>Aims and Scope
>The International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management (SUM) is an=
> annual conference that was launched in 2007 with the goal to exploit and s=
>trengthen the connection between the Artificial Intelligence and Database c=
>ommunities. It aims at bringing together all those researchers interested i=
>n the management of uncertain, incomplete or inconsistent information. Such=
> information originates commonly in applications where significant computat=
>ional effort is needed to process data in a meaningful and semantically jus=
>tifiable manner. Typical applications of that kind include databases, the W=
>eb, and the life sciences.
>Papers are solicited in all areas of managing and reasoning with substantia=
>l and complex kinds of uncertain, incomplete or inconsistent information. T=
>hese include (but are not restricted to) applications in decision support s=
>ystems, risk analysis, machine learning, belief networks, logics of uncerta=
>inty, belief revision and update, argumentation, negotiation technologies, =
>semantic web applications, search engines, ontology systems, information fu=
>sion, information retrieval, natural language processing, information extra=
>ction, image recognition, vision systems, data and text mining, and the con=
>sideration of issues such as provenance, trust, heterogeneity, and complexi=
>ty of data and knowledge.
