The EURO Working Group on Decision Support Systems invites you to participate in  the “EWG-DSS Thessaloniki-2013 Workshop on Exploring New Directions for Decisions in the Internet Age”, which will be hosted at the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki, Greece, in cooperation with its Department of Marketing and Operations Management, during the period of May 29th to May 31st, 2013.

The purpose of this Workshop is to bring together professionals of the areas related to Decision Making and Decision Support, as well as their respective applications. Particular focus will be given to the advances on research in the field of Decision Sciences, for an innovative distributed interoperable Decision System paradigm for the Internet Age.

Members of the EWG-DSS working group are expected to participate and to encourage the participation of other related professionals, so that further collaboration can be promoted on a larger scale.


The EWG-DSS Thessaloniki-2013 Workshop on “Exploring New Directions for Decisions in the Internet Age” will particularly focus on the advances on research in the field of Decision Sciences, for meeting the challenges of paradigm shift in decision making and decision support brought by recent developments of Web 2.0 and 3.0 technologies.  Specifically, the workshop will develop a research agenda that identifies the key issues and challenges, and explores new approaches and tools for future collaborative decision making, including using social networks and Web resources, dynamic spatial-temporal decision making, and technical and social aspects of web-based decision processes.

The workshop will develop a research agenda for the new directions in decisions in Internet age and will be an enabling platform for decision scientists, computer scientists, applied mathematicians, and social scientists to devise a roadmap encouraging interdisciplinary research for the development of Web-based DSS, as well as architectures and methodologies that can specify dynamic and collaborative DSS for the Web 2.0 and 3.0.
