Call for papers - International Conference on Decision Support System Technologies (ICDSST 2018) – PROMETHEE Days 2018

The ICDSST in 2018 is jointly organised by the Euro Working Group on Decision Support Systems EWG-DSS and the PROMETHEE DAYS Group. The joint-conference aims to provide a communication platform for scholars, researchers, developers, specialists and other professionals in the related areas of decision making and decision support, including DSS methodologies and technologies as well as application oriented solutions, to get together in order to exchange ideas, share experiences, discuss key issues, and identify future research and development directions. Additionally, users of PROMETHEE are also welcome to participate and disseminate their theoretical developments, comparative analyses or practical applications of the PROMETHEE methods.

The ICDSST-PROMETHEE DAYS 2018 will focus on the role, the qualities, the models and methods offered by sustainable data-driven and evidence based Decision Support, mainly applied to Environment and Energy. On these sectors, diverse stakeholders at various governance levels seek to devise and implement sound and robust policies which mitigate environmental impacts while taking into account various parameters. Decision Support Systems can simulate different scenarios and offer solutions in modern managerial issues which are full of redundant and complex information. Such rapidly evolving situations, which engage a large number of individuals with different agendas in complicated decision making processes, require such tools for support.
