The Summer School on MCDA/MCDM to be held in Chania, Greece, from 23 July - 3 August, 2018 targets towards PhD students who are interested in theoretical and applied aspects of MCDA/M and seek to get an in-depth undestanding of the field and related topics. The Summer School is a joint event of the Association of European Operational Research Societies (EURO), the International Society on MCDM, and the EURO Working Group on Multicriteria Decision Aiding, that aims to promote the ideas, philosophy and practices of MCDA/M to doctoral students. The School provides participants with a unique opportunity to get a comprehensive and in-depth view of the state-of-the-art in MCDA/M approaches and methodologies, their applications in various areas, the relevant software decision support tools, and the interconnections of MCDA/M with other closely related theoretical and applied disciplines from OR/MS, computer science, engineering, and social sciences. Thus, the Summer School provides a detailed coverage of all established and emerging areas in MCDA/M and further emphasizes the interdisciplinary character of the field, which is fundamental for addressing the challenges that complex decision problems pose, in an effective manner.
Finally, the Summer School constitutes a forum through which PhD students can exchange knowledge, ideas and experiences, discuss open problems and get feedback from leading scholars in MCDA/M, and build fruitful collaborations.

The official language of the School is English.
