Welcome to SUM 2022

The 15th international conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management (SUM 2022) will take place on October 17-19, 2022, at Université Paris-Dauphine - PSL, in Paris, France.

Established in 2007, the SUM conferences are annual events which aim to gather researchers with a common interest in managing and analyzing imperfect information from a wide range of fields, such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Databases, Information Retrieval and Data Mining, the Semantic Web and Risk Analysis, and with the aim of fostering collaboration and cross-fertilization of ideas from the different communities.

An originality of the SUM conferences is their care for dedicating a large space of their program to tutorials covering a wide range of topics related to uncertainty management. Each tutorial provides a survey of one of the research areas in the scope of the conference.



Opening of the SUM 2022 conference: Monday, October 17 at 8:30 a.m. (registration+ coffee/tea+"croissants")

The conference will be in-person only at Université Paris-Dauphine, in room Raymond Aron
