CALL FOR PAPERS: "Integrated Uncertainty in Knowledge Modelling and Decision Making", Oct 28-30, 2011, CHINA

IUKM 2011 (International Symposium), College of Computer Science and Technology, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China



Special session: The Theory of Belief Functions and Its Applications in Multiple Classifier Systems 


Session Organizer: Dr Yaxin Bi and Prof Thierry Denouex



IUKM 2011 Symposium aims to provide a forum for presenting and discussing

theoretical and applied research on integrated uncertainty modelling and

management. The goal is to bring together researchers working on uncertainty

formalisms in information and knowledge systems and to attract researchers

working in engineering and social sciences such as economics, business,

management and environmental sciences who are interested in applying

uncertainty-related tools and techniques to their fields.

The list of possible topics includes (but is not limited to):

+ Theory and Methodology

    - Uncertainty formalisms: Bayesian probability, Dempster-Shafer theory,

imprecise probability, random sets, rough sets, fuzzy sets and

interval-based models, logics for uncertainty reasoning

    - Information fusion and knowledge integration in uncertain environments

    - Decision making under various types of uncertainty

    - Aggregation operators

    - Copulas for dependence modelling

    - Granular and soft computing

+ Application

    - Data mining and knowledge discovery

    - Ontology engineering and Semantic Web

    - Software engineering

    - Medical informatics and bioinformatics

    - Ranking and recommendation systems

    - Kansei engineering and evaluation

    - Engineering  management

    - Supply chain management

    - Management of services

    - Economics and environmental sciences.



The proceedings of IUKM 2011 will be published by Springer-Verlag in its

series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and be available at the

Symposium. Authors are requested to prepare their papers in the Springer

LNAI/LNCS format. Submissions should not exceed 12 pages and must be

submitted as PDF electronically through the conference system.

Please visit the conference website at for details.

A Best Paper Award, sponsored by Elsevier, will be given to author(s) of

IUKM 2011's best paper.

In addition, after the Symposium, the authors of selected papers from

IUKM2011 will be invited to submit an extended version of their work for

possible inclusion in a special issue of International Journal of

Approximate Reasoning (Elsevier).



Deadline for paper submission:                10 May 2011

Notification of acceptance/rejection:        30 July 2011

Final camera-ready:                                30 August 2011

Author registration:                                 30 August 2011

Early registration:                                    10 September 2011

Symposium dates:                                   28 - 30 October 2011
