Ninth school of the Society for Imprecise Probability: Theories and Applications (SIPTA)

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak the school will be postponed to a new yet unknown date, or until testing kits with a very high specificity will be largely available to the population.

The Risk Institute is glad to host the next SIPTA summer school. The school will run from Monday to Friday, 13 - 17 July 2020. Register your interest here. The official registration page will be soon available.

We warmly invite all the students and researchers in imprecise probability (IP) to participate. If you are new to IP and wonder what it is and whether you’re interested, here is an introduction.

It is an exciting time to be part of the IP community because of the many challenges we are faced with in modelling complex autonomous systems, and in making sense of experimental data.

This is a great opportunity to meet likeminded researchers, learn more about IP and enjoy a set of extracurricular activities, including a characteristic pub crawl, football, and hiking.

The School will feature a number of speakers who are renowned leaders in their field. The topics and speakers so far confirmed are:

  • Game-theoretic foundations for statistical testing and imprecise probabilities, and the relevance of these foundations to evidence theory, by Glenn Shafer
  • Inferential models, by Ryan Martin
  • Expert aggregation by Seamus Bradley
  • Other topics:
  • Uncertainty communication
  • Intro to IP and credal sets

For each hour of teaching, half hour will be dedicated to interactive discussion and practical learning.

Lodging, lunches and refreshments will be provided to graduate/PhD students.
