IPMU2000
--------

The 8th International Conference on
Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty
in Knowledge-Based Systems

July 3 - 7, 2000
Madrid, Spain
http://www.mat.upm.es/ipmu
e-mail: ipmu@mat.upm.es

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.

LOCATION
--------
Madrid, a world-famous city where Nobody is a foreigner. The capital has

always known how to be nice and amiable. Its forcefulness and
personality turns Madrid into an unforgettable city, and its plentiful
resources of interest to tourism -nature, art, history- are rounded off
extraordinarily well by a series of cities in its surroundings which are

full of sights of historic interest, some of which have been included by

the UNESCO in the list of places considered "world heritage": Avila,
Segovia, Toledo, as well as the Monastery of El Escorial or Alcala de
Henares.

Madrid has admirable parks and gardens, and a large number of museums,
including those in the Avenue of Art, an itinerary unique in the entire
world, which includes painting, sculpture, architecture and natural
beauty, set in one of the most emblematic areas of Madrid; The Paseo del

Prado. It includes three of the most important museums of Spain; the
Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Centro de Arte Reina

Sofia.

The cultural panorama of Madrid is marked today by a large number of
public and private cultural institutions, banks and savings banks,
universities and student residences that compete in converting the
cultural spirit of Madrid into a reality that is tangible as well as
multifarious.
