DSS 2010 - the 15th IFIP WG 8.3 International Conference on Decision Support Systems under the theme
"Bridging the socio-technical gap in DSS - Challenges for the next decade"

July 7-10, 2010, Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal
http://dss2010.di.fc.ul.pt


In recent years, bridging the socio-technical gap has been a challenge in many areas of research. The socio-technical gap is the great divide between the social aspects aimed to be supported and those that are actually supported, due in part to technical limitations and in part to the complexity of the contexts where decision support must be provided. In Decision Support Systems, this challenge has raised several important questions concerned with the account and encapsulation of social aspects of managerial decision making as well as with the representation of certain human cognitive aspects, such as intuition or insights within computational systems. The 2010 International Conference of the IFIP WG 8.3 will focus on the theme "Bridging the socio-technical gap in DSS - Challenges for the next decade".

The IFIP TC8/Working Group 8.3 conferences present the latest innovations and achievements of academic communities on Decision Support Systems (DSS). These advances include theory, systems, computer aided methods, algorithms, techniques, applications and technologies supporting decision making.

DSS 2010 is sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, Operations Research Center-UL and FCT.

Submissions from academics and practitioners are invited and showcases of real case studies will be especially welcomed. Manuscripts will be peer-reviewed. The acceptance of the contributions will be based on the originality of the work, the relevance for the conference theme and its overall quality.

Suggested research topics include, but are not limited to:
- Affect and emotion in Decision Support Systems, e.g.
- From rationality to intuition in decision making
- Decision making in high risk situations
- Decision Models in the real-world, e.g.
- Inclusion of ethical considerations in real-world decision models
- Supporting complex decisions, e.g. urban planning and environmental policy
- Supporting multiple perspectives and conflicting objectives
- Executive Information Systems, e.g.
- Value judgments in executive information systems
- Understanding how to represent soft information for decision support
- Communication and decision support in managerial groups
- Negotiation Support Systems, e.g.
- Cultural diversity in negotiation support systems
- Problem specific design of NSS
- Knowledge Management, e.g.
- Organizational issues in knowledge management
- People management as KM ? designing DSS to leverage human capital
- Social software and networks in KM
- Knowledge and Resource Discovery, e.g.
- Knowledge and resource discovery in corporate decision making
- Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing, e.g.
- Role of context in business intelligence and data warehousing
- Methods and tools to support the communication between developers and managers
- Developing BI systems that educate as well as provide information
- Group Support Systems, e.g.
- Supporting creativity in self-directed groups
- Distributed DM
- Collaborative Decision Making, e.g.
- Tradeoffs in collaborative decision making
- Understanding the articulation of individual and group decision making /how are managers? contributions integrated into the corporate decision making
- Socio-technical aspects for DM in Geographic Information Systems, e.g.
- Privacy in geographic information systems
- Socio behavioral dynamics of geographic information system
- Rich language for Decision Support, e.g.
- Methods and tools to support the communication between DSS developers and managers
- Developing decision support systems that educate as well as provide information
- Web 2.0 Systems in Decision Support, e.g.
- Crowd sourcing decisions in Web 2.0
- Collective intelligence and Web 2.0
- Incorporating Complex Factors in Decision Support, e.g.
- Including the value of intellectual capital
- Framing the decision problem
- Decision making for socio-technical systems
- Understanding the role of context in decision making
