    IPMU 2002 The 9th International Conference on Information
    Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge-Based Systems


    July 1 (Monday)- July 5 (Friday), 2002, Annecy, France

     On the shores of the cleanest lake in
     Europe, surrounded by a scenic range of
     mountains, Annecy is a lovely town in the
     northern French Alps, 40 kms away from
     Geneva Airport. The city, with its superbly
     preserved old town and the lake are set in
     a spectacular mountain scenery. The city
     hosts a wide range of festivals throughout
     the year, in various areas such as
     animation films, sports movies, music,
     etc... With easy reach of the town, this
     natural environment offers an unlimited
     range of sporting opportunities on land,
     water, and in the air. Everybody will find
     something special to enjoy in Annecy, it
     has so much to offer!

     Annecy is located at an altitude of 448
     meters. In June, the weather is usually
     very pleasant and average temperatures are
     between 18°C (64°F) and 28°C (82°F).
     Please, bring a raincoat as evening
     thunderstorms are not uncommon.

     The symposium will be held at the Imperial
     Congress Center which is located within
     walking distance of the town center in
     enchanting surroundings by the side of the
     mountain lake of Annecy in the heart of the
     French Alps. The congress center is part of
     the completly refurbished hotel Imperial
     Palace (built in 1913) and was inaugurated
     in 1990. The present building, immediately
     adjacent to the lake, is divided into three
     main areas: the Congress Center, the Hotel
     (4****) and the Casino of the city. The
     magnificent view of the lake and mountains
     fosters a convivial atmosphere. Guests can
     relax (between sessions, of course...) in
     the park or on the terraces facing the

     Congress Center

     The official language of the conference is
     English. There will be no simultaneous

     European Union attendees need an identity
     card or a passport. Other foreign
     participants entering France for business
     must possess a valid passport. Citizens
     from some countries may also require a
     visa. Please consult your travel agency, or
     the local French Consulate/Embassy, or the
     French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

     The IPMU Conference is organized every two years
     with the focus of bringing together scientists
     working on methods for the management of
     uncertainty and aggregation of information in
     intelligent systems. This conference provides a
     medium for the exchange of ideas between
     theoreticians and practitioners in these and
     related areas.

     In 2002, the conference is being held in Annecy, a
     city located in the northern French Alps whose
     enchanting surroundings, by the side of a mountain
     lake, provide many attractions for the visitor.
