Call For Papers

Call for Papers: Multi-Objective Decision Making Workshop (MODeM 2024) at ECAI 2024


- Following on from successful previous editions that were held virtually in 2021 and in person at ECAI in 2023, the Multi-Objective Decision Making 2024 (MODeM 2024) workshop will be held in person again this year at ECAI 2024, on 19/20 October (TBC) in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
- MODeM 2024 covers all aspects of multi-objective/multi-criteria/multi-attribute decision making in relation to intelligent systems and autonomous agents
- After the workshop, there will be a topical collection on Multi-Objective Decision Making 2024 in the journal Neural Computing & Applications (NC&A, impact factor 6.0, one of the top 10 journals in AI on Google Scholar Metrics)
- Further details are available on the workshop website:


Location: Santiago de Compostela, Spain, co-located with ECAI 2024 (


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
- Multi-objectivisation
- 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
-Interdisciplinary work (MODeM research that relates to other fields)
- New benchmark problems for MODeM

Important Dates

Submissions deadline: 15 June 2024 (23:59 AoE)
Notification of acceptance: 06 August 2024
Camera-ready copies: 13 August 2024
Workshop: 19 or 20 October 2024 (TBC)
Submission details

Papers should be formatted according to the ECAI 2024 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 summaries of recently published journal papers in the form of a 2-page abstract.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed (double-blind). Accepted work will be allocated time for oral and/or poster presentation during the workshop.
Papers can be submitted through Microsoft CMT:

Topical Collection on Multi-Objective Decision Making 2024

After the workshop, all original contributions presented at MODeM 2024 will be invited to submit substantially improved and extended versions of their work, for consideration to be published in a post-proceedings topical collection (TC) of the Springer journal Neural Computing & Applications (NC&A, impact factor 6.0, one of the top 10 journals in AI on Google Scholar Metrics).
