Call For Papers
The International Journal of Approximate Reasoning is intended to serve as a forum for the treatment of imprecision and uncertainty in Artificial and Computational Intelligence, covering both the foundations of uncertainty theories, and the design of intelligent systems for scientific and engineering applications. It publishes high-quality research papers describing theoretical developments or innovative applications, as well as review articles on topics of general interest.

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, probabilistic reasoning and Bayesian networks, imprecise probabilities, random sets, belief functions (Dempster-Shafer theory), possibility theory, fuzzy sets, rough sets, decision theory, non-additive measures and integrals, qualitative reasoning about uncertainty, comparative probability orderings, game-theoretic probability, default reasoning, nonstandard logics, argumentation systems, inconsistency tolerant reasoning, elicitation techniques, philosophical foundations and psychological models of uncertain reasoning.

Domains of application for uncertain reasoning systems include risk analysis and assessment, information retrieval and database design, information fusion, machine learning, data and web mining, computer vision, image and signal processing, intelligent data analysis, statistics, multi-agent systems, etc.

The journal is affiliated with the North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society (NAFIPS), and collaborates with the Society for Imprecise Probability: Theories and Applications (SIPTA).

Special Issues
Special Issue on Probability and Statistics: Foundations and History. In honor of Glenn Shafer
Submission Date: 2020-10-21

Glenn Shafer will be 75 in November 2021. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning in his honor, and on occasion of this event, will be devoted to the main areas of his research. Glenn’s main research interest has been in the foundations of probability and statistics. While he was still a PhD student he became interested in Arthur Dempster's novel ideas in statistical inference, developing them into what later became known as Dempster-Shafer theory. He continued with deep analyses of causality and graphical models, contributing both to their mathematics and to their philosophy. Later he greatly contributed to developing Philip Dawid's prequential principle, to overcome limitations of measure-theoretic probability. His interest in the foundations has been complemented and reinforced by his interest in the history of probability and statistics. The Special Issue will mainly contain original research articles written by Glenn's colleagues and fellow researchers, describing new developments and results in the areas in which Glenn has been active, including: Theory of belief functions; Graphical models and causal inference; Game-theoretic probability; Conformal prediction; History of probability and statistics.
