3rd SIPTA School on Imprecise Probabilities: last announcement

[All our apologies for cross-posting.]

Third school of the Society for Imprecise Probability: Theories and
Applications (SIPTA), July 2-8, 2008, Montpellier, France.

Dear colleagues,

The Society for Imprecise Probability: Theories and Applications (SIPTA)
organizes the 3rd edition of its school in Montpellier, France, during
2-8 July 2008, the local organization being handled by the Laboratoire
d'Informatique de Robotique et de Microelectronique (LIRMM) of the
university of Montpellier. The city of Montpellier is located in the
south of France, on the Mediterranean coast, and the school will be held
at the Centre Regional de Documentation Pedagogique, which is located in
the very centre of Montpellier.

The aim of SIPTA schools is to introduce interested students and
researchers with the basics of imprecise probability topics, both
theoretical and applied. Some of the best specialists in different
aspects of imprecise probabilities lecture, during one week time, on the
main concepts and techniques associated to their area of expertise, in a
friendly environment favouring interactions between participants.

Topics & Lecturers

Imprecise probability is used as a generic term to cover all
mathematical or statistical models which measure chance or
uncertainty without sharp numerical probabilities.
Imprecise probability models are needed in inference problems
where the relevant information is scarce, vague or conflicting,
and in decision problems where preferences may also be incomplete.
The topics covered this year are the following:

- A Unified view of uncertainty theories (Didier Dubois, France)
- Coherent lower previsions (Enrique Miranda, Spain, and Gert De Cooman,
Belgium)
- Credal Networks: Theory and Applications, (Cassio P. de Campos, USA,
and Fabio Cozman, Brazil)
- Algorithms & approximation methods for Imprecise Probability (Fabio
Cozman, Brazil, and Cassio P. de Campos, USA)
- Independence concepts in Imprecise Probability (Fabio Cozman, Brazil)
- Predictive inference: from Bayesian inference to Imprecise Probability
(Jean-Marc Bernard, France)
- Imprecise immediate predictions (Gert De Cooman, Belgium)
- Robust Bayesian Analysis (Fabrizio Ruggeri, Italy)
- Game-theoretic probability and its link with Imprecise Probability
(Glenn Shafer, USA)

The detailed program may be found on the school website.

Pre-registration

The number of participants is limited, and hence is subject to
preliminary acceptance from our side. If you are interested by the SIPTA
school, please inform us of your intention to participate as soon as
possible, by means of a reply to this email, indicating your name,
email, status and affiliation (this can also be done using the
pre-registration form on the school's website). For the acceptance
decision, we will also need (1) a short CV (1 or 2 pages maximum), (2) a
short motivation letter, and (3) an e-mail from your PhD director, or
your laboratory/unit/department director simply indicating that he
supports your request to participate in the school.

More information is available at the school website:

http://www.lirmm.fr/SIPTASchool08/

We are looking forward to meeting you in Montpellier. We also welcome
you to circulate this announcement around you.

Best regards,
