Eighth International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management
(SUM 2014)


September 15-17, 2014
University of Oxford, United Kingdom

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the eighth edition
of the International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management
(SUM 2014). The conference has been held annually since 2007 in
College Park (USA), Napoli (Italy), Toulouse (France), Dayton (USA),
and Marburg (Germany).

A large amount of available data nowadays includes uncertain,
imprecise, and inconsistent information. The possibility of
integrating and exploiting these data calls for sound and efficient
techniques for managing uncertainty and handling inconsistency. These
issues, which have been traditionally addressed within the Artificial
Intelligence community, already play a key role in fields like
databases or the semantic Web.

The goal of this conference is therefore to exploit and strengthen 
the connection between the Artificial Intelligence and Database 
communities. It aims at bringing together all researchers interested 
in the management of and reasoning with substantial and complex kinds 
of uncertain data.
