ICMFII'2016: Second Call for Papers
The International Conference on Multidimensional Finance, Insurance and Investment is devoted to the recent developments and applications of the Multi-Criteria Decision Aid tools in the field of finance and insurance. This scientific event disseminates recent methods and procedures designed to solve problems related to finance, insurance and portfolio selection formulated through a mathematical programming framework and for which a stack of conflicting and incommensurable objectives (criteria, attributes) is simultaneously optimized. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from all over the world to discuss recent theoretical and methodological developments of multi-attributes portfolio selection, insurance and investment.
