The Fourteenth European Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative
Approaches to Reasoning with Uncertainty


The biennial ECSQARU conferences constitute a major forum for advances
in the theory and practice of reasoning under uncertainty.
Contributions come from researchers interested in advancing the
scientific knowledge and from practitioners using uncertainty
techniques in real-world applications. The scope of the ECSQARU
conferences encompasses fundamental issues, representation, inference,
learning, and decision making in qualitative and numeric uncertainty
paradigms. Previous ECSQARU events have been held in Marseille (1991),
Granada (1993), Fribourg (1995), Bonn (1997), London (1999), Toulouse
(2001), Aalborg (2003), Barcelona (2005), Hammamet (2007), Verona
(2009), Belfast (2011), Utrecht (2013), and Compiègne (2015).

ECSQARU 2017 will be co-located with ISIPTA '17, the Tenth
International Symposium on Imprecise Probability: Theories and
Applications. The joint event will be held in Lugano (Switzerland), on
July 10-14, 2017.

::: SCOPE :::

For ECSQARU 2017 we invite submissions of conference papers on topics
which include but are not limited to:

- Algorithms for uncertain inference
- Applications of uncertain systems
- Argumentation systems
- Automated planning and acting under uncertainty
- Belief functions
- Belief revision & merging
- Classification & clustering
- Decision theory & decision graphs
- Default reasoning
- Description logics with uncertainty
- Foundations of reasoning under uncertainty
- Fuzzy sets & fuzzy logic
- Game theory
- Imprecise probabilities
- Inconsistency handling
- Information fusion
- Learning for uncertainty formalisms
- Logics for reasoning under uncertainty
- Markov decision processes
- Possibility theory & possibilistic logic
- Preferences
- Probabilistic graphical models
- Probabilistic logics
- Qualitative uncertainty models
- Rough sets
- Uncertainty & data


We are delighted of having the following invited speakers:

- Leila Amgoud (IRIT, France)
- Alessio Benavoli (IDSIA, Switzerland)
- Jim Berger (Duke University, USA)
- Didier Dubois (IRIT, France)
- Eyke Hüllermeier (Paderborn University, Germany)


In accordance with the previous conferences, the proceedings of
ECSQARU 2015 will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in
Artificial Intelligence series. Authors are requested to prepare their
conference papers in the LNCS/LNAI format. Submitted papers will be
evaluated by peer reviews based on originality, significance,
technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Authors of accepted
papers are expected to attend the conference to present their work.
The instructions for submission and the author kit are available here:


- Tuesday, February 21, 2017: Paper submission deadline
- Tuesday, April 18, 2017: Author notification
- Friday, April 28, 2017: Camera-ready copy due


Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended
version of their work to a special issue of the International Journal
of Approximate Reasoning (IJAR, Elsevier).

We also invite applications for the Springer Young Researcher Award.
The prize, granted by Springer, will be awarded to one young
researcher for excellent research in fields related to the ECSQARU
scope. The award is open to Master students, PhD students and young
post-doc researchers who have received their PhD in 2016 (or 2017).
Applicants should have submitted a paper (not necessarily as first
authors) to ECSQARU 2017. Applications should be received by the paper
submission deadline (February 21, 2017).
