Invitation to Decision Support Systems Conference
Dear colleagues, dear friends!
It gives me great pleasure to invite you to participate at the international and interdisciplinary conference “The 19th Open Conference of the IFIP WG 8.3 on Decision Support Systems” (IFIP DSS 2018) which will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, June 13-15, 2018.
Please, see the detailed information at http://ifip2018dss.ijs.si/
The theme of the conference "DSS Research Delivering High Impacts to Business and Society" highlights the main purpose of the DSS: providing support to people and organizations faced with difficult decision problems in a variety of contexts. This requires applying the DSS expertise to problems that arise in other disciplines, such as specific business areas, , ecology, natural sciences, management, social affairs, healthcare, media and many others. The DSS researchers should collaborate with other domains of expertise and leverage the DSS expertise to solve other people's problems.
On this basis, we aim to continue the success of past IFIP WG 8.3 conferences in supporting the dissemination of quality research, but also to provide a memorable experience through our hospitality and conference facilities in Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016. The 2018 IFIP WG 8.3 conference is organized by Jozef Stefan Institute, the largest Slovenian research institute, supported by several other institutions and in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the 1998 IFIP WG 8.3 conference that was held in Bled, Slovenia.
The IFIP WG 8.3 conference committees welcomes both academic and practitioner community contributions on a wide range of topics using a range of scholarly approaches that showcase the latest innovations and achievements in decision support and decision making. Submitted contributions that showcase methodological advances and real case studies will be especially welcomed. All contributions will be peer-reviewed and the acceptance of a contribution will be based on the originality of the work, the relevance to the conference theme and its overall quality.
The 2018 Open Conference of the IFIP WG 8.3 will highlight the applications, methods, analytics, stakeholders and impacts of decision making and decision support in today's society, business and environment.
