The BELIEF and SMPS conferences are biennial events concerning the
modeling of uncertainty. The BELIEF conferences are sponsored by the
Belief Functions and Applications Society (BFAS) and are focused on
the theory of belief functions, while the scope of SMPS covers the
application of all approaches to uncertainty (including fuzzy and
rough sets, imprecise probabilities, etc.) to statistics and data
analysis. The co-location of the two events is intended to favor
cross-fertilization among researchers active in both communities.

A single registration will be required to attend the whole event.

Submissions and Proceedings

The proceedings of the BELIEF 2018 and SMPS 2018 conferences will
appear as separate volumes, both published by Springer-Verlag in the
LNCS/LNAI format, indexed by ISI Web of Science; EI Engineering Index;
ACM Digital Library; dblp; Google Scholar; IO-Port; MathSciNet;
Scopus; Zentralblatt MATH.

Two types of paper are accepted:

– Long papers that should be at most 8 pages long and present original
contributions with significant results, or detailed position papers.

– Short papers that should be 4 pages long and present for example
more preliminary works, innovative applications, short position

In addition, we accept abstract-only contributions, that will be
presented as posters during the conference. Note that those
contributions will not be included in the proceedings.
