Main Description
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 1999 European Conference on Symbolic and Quantitative Approaches to Reasoning under Uncertainty, ECSQARU'99, held in London, UK, in July 1999.The 35 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book by the program committee. The volume covers theoretical as well as application-oriented aspects of various formalisms for reasoning under uncertainty. Among the issues addressed are default reasoning, nonmonotonic reasoning, fuzzy logic, Bayesian theory, probabilistic reasoning, inductive learning, rough knowledge discovery, Dempster-Shafer theory, qualitative decision making, belief functions, and evidence theory.
