ECSQARU 2009, 1-3 July 2009, Verona (Italy)

The biennial ECSQARU conferences are a major forum for advances in the theory and practice of reasoning under uncertainty. Contributors are expected to come both from researchers interested in advancing the technology and from practitioners who are using uncertainty techniques in applications. The scope of ECSQARU includes, but is not limited to, fundamental issues, representation, inference, learning, and decision making in qualitative and numeric paradigms.

Previous ECSQARU conferences have been held in Marseille (1991), Granada (1993), Fribourg (1995), Bonn (1997), London (1999), Toulouse (2001), Aalborg (2003), Barcelona (2005) and Hammamet (2007).

The 10th European Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative Approaches to Reasoning with Uncertainty (ECSQARU 2009) will be held in Verona, Italy, on July 1-3, 2009.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Algorithms for uncertain inference
  • Argumentation systems
  • Automated planning & acting
  • Bayesian networks
  • Belief functions
  • Belief revision & inconsistency handling
  • Causal networks
  • Classification & clustering
  • Decision theory and graphs
  • Default reasoning
  • Empirical studies of algorithms
  • Foundations of reasoning and decision
    making under uncertainty
  • Fuzzy sets and Fuzzy Logic
  • Game theoretic agents
  • Implementation and applications of uncertain systems
  • Information fusion
  • Learning for uncertainty formalisms
  • Logics for reasoning under uncertainty
  • Markov decision processes
  • Possibility theory
  • Rough sets
