Call for special session
The IPMU conference is organized every two years with the focus of bringing together scientists working on methods for the management of uncertainty and aggregation of information in intelligent systems. It provides a medium for the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners in these and related areas.

Application Fields: Intelligent Systems and Information Processing, Decision Support, Database and Information Systems, Information Retrieval and Fusion, Image Processing, Multi-Media, Agents, Pattern Recognition, Medicine and Bioinformatics, Finance, Software Engineering, Industrial Engineering.
Submissions of Special Session Proposals
We invite researchers to organize a special session on a specific topic within the scope of the conference. Special sessions usually consist of about 4-6 presentations. Papers submitted to a special session will undergo the normal reviewing process. The deadline for submission of special sessions is January 15, 2012. Special session proposals should be sent to the special session organizer Salvatore Greco (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Each proposal should include the following information: title of the session, a short description of the topic, names and affiliations of the organizers, and a tentative list of papers and prospective authors.
