We invite applications for the IJAR Young Researcher Award, which is granted by the International Journal of Approximate Reasoning (IJAR).

The prize will be awarded to one (or more) young researchers for excellent research in the area of imprecise probabilities. IJAR will make available a total of 1000 Euros, in order to support the attendance of ISIPTA'13 (or also related conferences) by partially reimbursing expenses for travel, acommodation, registration etc.

The award is open to Master students, PhD students and young post-doc researchers who received their PhD after ISIPTA'11 and who have demonstrated excellence in research on imprecise probabilities. (The corresponding stage of the career is taken into account in the judgement.) Note that in order to apply for the award, it is NOT a necessary condition to have a paper accepted at ISIPTA'13.
