The 11th International FLINS Conference on Decision Making and Soft Computing (FLINS2014)

                          August 17-20, 2014, João Pessoa (Paraíba), Brazil






Special session on Computing with Words for Decision Making



In many real decision situations defined under uncertain environments, with imprecise information, is straightforward the use of linguistic information due to the nature of different aspects of the decision problems. Computing with Words (CW or CWW) is a paradigm of computation whose objects are fuzzy set models of words. It emulates human cognitive processes to improve solving processes of problems dealing with uncertainty.  Consequently, CW has been applied as computational and rational basis to intelligent decision support, because it provides tools close to human beings reasoning processes related to decision making, which improve the resolution of decision making under uncertainty.


Both Decision Making and Computing with Words have recently attracted much attention in which, novel mathematical foundations and new decision models raised to be applied in different decision fields such as multi-criteria decision making, decision analysis, evaluation processes, etc. Because of this variety of disciplines, this invited session aims at providing an opportunity for researchers working this research area to discuss in fundamental, approaches, methodologies, software systems, and applications, to share their novel ideas, original research results and practical experiences. Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts to the invited session on Computing with Words for Decision Making. All papers submitted in this session will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
