    ISIPTA '01


    Cornell University
    Ithaca, NY, USA
    26 - 29 June 2001



    Encouraged by the success of the First International Symposium on
    Imprecise Probabilities and Their Applications (ISIPTA '99, Ghent,
    Belgium, 30 June - 2 July 1999, see the web site for more detailed information; see for an
    electronic version of the proceedings), we have decided to create a
    biennial series of ISIPTA conferences on imprecise probabilities, each
    to take place at a different location.

    The Second International Symposium on Imprecise Probabilities and Their
    Applications (ISIPTA '01), will be held at Cornell University, Ithaca,
    NY, USA, from 26 till 29 June 2001.

    What is imprecise probability?
    Imprecise probability is a generic term for the many mathematical models
    which measure chance or uncertainty without sharp numerical
    probabilities. These models include belief functions, Choquet
    capacities, comparative probability orderings, convex sets of
    probability measures, fuzzy measures, interval-valued probabilities,
    possibility measures, plausibility measures, and upper and lower
    expectations or previsions. Such models are needed in inference problems
    where the relevant information is scarce, vague or conflicting, and in
    decision problems where preferences may also be incomplete. See the IPP
    web site <> for introductory articles about
    imprecise probabilities, an extensive bibliography, and a collection of
    survey articles on special types of imprecise probability models.

    Symposium language
    The working language of the symposium will be English. No simultaneous
    translation in other languages will be available.

    If you are planning to submit a paper or want to participate in the
    symposium, or if you want to receive more information ISIPTA '01, you
    can fill out the electronic preregistration form on the symposium web
    site (

    How to submit a paper
    Papers are encouraged on all aspects of imprecise probability and its
    applications. Those wishing to present a paper at the symposium should
    submit a short paper of 4-10 pages electronically, by 15 January 2001.
    LaTeX and Word style files will be made available on the symposium web
    site ( in the coming days. The
    Program Committee will decide which of these papers are accepted. The
    successful authors will then be invited to submit a final version of
    their paper, for publication in a volume of symposium proceedings (which
    will be available as a published book before the start of the

    Each accepted paper will be given the opportunity for both a brief oral
    presentation as well as a poster session.

    All the papers that are accepted for the symposium will also be made
    available on our web site ( well
    before the symposium. This will allow the participants to study the
    papers in some detail before they are actually presented.

    Symposium web site
    All information relating to the symposium will in due course be
    published on the symposium web site:

    Important dates
    Paper submission deadline: 15 January 2001
    Notification of acceptance: 9 March 2001
