Call for Papers: DSS’2012 – 16th IFIP WG8.3 International Conference on Decision Support Systems, Anávissos, Greece, June 28-30 2012

Conference theme: “Fusing DSS into the Fabric of the Context”

June 24, 2011 -- The first call for papers has been issued for DSS 2012 in Anávissos, Greece, June 28-30, 2012. The aim of the IFIP Working Group 8.3 DSS’2012 open conference is to explore the modern perspective of the fusion view on information systems and the implications of this view for decision support systems. In this view systems should achieve a total alignment with the context and the personal preferences of users. The advantage of such a view is an opportunity of seamless integration between enterprise environment and information systems components. The conference solicits papers that describe the application of fusion principles on decision support systems research and practice. It is timely to explore the socio-technical approaches for fusing decision support, as well as opportunities and obstacles for achieving a total fusion of DSS systems in various contexts.

Submissions from academics and practitioners are invited. Papers describing real case studies will be most welcomed. All submitted manuscripts will be double blind peer-reviewed in full by at least two reviewers and members of the Program Committee. The acceptance of the contributions will be based on the originality of the work, the relevance for the conference theme and overall quality.

Suggested research topics include, but are not limited to:

Researching fusing DSS into the Fabric of the Context

New methodological approaches for DSS

DSS fusion into supply chain management

DSS fusion for on-line business management

Conference Venue:

Anávissos (Anavyssos) is linked to Athens by a major motorway (GR-91). It’s also a short trip (25km) from the new airport, and 30km to Larion harbour. Mountains surround the town and a small plain is in the middle. Pine forests are in the west. Anavyssos offers a beach with a number of restaurants and bars and a spectacular view across the Saronic Gulf to the island of Aegina. The town itself is two kilometres inland from the beaches. It has a square, a school and an amusement park which is sometimes used. The town has authentic and really hospitable inhabitants and tourist-friendly atmosphere.
