Call for Papers


The IPMU conference is organized every two years with the focus of bringing together scientists working on methods for the management of uncertainty and aggregation. It also provides a forum for the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners in these and related areas. The 2024 edition of IPMU will take place at Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal, located in a vibrant renovated area 10 minutes from downtown. Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world, and full of stories to tell. A city where you feel safe wandering around day or night, where you’ll find hotels, restaurants and nightlife to suit every taste, budget and requirement. A city full of authenticity, where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is ageless, but it loves company, being famous for its hospitality and the family-like way it welcomes visitors. Lisbon has been elected World’s Leading City Destination at the 2018 World Travel Awards.
