Call for Papers and Sessions
The 21st century heralds an age of exponentially increasing demand for energy and transportation services in a globalised economy. Climate change and other environmental impacts of human economic activity necessitate the consideration of conflicting goals in decision making processes to develop sustainable systems. The science of multiple criteria decision making has a lot to offer in addressing this need. The International Society on Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) is organising its 19th International Conference under the theme MCDM for Sustainable Energy and Transportation Systems.
Abstracts are now called for and should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All areas of MCDM are welcome and papers related to the theme of the conference are especially encouraged.
• Multiple Criteria Decision Aiding
• Multiple Criteria Classification, Ranking, and Sorting
• Multiple Objective Continuous and Combinatorial Optimisation
• Multiple Objective Metaheuristics
• Multiple Criteria Decision Making and Preference Modelling
• Fuzzy Multiple Criteria Decision Making
(Extended) abstracts should be up to two A4 pages in 12pt font or similar. Abstracts must contain the name and affiliation of all authors, plus the email address of the corresponding author for notification of acceptance. Abstracts can be submitted in plain text, Latex, or Word formats, but postscript and pdf files are not acceptable. In order to be included in the conference programme at least one author must have registered and paid the appropriate fee.
Abstract submission deadline: 15 September 2007
Notification of acceptance: 15 October 2007
Colleagues interested in organising invited sessions should contact the organising committee at email@example.com as soon as possible.
Track on Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimisation
As part of the conference a special track on Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimisation (EMO) will be organised. EMO utilizes evolutionary computation techniques to determine/approximate Pareto optimal solutions and became very popular in recent years. Besides comparison and integration of EMO and MCDM, the track will also cover EMO algorithm developments, test problems, metrics and comparative studies for EMO as well as real-world and industrial applications of EMO algorithms. It is intended to deepen interactions and collaborations of EMO and MCDM. The EMO track is organized by Boris Naujoks, University of Dortmund, Germany. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Proceedings of the conference containing full papers of selected contributions will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems series.
Looking forward to seeing you in Auckland
