IPMU2020 Lisboa

 June 15-19th, 2020, Lisbon, Portugal

18th International Conference on Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge-Based systems

Proposals for Special Sessions and Panel Sessions are due on November, 22st 

Paper submissions are due on January, 31st 

The IPMU conference is organized every two years with the focus of bringing together scientists working on methods for the management of uncertainty and  imprecision in data, information or knowledge, for reasoning or for learning. It also provides a forum for the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners in these and related areas. The 2020 edition of IPMU will take place at Instituto Superior T��cnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal, located in a vibrant renovated area 10 minutes from downtown. Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and full of stories to tell. A city where you feel safe wandering around day or night, where you���ll find hotels, restaurants and nightlife to suit every taste, budget and requirement. A city full of authenticity, where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is ageless, but it loves company, being famous for its hospitality and the family-like way it welcomes visitors. Lisbon has been elected World���s Leading City Destination at the 2018 World Travel Awards.


Topics and Scope of the Conference include (but are not limited to)
Theory, Methods and Tools: Uncertainty, Computational Intelligence, Bayesian and Probabilistic Methods, Information Theory, Measures of Information and Uncertainty, Evidence and Possibility Theory, Utility Theory, Fuzzy Sets and Fuzzy Logic, Fuzzy Control, Rough Sets, Multiple Criteria Decision Methods, Aggregation Methods, Knowledge Representation, Approximate Reasoning, Non-classical Logics, Default Reasoning, Belief Revision, Argumentation, Ontologies, Uncertainty in Cognition, Graphical Models, Knowledge Acquisition, Soft Computing, Interpretable Machine Learning, Evolutionary Computation, Neural Networks, Data Analysis/Data Science, Explainable AI.
Application Fields: Intelligent Systems and Information Processing, Decision Support, Database and Information Systems, Information Retrieval and Fusion, Speech and Natural Language Processing, Image Processing, Multi-Media, Agents, Pattern Recognition, Medicine and Bioinformatics, Finance, Software Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Big Data.


IPMU���2020 seeks original research contributions of theoretical and methodological nature as well as application-oriented work. All accepted papers will be published in Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science series. 



Leading researchers and industry experts are invited to submit proposals for Special Sessions. Interested parties need to provide sufficient evidence in support of their proposed special session topic, explaining why it deserves distinct focus and how it relates to the themes of the conference. Evidence of sufficient interest to attract papers for the special session should also be provided. Each special session is expected to attract 4 ��� 6 accepted papers.
