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 annual International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management (SUM), grown out of this large interest in uncertainty and inconsistency, aims at bringing together all those interested in the management of uncertainty and inconsistency at large, fostering the collaboration and cross-fertilization between the reasoning under uncertainty community and the databases and semantic Web communities.


SUM 2009 is the third edition of the International Conference on Scalable Uncertainty Management, following the successful previous editions SUM 2007 in Washington DC, USA, and SUM 2008 in Naples, Italy.
