During the GDN 2014, the EWG-DSS Coordination Board had the opportunity to grant its 3rd Award Ceremony: The EWG-DSS 2013 Award went to  Dr. Daouda Kamissoko, concerning the paper “Decision Support System for infrastructure network disruption management” that was presented in the EWG-DSS Thessaloniki-2013 Workshop, in Greece, in May 2013. We congratulate again Daouda for his achievement! Soon a complete report about the EWG-DSS 2013 Award will be updated in the Award page of this homepage.


It was a great pleasure for the EWG-DSS to participate in this Conference as Joint-Organizers!

We wish to express here our deep gratitude to  IRIT and to the Toulouse University  and their teams, specially to Prof. Pascale Zaraté, and the local Organizing Committee for their great job in making this  joint-event happen so nicely.

Many Thanks!

Best Regards,
The EWG-DSS Coordinators
