[PVS] 1st CFP: ECSQARU 2009 - 10th European Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative Approaches to Reasoning with Uncertainty



First Call for Papers
Tenth European Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative Approaches to Reasoning with Uncertainty (ECSQARU 2009)
1-3 July 2009, Verona (Italy)



The biannual ECSQARU conferences are a major forum for advances in the theory and practice of reasoning under uncertainty. Contributors are expected to come both from researchers interested in advancing the technology and from practitioners who are using uncertainty techniques in applications. The scope of ECSQARU includes, but is not limited to, fundamental issues, representation, inference, learning, and decision making in qualitative and numeric paradigms.
Previous ECSQARU conferences have been held in Marseille (1991), Granada (1993), Fribourg (1995), Bonn (1997), London (1999), Toulouse (2001), Aalborg (2003), Barcelona (2005) and Hammamet (2007).
The 10th European Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative Approaches to Reasoning with Uncertainty (ECSQARU 2009) will be held in Verona, Italy, on July 1-3, 2009.
