ICDSST-2015 – Call for Papers (pdf file)

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit  full papers or short papers to the EWG-DSS 1st International Conference on Decision Support Systems Technology ICDSST-2015 on Big Data Analytics for Decision Making” that will be hosted at the University of Belgrade, in cooperation with its Faculty of Organizational Sciences Belgrade,

The ICDSST-2015 is organized by the  EWG-DSS – EURO Working Group on Decision Support Systems and sponsored by EURO – the Association of European Operational Research Societies. The EWG-DSS has already established a recognized tradition is organizing high level conferences and workshops concerning themes of Decision Support Systems, their applications and development approaches. More details about all the organized events of the EWG-DSS can be found in the link: https://ewgdss.wordpress.com/workshops/.

The ICDSST-2015 on “Big Data Analytics for Decision Making” will focus on Decision-Making challenges regarding the emerging Big Data revolution. Especially in terms of the complex, huge-volume and high-velocity required data analytics. Further, there is a high potential in developing novel Decision Support Systems and tools to deal with Big Data decision-making problems.

OPEN DEADLINES FOR SUBMISSIONS: 10.04.2015 (Short Papers) & 17.04.2015  (Posters)

The EWG-DSS  series of International Conferences on Decision Support Systems Technology (ICDSST), starting with the ICDSST-2015 in Belgrade, were planned to consolidate the tradition of annual research events organized by the EURO EWG-DSS group. The ICDSST Conferences offer the European and International DSS Communities, including the academic and the industrial sectors, opportunities to present state-of-the-art DSS developments and to discuss about the current challenges that surround Decision-Making processes, focusing on realistic but innovative solutions; as well as on potential new business opportunities.

The main purpose of the EWG-DSS International Conference on Decision Support Systems Technology (ICDSST 2015), with its main theme on “Big Data Analytics for Decision Making”, is to attract researchers, developers and specialists of the related areas of decision-making, its methodologies and technologies; as well as application oriented practitioners directed to the implementation of big data analytics solutions, to get together in order to exchange experiences and identify the key issues within various decision-making application areas, so that exploitation of new approaches and tools for dealing with Big Data in Decision Making processes can be effectively implemented in future developments.

The ICDSST 2015 promises to offer a pleasant working environment for all participants, within the beautiful spring time of Belgrade in May.
