Aim:The development of formal mathematical models to support experts in making decisions is of great importance to assure the validity of the actions derived from a decision outcome is theoretically sound. This is of special relevance in decision contexts where the information on the problem at hand is not amenable to be modelled in a quantitative and precise way. Another issue to be addressed is that of inconsistency of information and the dynamic nature of the decision making process itself. This type of decision-making is now being described as decision-making under uncertainty in inconsistent and dynamic environments.
This special session aims at gathering researchers with an interest in the research area described above. Specifically, we are interested in contributions towards the development of consensus models for such decision-making problems, as well as formal approaches that are able to support incomplete or missing information. Contributions to this special session are expected to pay special attention to the rigorous motivation of the approaches put forward and to support all aspects of the models developed with a corresponding theoretical sound framework. Straight approaches lacking such scientific approach are discouraged.
Scope:Indicative, but not complete, lists of topics covered in this focus session include:
- Consensus in group decision-making
- Consistency in fuzz preference modeling
- Missing preferences in fuzzy decision-making
- Aggregation of fuzzy preferences
- Consensus measures
- Consensus and fuzzy ontologies
- Consensus software tools
- Fuzzy decision in Web 2.0
