The Seventh Conference on
Information Processing and Management of
Uncertainty in Knowledge-Based Systems

IPMU'98

July 6 - 10, 1998

La Sorbonne, Paris, France

**************

The IPMU Conference is organized every two years with the aim of bringing
together scientists working on various methods for the management of
uncertainty in intelligent systems. This conference provides a medium for
the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners using
different methods to address the important issue of uncertainty.

The 1998 IPMU conference is being held in Paris, a city that provides
many attractions for the visitor. The conference will take place at La
Sorbonne, the oldest University in Paris, founded in 1257, with a long and
prestigous history as an intellectual and academic center in Europe.
This location will provide a very stimulating setting for all the
participants as well as affording a background that helps place the issues
related to uncertainty in an appropriate historical perspective.
