[bull-ia] 5th School on Belief Functions and their Applications, Siena, Italy, October 27-31, 2019

Dear all,


The 5th edition of the School on Belief Functions and their Applications will take place at Certosa di Pontignano, Siena, Tuscany, Italy on October 27-31, 2019. See the school homepage at:


The BELIEF school is a biennial event organized by the Belief Functions and Applications Society (BFAS) that offers a unique opportunity for students and researchers to learn about fundamental and advanced aspects of the theory of belief functions, also referred to as Dempster-Shafer theory, or evidence theory.

The school will be organized around a set of lectures by prominent researchers as well as a tutorial session focused on the practical use and implementation of belief functions. Lectures will gradually tackle basic to more advanced theoretical concepts. They will also highlight the links with other uncertainty theories such as imprecise probabilities, random sets and rough sets, and present some of the belief functions applications in various domains including information fusion, inference and machine learning.
