Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit extended abstracts or short papers to the EURO Mini-Conference Graz-2013 on Collaborative Decision Systems in Economics and in Complex Societal and Environmental Applications”that will be hosted at the Karl-Franzens University of Graz in Austria, in cooperation with its the Institute of Statistics and Operations Research, from October 17th to 19th, 2013.


The EURO Mini-Conference Graz-2013 on “Collaborative Decision Systems in Economics and in Complex Societal and Environmental Applications” will be composed of 4 Streams:

1. Stream of Decision Support Systems (chaired by the EWG-DSS);
2. Stream of Experimental Economics (chaired by the EWG E-CUBE);
3. Stream of  Complex Societal Problems (chaired by the EWG-MCSP); and
4. Stream of OR in Agriculture and Forest Management (chaired by the EWG-ORAFM).

Due to its interdisciplinary flavour, this conference brings together researchers of the areas of Decision Sciences, Operations Research, Economics, Societal Complexity, Environmental Management and their respective fields of applications. Collaborative Decision Systems in the areas of Economics, Societal and Environmental Applications are very much encouraged to be submitted to this EURO Mini-Conference.
