A series of Workshops on Uncertainty Processing (WUPES) was held in the Czech Republic in 1988, 1991, 1994, 1997, 2000, and 2003. Like the previous meetings the forthcoming Workshop will foster creative intellectual activities and the exchange of ideas in an informal atmosphere. Therefore we will keep the number of participants limited (about 40).

Contributions belonging to the various fields of uncertainty processing are invited. Typical examples are:

  • probabilistic modelling (conditional independence models, graphical models, Bayesian networks, models based on coherence principles),
  • logical and algebraic modelling (including fuzzy approaches),
  • possibilistic approaches,
  • models based on belief functions,
  • representative applications.

The working character of the meeting is stressed by the fact that we also welcome papers casting new problems and inspiring discussion as well as contributions presenting promising but as yet not finished results.
