IJAR young researcher award
Thanks to the continued support of the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning, the upcoming edition of ISIPTA will again hand out an IJAR Young Researcher Award. The prize consists of a certificate and 1000 euros. It will be awarded to one (or split between several) young researcher(s), for excellent research in the area of imprecise probabilities. Fabio Cozman, Alessandro Antonucci and Barbara Vantaggi will constitute the jury.
The award is open to Master students, PhD students and young post-doc researchers who have received their PhD after the previous ISIPTA (that is, after 14 July 2017). The career stage will be taken into account during judgement.
All applicants are expected to
- have demonstrated excellence in research on imprecise probabilities;
- have submitted a paper or poster abstract (not necessarily as a first author) to ISIPTA 2019;
- attend ISIPTA 2019.
The deadline for applying for the award coincides with the poster submission deadline: 7 June 2019. Applicants should provide a CV and the title of their PhD/Master thesis. More information on how to submit these will be made available later.
Best poster awards
A jury consisting of Erik Quaeghebeur, Teddy Seidenfeld and a young student (to be announced latter) will make a selection of best poster presentations, taking into account both quality of design and quality of the explanations. The award is open to everyone that presents a poster. This also includes paper authors, provided of course that they bring a poster to the discussion session, rather than some other visual aid. The winners will receive a certificate and a book related to imprecise probabilities, generously offered by Wiley and Springer.
