EWG-DSS 30th Anniversary

Apart from being the 5th EWG-DSS annual International Conference on Decision Support System Technology, the ICDSST 2019 has also the objective of celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the EURO Working Group of Decision Support Systems EWG-DSS, created as a product of the ESI VI EURO Summer Institute on DSS, in the Madeira island in May 1989. Since then, the research area in DSS has substantially advanced and the EWG-DSS has consolidated its importance among the EURO Working Groups, by currently being one of its most stable and active groups considering its research initiatives and activities.

Since the foundation of the EWG-DSS, the number of members has substantially grown along the years. Now we are over 320 registered members coming from various nationalities. There has also been established quiet a few well-qualified research co-operations within the group members, which have generated valuable contributions to the DSS field in journal publications.

Most of the participants of the original DSS EURO Summer Institute in Madeira in 1989 are expected to take part in the EWG-DSS 30th Anniversary Celebration!

If you are one of the EWG-DSS founding members, do not wait to be contacted first. Get in touch for arrangements of your participation in the ICDSST 2019!
