*Minitrack: Multi-criteria Decision Analysis and Support Systems*

*January 8-11, 2019, Grand Wailea Hotel, Maui, Hawaii, USA*


Most decisions are based on multiple criteria, pursuing multiple, often
conflicting objectives. A decision alternative is chosen based on a
multitude of often-conflicting decision criteria, and a solution is sought
that provides the best compromise with respect to these various desired
objectives. Many general software tools, such as linear programming
packages and electronic spreadsheets that do not implement specific MCDM
techniques, can also be used to analyze multi-criteria problems. MCDSS may
focus on various stages of the decision-making process, from problem
exploration and structuring, to discovering the decision-maker’s
preferences and the most preferred compromise solution. In assessing MCDSS,
it is important to consider not only the technology aspects, but also the
role of the decision-maker in the solution process, and the usability of
the system. This mini-track solicits papers dealing with decision support
for all types of multi-criteria decision problems. Case studies, papers
focusing on specific types of decision settings, heuristic approaches
applying IT, design of methods for automating parts of the decision-making
process, as well as papers focusing on the concepts and larger issues
involved in providing information systems support to such decision problems
are welcomed. The common thread is the explicit consideration of multiple
decision criteria.
Possible topics for this minitrack may include:
•    Success factors for MCDSS
•    The role of the decision-maker in effective multi-criteria decision
support with possible applications in cyber-physical-social convergence
with humans in the loop
•    Case studies of multi-criteria decision support
•    Innovative tools, methodologies and solutions for specific aspects or
phases of multi-criteria decision support as applicable to smart service
systems
•    Decision support for project selection
•    Decision support for specific application domains; examples include
personalized healthcare, smart energy, smart cities, smart manufacturing,
intelligent transportation, education, precision medicine and agriculture,
national security etc.
•    Classifications of decision problems and solution technology
•    Tools and techniques for multi-criteria portfolio selection
•    Solution approaches to special types of decision problems involving
conflicting objectives
•    Quality, types, and analytics of data in multi-criteria decision
support
•    Design of inter-dependent complex global systems using MCDCC such as
healthcare, smart gird, computer networks, logistics and supply-chains,
financial markets etc.
