Jointly sponsored by IFIP WG 8.3 and AIS SIGDSS

Paris, June 28, 2013 -- Technology advances over the last several years has given rise to a variety of new and advanced methods that can assist decision making. The International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) working group 8.3 and the Association for Information Systems (AIS) Special Interest Group on Decision Support, Knowledge and Data Management System (SIGDSS) are jointly sponsoring an open conference June 2-5, 2014 at Universite Pierre et Marie Curie - Campus Jussieu, Paris, France. This is the 16th IFIP WG 8.3 Open Conference and it continues the SIGDSS International Conference on Decision Support Systems (ICDSS) tradition.

Paper submission: January 15, 2014

Workshop proposal submission: January 15, 2014

DSS are smarter with the introduction of artificial intelligence, more timely with real-time data, more accurate with data mining and ‘big data’ methods, more strategic with data from many sources, more precise with the availability of functional data, more inclusive with social networking, and media rich with video and audio. The 2014 Open Conference of the IFIP WG 8.3 and ICDSS will focus on the theme "DSS 2.0 – Supporting decision making with new technologies"

The IFIP TC8/Working Group 8.3 conferences present the latest innovations and achievements of academic communities on Decision Support Systems (DSS). These advances include theory, systems, computer aided methods, algorithms, techniques, applications and technologies supporting decision making.

The Special Interest Group on Decision Support, Knowledge and Data Management Systems (SIGDSS) is organized under the auspices of the Association for Information Systems (AIS) since 2001. SIGDSS is a forum for members to discuss, develop, and promote issues, ideas and research related to using Information Technologies to support decision-makers and improve decision processes in businesses and organizations. SIGDSS organizes international conferences under the International Conference on DSS (ICDSS).

Paper submissions from academics and practitioners are invited, and showcases of real case studies will be especially welcomed. Papers will be peer-reviewed. The acceptance of the contributions will be based on the originality of the work, the relevance for the conference theme and its overall quality.

Suggested research topics include theoretical, empirical, design science research, and case-based approaches in:

1.    Decision Support Systems
2.    Decision models in the real-world
3.    Executive Information Systems
4.    Negotiation Support Systems
5.    Knowledge Management
6.    Knowledge and resource discovery
7.    Business intelligence and data warehousing
8.    Group Support Systems
9.    Collaborative decision making
10.   Analytics and ‘big data’
11.   Rich language for decision support
12.   Multimedia tools for DSS
13.   Web 2.0 Systems in decision support
14.   Context-based technologies for decision making
15.   Intelligent systems and technologies in decision support
16.   Organizational decision support
17.   Research methods in DSS 2.0
18.   Mobile DSS
19.   Competing on analytics

Conference Publications

Intending participants in DSS2014 are invited to submit papers for consideration for presentation at the conference and publication in its proceedings. Submitted manuscripts must be original contributions that have not been previously published.

The conference proceedings will be published electronically with an ISBN as part of the registration fee by IOS Press as book chapters in the Frontiers of Artificial Intelligence and Applications (FAIA) series provided that at least one author is registered and available to present the paper. Each paper must have a unique registration in order to be published, and the registered author will receive a USB of the proceedings. FAIA is indexed in SciVerse Scopus, ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar and Zentralblatt MATH, and in previous years in ISI Conference Proceedings Citation Index, CPCi (T-R decides on a year by year basis which conferences to index). A hard cover version of the book will be available for separate purchase.

Following a tradition of the IFIP WG8.3 and SIGDSS conferences, authors of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions to special issues of international scientific journals such as GDN, JDSST, JDS and IDT.

Submission categories

All accepted papers, posters and workshops descriptions will be published in the proceedings, provided that they are received by the due date of final version of accepted papers and are formatted as specified on the conference website.
