Dear colleague,

We would like to draw your attention to the 7th International Symposium on Imprecise Probability: Theories and Applications, which be held at the University of Innsbruck from July 25 to July 28, 2011.

The ISIPTA meetings are one of the primary international forums to present and discuss new results on the theories and applications of imprecise probability.

Imprecise probability is a generic term for the many mathematical or statistical models which allow us to measure chance or uncertainty without using sharp numerical probabilities. These models include lower and upper expectations or previsions, interval valued probabilities, sets of probability measures, belief functions, Choquet capacities, comparative probability orderings, possibility measures, plausibility measures, and sets of desirable gambles. Imprecise probability models are needed in inference and decision problems where the relevant information is scarce, vague or conflicting, and where preferences may be incomplete.
