In the last decade, research activities in imprecise probability (IP), carried out by isolated groups scattered throughout the world, have been successively embedded into a number of formal structures: the biennial ISIPTA symposium starting in 1999, the SIPTA society founded in 2002, and the SIPTA summer schools since 2004. To reflect this period of adolescence in a data analytic way, a natural approach is to apply social network analysis. The R package ISIPTA provides infrastructure (data, demos, etc.) for a comprehensive analysis of the ISIPTA community.
Execute demo("coauthors-network", package = "ISIPTA") for the current co-authorship network. Find an author:
Summarize the author's ISIPTA contributions:R> find_author("Gero") name nodeid 1 Gero Walter 91

The poster (abstract) is reproducible (now with data from ISIPTA '11) by the package demos:
R> demo(package = "ISIPTA") ## list all demos R> demo("simple-summary") ## execute a demo
The stable version of ISIPTA is available on CRAN; issue the following from within R to install it:
The development version is available on GitHub.
