Reminder -- SIPTA Workshop on Uncertainty -- call for abstracts

The Society for Imprecise Probabilities: Theories and Applications will hold a Workshop on Uncertainty at Columbia University on April 17th of 2010, following the Synthese Conference on epistemology and economics that will take place at Columbia University on April 15th and 16th. We expect the workshop to feature a mixture of invited and contributed talks on the use of imprecise probabilities in models of inference and decision making under uncertainty.

Those who are interested in contributing a talk to the workshop should send a short abstract (no more than 300 words) to

with “SIPTA Workshop Contribution” in the subject of the message. Submitted abstracts must contain enough information for the committee to determine their suitability for a 20 minute talk followed by a 10 minute discussion period. Submitted abstracts must be received by February 20, 2010. Notifications of acceptance will be made by March 1, 2010. Due to the limited amount of space in Philosophy Hall, we ask those who would like to attend the meeting without giving a talk to send a copy of their CV to the same address as above but with “SIPTA Workshop Attendance” in the subject of the message.
