PRESENTATION OF THE CONFERENCE
==========================================================================

Organized at a regular two-year interval, the IPMU International Conference
deals with the difficulties existing in the acquisition, representation,
management and transmission of data in knowledge-based and decision-making
systems. It brings together researches working on various methodologies for
the management of uncertain information and provides a useful exchange
between theorists and practitioners using these different methodologies.

GENERAL INFORMATION
==========================================================================

A lunch service will be available at the Conference place on Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday (the days with afternoon sessions).
The price will be around 2000 pts per day. This service is strongly
recommended, because of the tight conference schedule and the high
temperatures we can have in Granada in July at lunch time. Lunch tickets
will be available on Sunday at registration desk for the 3 days, and on
Monday morning for Tuesday and Wednesday. However we would appreciate very
much if you make a reservation of your lunch tickets in advance, by sending a message to armando@robinson.ugr.es like the following one:

Name: A. Garcia
