About WPMSIIP 2013


Sixth Workshop on Principles and Methods of Statistical Inference with Interval Probability

Lugano (Switzerland), 5 - 10 September 2013

The Imprecise Probability Group at IDSIA - the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence, affiliated with both the Department of Innovative Technologies of SUPSI, the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland, and the Faculty of Informatics of the Università della Svizzera Italiana - organizes a workshop on principles and methods of statistical inference with interval (and more generally imprecise) probability. This workshop is a follow-up to five earlier WPMSIIPs held in Durham (2008, 2010), Ljubljana (2011) and Munich (2009, 2012).

Some further information about the WPMSIIP work group is available here.

The workshop will be held in Lugano downtown, in the conference room of the Pestalozzi Hotel. The workshop runs from Thursday the 5th of September until Tuesday the 10th of September 2013. Each of the five workdays of the workshop will start at 9am and will be focused on a specific topic. On Sunday the 8th a walking tour in the mountain area around Lugano is planned. On Monday the 9th the workshop will be hosted by IDSIA in the headquarters of the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Swizerland (SUPSI) in Manno, just a few kilometers away from Lugano.

The major aim of the workshop is to stimulate discussion on ongoing research, therefore especially the afternoons are structured very informally. A preliminary draft of the program is here.

Everyone, including PhD students, is welcome to participate and/or to present their views on one or more of the covered topics, on one or more days! We welcome any stimulating contribution, ranging from a presentation to a short informal statement.

If you want to join the workshop, please contact Alessandro Antonucci (alessandro@idsia.ch).
