations for imprecise probabilities

- psychological models for imprecision and indeterminacy in probability

assessments

- elicitation techniques for imprecise probabilities
