The 4th workshop on principles and methods of statistical inference with interval probability is being organized at the University of Ljubljana. The workshop runs from Monday 5 September until Saturday 10 September 2011. This workshop is a follow-up to three earlier WPMSIIPs held in Durham (2008, 2010) and Munich (2009).
The theory of interval probability (also called imprecise probability) generalizes classical probability theory, by quantifying uncertainty via lower and upper probabilities. This provides exciting opportunities and challenges for development of theory and methods for statistical inference and decision support, which will be the main focus of activities in this workshop. For more information, see the webpages of the Society for Imprecise Probability: Theories and Applications.
The major aim of the WPMSIIP workshop is to stimulate discussion of ongoing research in imprecise/interval probability theories, providing a platform to discuss unsolved problems and to address unanswered questions. Everyone, including PhD students, is welcome to participate and/or to propose interesting topics for the workshop.
If you want to join, please send an email to Damjan Skulj (email@example.com) with a brief explanation of your intended contribution. If you want to propose a new topic, please send me an e-mail as soon as possible, preferably before the end of 2010.
