Call For Papers

8th International Conference on Intelligent Decision Technologies (IDT-2016)
Luxury 5* Hotel Botanico & The Oriental Spa Garden, Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain
15th-17th June 2016

We are delighted to invite contributions to the 8th International Conference on Intelligent Decision Technologies, organised by KES International. IDT-2016 is an international scientific conference for research in the area of Intelligent Decision Technologies with subjects considering theory and application. This conference is dedicated to improving decision making.

The conference is interdisciplinary in nature and will consist of keynote talks, oral and poster presentations, invited sessions and workshops, on the applications and theory of intelligent decision systems and related areas. It will provide excellent opportunities for the presentation of interesting new research results and discussion about them, leading to knowledge transfer and generation of new ideas.

The conference will be co-located under the KES Smart Digital Futures umbrella with our other Intelligent Systems conferences: IIMSS, AMSTA, SEEL and the newly
added InMED (Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare). Registration gives access to all of these conferences, together with a paper published in one set of proceedings.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer as book chapters in a volume of the KES Smart Innovation Systems and Technologies series, submitted for indexing in Scopus and Thomson-Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and the Web of Science.

Please see the Smart Digital Futures website: for more information.

Conference Scope

Papers are invited on theoretical and applied topics related to the scope of the conference.

General Topics of Interest
