Update 4: IPMU 2016 - Deadline extended to 3 February 2016

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. 2016 edition of IPMU will take place at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The Eindhoven region has become one of the leading technology hotspots in Europe, which is also known by the name Brainport Eindhoven. This region is a breeding ground for innovation and the home base for companies, and world-class knowledge and research institutes. Many top international high-tech companies are located in Eindhoven, such as Philips, DAF Trucks and ASML. Eindhoven offers good social and cultural facilities, concerts halls, theatres and museums. Numerous cafés and restaurants lend the town center the pleasant and lively air of a big city.
