Workshops on Principles and Methods of Statistical Inference with Interval Probability (WPMSIIP)
Welcome to the webpage of WPMSIIP, a series of annual workshops on topics in statistical inference using
interval (`imprecise', `lower and upper') probability. The emphasis of these workshops is on `work',
particularly through presentation and discussion of research challenges, very recent developments and
ideas (these may turn out to be fruitful or not, both are useful!). To facilitate
discussions, each workshop has several `theme days' while also leaving time to discuss whatever comes to
mind; there are few (if any) `rules' for the workshops, we aim to leave them `as unorganized as possible'.
We also aim at zero fees for participants. Contact us if you wish to participate!
9th WPMSIIP 2016 - Durham, 2-6 September 2016
The 9th WPMSIIP 2016 will be held in Durham, from 2 to 6 September 2016. It immediately follows the
SIPTA Summer School on Imprecise Probabilities which will take place in Durham from 29 August till
2 September. Further information will become available in due course.
Expressions of interest to organize WPMSIIP in 2017 (and beyond) are welcome!

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)
- Jasper de Bock (Gent)
- Marco Cattaneo (Hull)
- Frank Coolen (Durham)
- Gert de Cooman (Gent)
- Sebastien Destercke (Compiegne)
- Erik Quaeghebeur (Amsterdam)
- Damjan Skulj (Ljubljana)
- Matthias Troffaes (Durham)
- Gero Walter (Durham)
- Andrea Wiencierz (York)
- GEOMIP-11: Workshop on Geometry of
Imprecise Probability and related Statistical Methods, Durham, 1-2 November 2011.
