**Imprecise Probabilities**

**SIPTA Summer School**

*Society for Imprecise Probability:
Theory and Applications*. This society is in charge of the promotion of Imprecise
Probabilities, as well as the organization of the biannual ISIPTA Conference and SIPTA
Summer School. The SIPTA Summer School is a meant to serve as an introduction to imprecise probability theory and
its applications to master, PhD students and more generally to any scholar that is interested in becoming acquainted with the theory.

** 8 ^{th} SIPTA Summer School**

^{th} SIPTA Summer School will take place in Oviedo (Spain) from 24 to 28 of July, 2018. It will introduce both the main theoretical aspects of imprecise probability models and in particular
belief functions, as well as their applications on machine learning, decision making and engineering. Leading specialists in these different aspects of imprecise probabilities
will lecture on the main concepts and techniques associated to their area of expertise, in a friendly environment favouring interaction between participants.
You can find in this website more information about the speakers and the topics. The school is also collocated with the 11th workshop on Principles and Methods of Statistical Inference with
Interval Probability (WPMSIIP'2018), that will take place between July 30 and August 1, 2018.
