7th SIPTA Summer School


The school runs from Monday 29 August until Friday 2 September 2016. The morning lectures run from 9:00 to 12:30, and the afternoon lectures from 14:00 to 17:30. All lectures take place in room CM107 of the Mathematical Sciences department of Durham University.

The last day of the school overlaps with the WPMSIIP workshop, and will give all participants the possibility to interact with the wider imprecise community. We hope that several leading researchers will be present for the discussions, and also that some of the topics the students work on are of further interest to the WPMSIIP workshop. On the evening of 1 September, there will be a gala dinner.

All lectures will be given in English. Most lectures will be 3h30 long, including a coffee break. We aim for each lecture to be evenly split into theory and exercises. All the school materials (slides, videos, exercises, …) will also be available after the school on this website.
