Call for papers:


The EWG-DSS ICDSST Conferences, starting with the ICDSST-2015 in Belgrade, were planned to offer the European and International DSS Communities (including the academic and the industrial sectors) opportunities to discuss about the modern challenges that surround Decision-Making processes, focusing on realistic but innovative solutions; as well as on potential new business opportunities.

The main purpose of the EWG-DSS International Conference on Decision Support Systems Technology (ICDSST 2015), with its main theme on “Big Data Analytics in Decision Making”, is to attract researchers, developers and specialists of the related areas of decision making, its methodologies and technologies; as well as application oriented practitioners directed to the implementation of big data analytics solutions, to get together in order to exchange experiences and identify the key issues within various decision making application areas, so that exploitation of new approaches and tools for dealing with Big Data in Decision Making processes can be effectively implemented in future developments.


Nowadays in almost all application areas, several trends and technologies are making it possible for decision makers at various levels of organizations to make more informed decisions, faster and in a cooperative way. The decision-making process that is urged these days is a more decentralized, distributed, as well as more collaborative one. Moreover, best practices in contemporary business decisions and decision-making methods show that it is crucial to have availability of analytical power within the collaborative platform to bring the necessarily sense of data.

Data is generated at a pace faster than ever, so a big challenge for decision-makers is to unleash the potential of Big Data and Analytics in order to make efficient and right timed decisions. Analyzing complex data that has huge volumes that are generated at high speed is currently an open problem for the society, as it is estimated that 80% of new data has never been analyzed before. There is a huge potential in using Big Data for Decision-Making. However, there are many open quest ions both from practical and from research points of views. Development of new tools and methods for decision making to deal with the Bog Data era is a crucial effort that needs to be faced urgently.

Specific topics of interest include (but not limited to):
- Social-Networks Analysis for Decision-Making
- Group & Collaborative Decision-Making
- Multi-attribute Decision-Making (DM)
- DM Integrated Solutions within Open Data cross-plat forms
- Knowledge Management & Resource Discovery for Decision Making
- Big Data Analysis Datasets (open challenges)
- Big Data Analysis Algorithms (state-of-the-art and available systems)
- Big Data Analytics approaches for solving societal decision making issues
- Innovative Decision Making Methods and Technologies
- DSS Applications facing Big Data Analysis, like:
o DSS addressing health, demographic change and wellbeing
o DSS addressing food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry
o DSS addressing marine and maritime and inland water research
o DSS addressing bio-economy
o DSS addressing secure, clean and efficient energy
o DSS addressing smart, green and integrated transport
o DSS addressing climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials
o DSS addressing inclusive, innovative and reflective societies
o DSS addressing secure societies – protecting citizens’ freedom and security
o DSS addressing business innovations
o DSS addressing modern education.
