Call For Papers

Call for Papers: Multi-Objective Decision Making Workshop (MODeM 2023) at ECAI 2023

Following on from a successful initial workshop that was held virtually in 2021, the second MODeM workshop will be held in person at ECAI 2023, in Kraków, Poland.

Covering all aspects of multi-objective/multi-criteria/multi-attribute decision making in relation to intelligent systems and autonomous agents

We aim to organise a special issue in an AI journal related to this workshop. TBA.

Further details are available on the workshop website:

Explicitly modelling multiple objectives can be essential for decision support, explainability, and human-AI alignment. As such, there has been a growing awareness of the need for automated and assistive decision making systems to move beyond single-objective formulations when dealing with complex real-world issues, which invariably involve multiple competing objectives. In this workshop, we aim to provide a platform for original research in multi-objective decision making using AI.

The workshop targets high-quality original papers covering all aspects of multi-objective decision making, including, but not limited to, the list of topics below.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics that we would like to cover in the workshop:
Multi-objective/multi-criteria/multi-attribute decision making
Multi-objective reinforcement learning
Multi-objective planning and scheduling
Multi-objective multi-agent decision making
Multi-objective game theory
Multi-objective/multi-criteria/multi-attribute utility theory
Preference elicitation for MODeM
Social choice and MODeM
Multi-objective decision support systems
Multi-objective metaheuristic optimisation (e.g. evolutionary algorithms) for autonomous agents and multi-agent systems
Human-AI alignment through multi-objective modelling
Ethical AI through multi-objective modelling
Explainable AI through multi-objective modelling
Interactive systems for MODeM
Applications of MODeM
New benchmark problems for MODeM

Important Dates

Submissions due by midnight (Anywhere on Earth, UTC-12): 30 June 2023
Notification of acceptance: 15 August 2023
Camera-ready copies: 22 August 2023
Workshop: 30 September or 1 October 2023 (TBA)

Submission details

Papers should be formatted according to the ECAI 2023 guidelines and should be a maximum of 7 pages in length (with additional pages containing references only). Shorter papers (up to 5 pages) reporting preliminary results and work-in-progress are also welcome. Submissions should report original work that has not previously been published elsewhere. Finally, we also welcome recently published journal papers in the form of a 2-page abstract.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed (single-blind). Accepted work will be allocated time for poster and/or oral presentation during the workshop. Extended versions of original papers presented at the workshop will also be eligible for inclusion in a post-proceedings journal special issue (journal to be confirmed).

Papers can be submitted through CMT:
