he EURO Working Group on Decision Support Systems invites you to participate in the ICDSST 2019 International Conference on Decision Support System Technology on “Decision Support Systems – Main Developments & Future Trends” in the Madeira Island, Portugal. The Conference will be hosted at the UMA University of Madeira, during the period of May 27th to May 29th, 2019.

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. The organization of the ICDSST 2019 in Madeira aims at recapitulating the developments of the Decision Support Systems area in the last 30 years, as well as enforcing the trends and new technologies in use, so that a consensus about the appropriate steps to be taken in future DSS research work can be established.

The Organizing Committee of the ICDSST 2019 invites researchers, developers and specialists in the related areas of decision making, including its methodologies and technologies, as well as application oriented practitioners directed to the implementation of solutions for DSS challenges to submit their work to the ICDSST 2019.
