14th International Conference on Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge-Based Systems

Catania, Italy, July 9-13, 2012

 

 

CALL FOR PAPERS

 

Special session on

Computing with Words and Decision Making

 

 

Decision making is inherent to mankind, as human beings daily face situations in which they should choose among different alternatives by means of reasoning and mental processes. Many of these decision problems are under uncertain environments with vague and imprecise information. This type of information is usually modeled by linguistic information because of the common use of language by the experts involved in the given decision situations, originating linguistic decision making. The use of linguistic information in decision making demands processes of Computing with Words to solve the related decision problems. Different methodologies and approaches have been proposed to accomplish such processes in an accurate and interpretable way. The good performance of linguistic computing dealing with uncertainty has caused a spread use of it in different types of decision based applications.

This invited session aims at providing an opportunity for researchers working in both research areas to discuss the state-of-the-art science and technologies, and their applications, to share their new ideas, original research results and practical experiences.

More specifically, we expect you to have any contribution with the focus on the use of computing with words models in decision making.

For the practical organization of the session, we would appreciate your contribution. We would take advantage of the outcome of this session to join researchers from both areas for future cooperation and joint research.
