# WPMSIIP 2016

9th Workshop on Principles and Methods of Statistical Inference with Interval Probability – Durham, 2-6 September 2016

## Programme

The timing for the programme on Friday is fixed.

For each of the other days, we will have a number of presentations, with up to 60 minutes per presentation. Each presentation should consist of at most 30 minutes of actual talking, followed by at most 30 minutes of discussion. The afternoons are reserved for open floor discussions but we can spill over talks to the afternoon if need be.

### Friday 2 September

- 9:00-10:30 Edoardo Patelli: Advanced examples of imprecise simulation in engineering [SIPTA school].
- 10:30-11:00 Coffee break.
- 11:00-12:00 Reflective group discussion about imprecise probability research questions and challenges for the next decade [SIPTA school + WPMSIIP].
- 12:00-13:00 Sandwich lunch.
- 13:00-14:30 Walk to Durham brewery.
- 14:30-16:00 Durham brewery visit.
- 16:00-17:30 Walk back to Durham.
