5-8 September 2006, Prague International Colloquium 2006: Uncertainty, Prague

Date: 5-8 September 2006
Location: Prague
Deadline: 6 June 2006

Uncertainty is a ubiquitous phenomenon in everyday life, but it is also a topic of fundamental significance to many scientific disciplines. Uncertainty taken here in a broad sense, has many facets - among them probability and vagueness, including possibility, confidence, fuzziness etc. These are captured by different theories which often seem to be conceptually and technically incompatible. The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for an open discussion between proponents of the main theories of uncertainty and vagueness on the market. Special attention shall be paid to the comparison of theories, analyzing differences and similarities of the respective concepts of uncertainty. Of particular interest are logical aspects and formal models of reasoning about vague information.
