Call For Papers

Ninth International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management
(SUM 2015)

Quebec City, Canada -- September 16-18, 2015

Aims and Scope
The International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management (SUM) is an annual conference that was launched in 2007 with the goal to exploit and strengthen the connection between the Artificial Intelligence and Database communities. It aims at bringing together all those researchers interested in the management of uncertain, incomplete or inconsistent information. Such information originates commonly in applications where significant computational effort is needed to process data in a meaningful and semantically justifiable manner. Typical applications of that kind include databases, the Web, and the life sciences.

Papers are solicited in all areas of managing and reasoning with substantial and complex kinds of uncertain, incomplete or inconsistent information. These include (but are not restricted to) applications in decision support systems, risk analysis, machine learning, belief networks, logics of uncertainty, belief revision and update, argumentation, negotiation technologies, semantic web applications, search engines, ontology systems, information fusion, information retrieval, natural language processing, information extraction, image recognition, vision systems, data and text mining, and the consideration of issues such as provenance, trust, heterogeneity, and complexity of data and knowledge.

Invited Speakers
- Jean-Marie De Koninck (Université Laval, Québec City)
- Lise Getoor (University of California Santa Cruz)
- Ronald Yager (Machine Intelligence Institute - Iona College)
