[ECSQARU 2017] Last Call for Papers (deadline extended to March 20)
The 14th European Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative Approaches to Reasoning with Uncertainty (ECSQARU 2017) will be held in Lugano (Switzerland), on July 10-14, 2017, jointly with the 10th International Symposium on Imprecise Probability: Theories and Applications (ISIPTA ’17).
Possible topics include, but are not limited to: algorithms for uncertain inference, argumentation systems, automated planning and acting, Bayesian networks and causal networks, belief functions, belief revision and merging, classification and clustering, decision theory and graphs, default reasoning, description logics with uncertainty, empirical studies of algorithms, foundations of reasoning, fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic, game theoretic agents, implementation and applications of uncertain systems, imprecise probabilities, inconsistency handling, information fusion, learning for uncertainty formalisms, logics for reasoning under uncertainty, Markov decision processes, probabilistic logics, possibility theory and possibilistic logic, preferences, rough sets, semantic web and uncertainty, uncertainty in databases, uncertainty & data integration, uncertainty and data mining, decision making under uncertainty.
We invite submissions for long (up to 10 pages) and short papers (up to 6 pages).
Papers must be submitted electronically through Easychair. http://www2.idsia.ch/cms/isipta-ecsqaru/
All accepted papers (long or short) will be published electronically in the Springer Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence subseries (LNCS series). Each submission will be reviewed by peers using a single-blind process. All accepted papers will be presented at the conference. At least one of the paper’s authors should register and attend the conference to present the work.
After the conference, a special issue with a selection of the accepted papers will be published in an expanded version in the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning.
We also invite applications for the Springer Young Researcher Award. The prize, granted by Springer, will be awarded to one young researcher for excellent research in fields related to the ECSQARU scope. The award is open to Master students, PhD students and young post-doc researchers who have received their PhD in 2016 (or 2017). Applicants should have submitted a paper (not necessarily as first authors) to ECSQARU 2017. Applications should be received by the paper submission deadline.
Invited speakers will be: Leila Amgoud, Alessio Benavoli, Jim Berger, Didier Dubois, and Eyke Hüllermeier.
