Purpose of the ICDSST 2016

The main purpose of the EWG-DSS 2016 International Conference on Decision Support System Technology (ICDSST 2016), with its main theme on “Decision Support Systems Addressing Societal Challenges”, is to attract researchers, developers and specialists in the related areas of decision making, including its methodologies and technologies, as well as application oriented practitioners directed to the implementation of solutions for societal challenges, to get together in order to exchange experiences and identify the key issues within the areas in focus, so that exploitation of new approaches and tools for future developments can take place.

Citizens in the current fast changing world are facing a great number of challenges, and decisions in relation to citizens’ activities either regarding business, commerce, work, and learning or recreation and social life, are getting more and more complex.

ICDSST 2016 Main Theme

This ICDSST 2016 will focus on the theme of how DSS can help address various societal challenges (inspired by the EU Horizon 2020 programme) in order to build a better society for us and for future generations to live in. Addressing societal issues is a daily need for each one of us. The various developments within Decision Systems, including collaborative decision making with the use of social networks and web resources; dynamic spatial-temporal decision making; and the existing research behind the technical and social aspects of web-based decision processes can certainly be of great support for future developments for solving societal challenges.

DSS for health, demographic change and well-being
DSS for food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry, and bio-economy
DSS for marine and maritime and inland water research
DSS for secure, clean and efficient energy
