Call For Papers

DMDMS: International Workshop on Data Mining for Decision Making Support

In Conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies
May 23-26, 2016, Madrid, Spain

We cordially invite you to submit a paper, and to participate in the Data Mining for Decision Making Support workshop (DMDMS), to be held at Madrid, Spain, on May 23-26, 2016.


Decision making support systems (DMSS) are widely used to support business or organizational decision-making. They are used to inform decisions at all levels of an organization. Decision Support often needs to use and mine large amounts of data collected from multiple sources and, learn objectives or decision preferences from decision makers' responses. On the other hand, data mining has aided in several aspects of decision making. Data mining for decision making support (DMDMS) is an emerging field where researchers from both academia and industry have recognized the potential of its impact on improved decisions by discovering patterns and trends in large amounts of complex data generated by decision transactions. Data mining also helps to discover interesting business insights to help make business decisions that can influence cost efficiency and yet maintain a high quality of management.
This workshop will provide a common platform for discussion of challenging issues and potential techniques in this emergence field of data mining for decision support. It will also serve as a critical and essential forum for integrating various research challenges in this domain and promote collaboration among researchers from academia and industry to enhance the state-of-art and help define a clear path for future research in this emerging area. The workshop invites researchers and practitioners to submit original work on methodologies, models, algorithms, systems, tools, applications and case studies of DMDMS. Most importantly, the workshop will be a forum to discuss how to utilize advances from multiple disciplines for building DMDMS that can intelligently merge human knowledge and expertise with formal models to make better decisions.


The topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

. Knowledge management for DMS
. Ontologies for DMS
. Case-based reasoning for DMS
. Business intelligence for DMS
. Data mining for DMS
. Optimization methods for DMS
. Knowledge and resource discovery for DMS
. Information and Knowledge Retrieval for DMS
. Group, distributed, and collaborative DMS
. Big Data Analytics and DMS
. Case studies of DMDMS


All papers accepted for the workshop will be scheduled for oral presentations and will be included in the ANT-2016 proceedings, which will be published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series on-line. Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (, and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will be indexed by Scopus ( and by Thomson Reuters' Conference Proceeding Citation Index The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your proceedings. All accepted papers will also be indexed in DBLP (

At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the workshop to present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings.

The selective outstanding papers presented at the workshops, after further revision, will be considered for publication in journals special issues.
