Call For Papers

Objectives and Topics

IUKM2018 is the sixth edition of The International Symposium on Integrated Uncertainty in Knowledge Modelling and Decision Making (IUKM), of which its main objectives are outlined as follows:
  • to bring together researchers working on uncertainty formalisms in information and knowledge systems;
  • to attract researchers working in engineering and social sciences (economics, business, management and environmental sciences) who are interested in applying uncertainty-related tools and techniques;
  • to bring together researchers and practitioners in order to foster the collaboration on research and application involving uncertainty management; and
  • to present and discuss open research problems and novel applications.
Proposal for special sessions and workshops is encouraged and welcome.
Relevant topics for the IUKM 2018 Symposium include (but are not limited to) the following:

Theory and Methodology
  • Uncertainty formalisms: Bayesian probability, Dempster-Shafer theory, imprecise probability, random sets, rough sets, fuzzy sets and interval methods
  • Uncertainty modeling and management in big-data environments
  • Learning and reasoning with uncertainty
  • Information fusion and knowledge integration in uncertain environments
  • Decision making under various types of uncertainty
  • Aggregation operators for decision making
  • Copulas for dependence modelling
  • Granular and soft computing
  • Computational intelligence
  • Data mining and knowledge discovery
  • Ontology engineering and Semantic Web
  • Intelligent data analysis and modelling
  • Agents and argumentation
  • Natural language processing
  • Medical informatics and bioinformatics
  • Ranking and recommendation systems
  • Big data and cloud computing
  • Social network analysis and mining
  • Sensor fusion
  • System identification and modelling
  • Diagnosis and reliability
  • Decision support systems
  • Kansei/affective engineering
  • Service computing
  • Engineering management
  • Supply chain management
  • Environmental management
  • Economics and econometrics

Paper Submission and Publication

The authors are invited to submit their full papers by September 15, 2017 October 20, 2017 (extended deadline). The submissions will be peer-reviewed for originality and scientific quality. As done in previous editions, the proceedings of IUKM 2018 will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series, and be available at the Symposium. Authors are requested to prepare their papers in the Springer format. Submissions should not exceed 12 pages and must be submitted as PDF electronically through the conference's Easychair submission page. Please visit here for details.

IUKM 2018 Special Issues will be announced on this page later. Special Issues of previous IUKM conferences have been/will be published in the journal Annals of Operations Research and the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning.
