IFIP Working Group 8.3 invites interested professionals to Ljubljana, Slovenia, for the 2018 Open Conference of the IFIP WG 8.3 on Decision Support Systems from 13-15 June 2018.
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 organisations 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 healthcare, specific business areas, 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, WG 8.3 aims to continue the success of its past conferences in supporting the dissemination of quality research, but also to provide a memorable experience through excellent hospitality and conference facilities in Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016.
The 2018 IFIP WG 8.3 conference is organised by Jožef Stefan Institute, the largest Slovenian research institute, 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 committee 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 and business. For more details see: http://ifip2018dss.ijs.si/
