[bull-ia] ECSQARU 2019 (September 18-20, Belgrade, Serbia)



Fifteenth European Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative
Approaches to Reasoning with Uncertainty


September 18-20, 2019
Belgrade (Serbia)

Invited Speakers:
Fabio Gagliardi Cozman, University of Sao Paulo
Lluís Godo, Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA), CSIC
Francesca Toni, Imperial College London


The biennial ECSQARU conferences constitute a major forum for advances
in the theory and practice of reasoning under uncertainty,
with a focus on bringing symbolic and quantitative aspects together.
Contributions come from researchers interested in advancing the
scientific knowledge and from practitioners using uncertainty
techniques in real-world applications. The scope of the ECSQARU
conferences encompasses fundamental issues, representation, inference,
learning, and decision making in qualitative and numeric uncertainty

Previous ECSQARU events have been held in Marseille (1991), Granada
(1993), Fribourg (1995), Bonn (1997), London (1999), Toulouse (2001),
Aalborg (2003), Barcelona (2005), Hammamet (2007), Verona (2009),
Belfast (2011), Utrecht (2013), Compiègne (2015), and Lugano (2017).

::: SCOPE :::

For ECSQARU 2019 we invite submissions of original papers on topics
which include but are not limited to:

– Algorithms for uncertain inference
– Applications of uncertain systems
– Argumentation systems
– Automated planning and acting under uncertainty
– Belief functions
– Belief change & merging
– Classification & clustering
– Decision theory & decision graphs
– Default reasoning
– Description logics with uncertainty
– Foundations of reasoning under uncertainty
– Fuzzy sets & fuzzy logic
– Game theory
– Hybrid reasoning
– Imprecise probabilities
– Inconsistency handling
– Information fusion – Learning for uncertainty formalisms
– Learning for uncertainty formalisms
– Logics for reasoning under uncertainty
– Markov decision processes
– Possibility theory & possibilistic logic
– Preferences
– Probabilistic graphical models
– Probabilistic logics
– Qualitative uncertainty models
– Rough sets
– Uncertainty & data


In accordance with the previous conferences, the proceedings of
ECSQARU 2019 will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in
Artificial Intelligence series. In addition to that, extended versions
of selected papers will be published in a special issue of the
International Journal of Approximate Reasoning.


Authors are requested to prepare their conference papers in the
LNCS/LNAI format.
Submitted papers must be original and not under review in a journal
or another venue with formally published proceedings. They will be evaluated
by peer reviews based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and
clarity of exposition. Reviewing will be double-blind, so names of authors
and affiliations must be omitted from the paper. Authors of accepted papers
are expected to attend the conference to present their work, at least one author
of each paper must register for the conference.

Submitted papers must be at most 10 pages (excluding references) in the
Springer LNCS/LNAI format. Submissions will be through EasyChair:
