General Information

The biannual ECSQARU conferences are a major forum for advances in the theory and practice of reasoning under uncertainty. Contributors are expected to come both from researchers interested in advancing the technology and from practitioners who are using uncertainty techniques in applications. The scope of ECSQARU includes, but is not limited to, fundamental issues, representation, inference, learning, and decision making in qualitative and numeric paradigms. Submissions are now invited for its eighth edition ECSQARU-2005.

Previous ECSQARU conferences have been held in Marseille (1991), Granada (1993), Fribourg (1995),  Bonn (1997), London (1999), Toulouse (2001) and Aalborg (2003).
