Workshops on Principles and Methods of Statistical Inference with Interval Probability (WPMSIIP)
Members of the Statistics Groups at Durham University (UK) and Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich
(Germany) have been collaborating for many years on statistical inference with interval probability.
This collaboration was kindly supported by a UK Royal Society Grant during 2008 and 2009, leading
to the initiation of a series of workshops with explicit emphasis on `work'. Each workshop combines
some special topic days with more general `open topic' days, the special topics of previous workshops
are briefly mentioned in the list below, where links are provided to the workshop webpages.
6th WPMSIIP 2013 - Lugano, 5-10 September 2013
The 6th WPMSIIP 2013 will take place in Lugano from 5 to 10 September 2013. All relevant
information is available on the workshop webpage: 6th WPMSIIP 2013,
which will be updated regularly over the coming months. For further details please
contact the main organiser, Alesandro Antonucci (email@example.com).
Expressions of interest to organize WPMSIIP in 2014 (and beyond) are welcome!
- 5th WPMSIIP 2012 Munich, 10-15 September 2012.
Special topics: IP as a new perspective on basic statistical tasks; Regression, classification and support
vector machines; Evaluation and comparison of imprecise methods and models; Learning and updating.
- 4th WPMSIIP 2011 Ljubljana, 5-10 September 2011.
Special topics: Modelling dependence / multivariate statistics; Conditioning and updating; Geometry of imprecise probabilities; Stochastic processes.

- 2nd WPMSIIP 2009 Munich, 9-15 September 2009.
Special topics: Reliability; Graphical Models and Markov Chains; Foundations; Regression; Classification, Computation and
Numerical Analysis. This workshop also included a special lecture day in honour of Professor Kurt Weichselberger, to
celebrate his 80th birthday.

WPMSIIP explicitly aims to keep formal organisation structures and bureaucracy at a minimum. Nevertheless,
to guide the planning and organisation of these meetings there is a WPMSIIP work group consisting of:
- Alessandro Antonucci (Lugano)
- Thomas Augustin (Munich)
- Mikelis Bickis (Saskatoon)
- Marco Cattaneo (Munich)
- Frank Coolen (Durham)
- Gert de Cooman (Gent)
- Erik Quaeghebeur (Gent)
- Damjan Skulj (Ljubljana)
- Matthias Troffaes (Durham)
- Gero Walter (Munich)
- Andrea Wiencierz (Munich)
- GEOMIP-11: Workshop on Geometry of
Imprecise Probability and related Statistical Methods, Durham, 1-2 November 2011.
