CALL FOR PAPERS
Third International Conference on ALGORITHMIC DECISION THEORY
Brussels, Nov. 13-15, 2013
The International Research Group on Algorithmic Decision Theory in collaboration with the European working group on preferences is proud to announce the Third International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory (ADT 2013). ADT seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners coming from diverse areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Database Systems, Operations Research, Decision Theory, Discrete Mathematics, Game Theory, Multiagent systems, Computational Social Choice, and Theoretical Computer Science in order to improve the theory and practice of modern decision support and automation systems. The contemporary theory and practice of decision theory and decision analysis must account for the presence of massive databases containing data extracted from the web or via data mining, combinatorial structures, partial and/or uncertain information, and distributed, possibly interoperating decision makers, and the existence of masses of potential users on the web. Such problems arise in various real-world decision making problems such as electronic commerce, and recommender systems, network optimization (communication, transport, energy), risk assessment and management, e-government.
ADT provides a multi-disciplinary forum for sharing knowledge in this area with a special focus on algorithmic issues in Decision Theory. The two first International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory (ADT 2009, 2011) brought together researchers and practitioners from diverse areas of computer science, economics, and operations research from around the globe, with proceedings published in LNAI 5783 and LNAI 6992. ADT 2013 seeks to continue this tradition and invites technical research papers on the following areas:
- Algorithmic Challenges to Modern Decision Support and Automation
- Uncertainty and Robustness in Decision Making
- Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis and optimization
- Collective Decision Making
- Preferences in Reasoning and Decision Making
- Decision Theoretic Artificial Intelligence
- Learning and Knowledge Extraction for Decision Support
More specifically contributions to the conference are sought in the following topics: Preference Modeling and Aggregation; Multiobjective optimization; Planning and Sequential Decision Making under uncertainty; Robustness in Decision Making; Computational Social Choice; Compact Representation of Preferences; Preference Elicitation, Queries in Data Bases; Universal Languages for Preferences; Efficient Algorithms for Decision Making and Support; Multi-Agent Systems; Algorithmic Game Theory ; Communication Complexity; Argumentation and Explanation in Decision Support; Preferences and Policies Learning; Knowledge Extraction; Algorithm Tuning; Recommender Systems; Decision Support Systems.
The ADT 2013 Program Committee invites submissions of technical research papers that will be reviewed based on the standard criteria of clarity, relevance, significance, originality, and soundness. These papers are expected to convey substantial technical contributions to the field, or to describe case studies and deployed applications, all placed in the context of existing work.
Title and abstract submission: May 3, 2013;
Paper submission: May 12, 2013;
Notification: June 7, 2011;
Final version June 28, 2013;
ADT'13: November 13-15, 2013;
Two types of submission are proposed:
- Submission for proceedings: Submissions are invited on significant, original, and previously unpublished research on all aspects of Algorithmic Decision Theory. Papers must be at most 12 pages long in the LNCS format. The proceedings of ADT 2013 will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation, or both. However, no distinction will be made between accepted papers in the conference proceedings.
- Submission without proceedings: Submission are invited on significant recent results on Algorithmic Decision Theory. Papers must be at most 12 pages long. They will not appear in the proceedings and can be submitted elsewhere. Selected papers in this category will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation, or both.
In any case, at least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference to present the work. Authors will be required to agree to this requirement at the time of submission. Papers must be submitted via the Easychair system (see the conference web page www.adt2013.org for details).
