      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  Call for Papers

                                    Special Track
                                         on
        Imprecise and Indeterminate Probabilities in Artificial Intelligence

                                     FLAIRS 2002
                      The 15th International FLAIRS Conference

                                 Pensacola, Florida
                          Crown Plaza Pensacola Grand Hotel
                                   May 16-18, 2002

                              In cooperation with AAAI
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Imprecise and indeterminate probabilities encompass the many mathematical
    models of uncertainty that cannot be given sharp numerical boundaries. This
    arises from information that is scare, vague, inconsistent, or incomplete.
    There is little reason to assume that we can always obtain exact
    point-valued probabilities, especially since we are modelling events that
    are inherently uncertain. Statements such as "the probability of a power
    outage is between 0.3 and 0.5" is more natural and realistic than their
    "exact" counterparts such as "the probability of a power outage is 0.39482."

    Research papers are solicited for the Special Track on Imprecise and
    Indeterminate Probabilities in Artificial Intelligence, as part of the
    FLAIRS-2002 conference. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,

       * Modelling and representation of imprecise and indeterminate
         information, using for instance
            o Belief functions
            o Choquet capacities
            o Comparative probability orderings
            o Convex sets of probability measures
            o Bayes' nets with imprecise probabilities
            o Interval-valued probabilities
            o Upper and lower expectations or previsions
       * Inference and decision making using imprecise and indeterminate
         probabilities
       * Comparative analyses and integration of approaches
       * Extending standard techniques for imprecise and indeterminate
         information

    Paper Submission and Publication
    ---------------------------------
    Full papers of a maximum of 5 pages (AAAI style) will be reviewed.
    Formatting guidelines can be found at
    http://www.aaai.org/Publications/Author/authorinstructions.html

    Electronic submission (postscript or PDF files preferred) should be sent to
    Choh Man Teng at cmteng@ai.uwf.edu. Please also include in a plain text
    message the following information: title, author(s), abstract, and a list of
    keywords.

    If electronic submission is not possible, hardcopies can be snail mailed to

         Choh Man Teng
         Institute for Human and Machine Cognition
         University of West Florida
         40 South Alcaniz Street
         Pensacola FL 32501 USA

    The deadline for submission is October 28, 2001.

    Accepted papers will appear as regular papers in the FLAIRS-2002 conference
    proceedings published by AAAI Press. Selected papers will be considered for
    publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Pattern
    Recognition and Artificial Intelligence.
