EmC-ICDSST 2019 Call-for-Papers – SP extended 10March2019

(Papers Submission Platform EasyChair)


Topic: “Decision Support Systems – Main Developments & Future Trends”

A look backwards over the last 30 years to evaluate how well we stand on the research areas of Decision Making and in which direction we should better proceed.

EURO, APDIO, UMA and the EURO Working Group on Decision Support Systems invite you to participate in the EmC-ICDSST 2019 – The EURO Mini International Conference on Decision Support System Technology on “Decision Support Systems – Main Developments & Future Trends” in the Madeira Island, Portugal. The Conference will be hosted at the UMA University of Madeira, during the period of May 27th to May 29th, 2019.

Due to the celebration of the 30 years of the EWG-DSS, the EmC-ICDSST 2019 aims at recapitulating the developments of the Decision Support Systems area in the last 3 decades,  as well as enforcing the trends and new technologies in use, so that a consensus about the appropriate steps to be taken in future DSS research work can be established.

The Organizing Committee of the EmC-ICDSST 2019 invites researchers, developers and specialists in the related areas of decision making, including its methodologies and technologies, as well as application oriented practitioners directed to the implementation of solutions for DSS challenges to submit their work to the EmC-ICDSST 2019.

In order to enforce the 30 Years Celebration of the EWG-DSS, all founding members of the EURO Working Group of Decision Support Systems and senior Collaborators from other DSS Communities, who have consistently contributed to the research in the DSS area in last years, are highly encouraged and invited to submit their contributions and participate in the conference.
