In order to deal with indeterminacy mathematically, two axiomatic systems have been founded, namely, probability theory and uncertainty theory. When no samples are available to estimate a probability distribution, we have to invite some domain experts to evaluate the belief degree that each event will happen. In order to rationally deal with personal belief degrees, uncertainty theory was founded in 2007 and subsequently studied by many researchers. Nowadays, uncertainty theory has become a branch of mathematics.

Scope and Topics

The goal of this special session is to provide an excellent forum for the discussion of the latest theoretical advances and practical applications in this exciting research field, to help foster the understanding, development, and practice of uncertainty theory for solving problems in economy, engineering, management and the social sciences. We invite the submission of high-quality, original and unpublished papers in this area. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Uncertainty theory
  • Uncertain statistics 
  • Uncertain programming 
  • Uncertain risk analysis 
  • Uncertain set 
  • Uncertain logic 
  • Uncertain inference 
  • Uncertain process 
  • Uncertain calculus 
  • Uncertain differential equation 
  • Other real-world applications
