Workshop on the Theory on Belief Functions

Brest, France, April 1-2, 2010

Honorary chairs and invited speakers :
Arthur P. Dempster and Glenn Shafer


The theory of belief functions, also referred to as evidence theory or Dempster-Shafer theory, was first introduced by Arthur P. Dempster in the context of statistical inference, and was later developed by Glenn Shafer as a general framework for modelling epistemic uncertainty. These early contributions have been the starting points of many important developments, including the Transferable Belief Model and the Theory of Hints. The theory of belief functions is now well established as a general framework for reasoning with uncertainty, and has well understood connections to other frameworks such as probability, possibility and imprecise probability theories.

This workshop is dedicated to the confrontation of ideas, the reporting of recent achievements and the presentation of the wide range of applications of this theory.

This workshop will give opportunities to exchange information and ideas on various aspects of the theory of belief functions. The intended audience for this workshop includes researchers and practitioners develop and use the theory of belief functions. Original contributions are therefore solicited on theoretical aspects (including decision making, combination rules, continuous belief functions, independence and graphical models, statistical estimation, etc), as well as on applications in various areas including, but not limited to data fusion, pattern recognition, clustering, tracking, data mining, signal and image processing, medical diagnosis, business decision, etc.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning (Elsevier).

Paper submissions are due by 4 January 2010 and should be no more than 6 pages in length. Paper submission instructions are available at All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two reviewers.
Thanks to the EGC association, the inscriptions of students for the first submissions of student paper, if accepted, will be free.
