Special session on


  Fuzzy Decision Making:

Novel Approaches


The fuzzy set theory has been widely used in many different fields but one of the most useful fields of its applications it has been decision making due to its ability to represent some type of decision problems common in real world that often involves vague and uncertain information; having providing not only a large number of models and tools but also successful practical results.

These decision models and tools have used classically fuzzy concepts as type I fuzzy sets, but recently fuzzy linguistic approaches, type-II fuzzy sets and other extensions and generalizations such as intuitionistic fuzzy sets, hesitant fuzzy sets and so forth have boosted the field producing quite interesting a novel research in fuzzy decision making.

This invited session aims at providing an opportunity for researchers working in both research areas, fuzzy set theory and decision making, 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 theory and practice instances of integrating fuzzy technology, one of the main Soft Computing constituent techniques, into decision models to better solve those engineering, mathematical, and managerial problems involving uncertainty. Topics of interest for this special session include but are not limited to:

  • Fuzzy Group Decision Making
  • Large Scale Fuzzy Decision Making
  • Fusing Linguistic Information in Decision Making
  • Fuzzy Multi Criteria Decision Making
  • Fuzzy Consensus Reaching Processes
  • Fusion Methods for Decision Making
  • Multi-Level Fusion for Decision Making
  • Intelligent Decision Support Systems
  • Dynamic Decision Making
  • Fuzzy Decision making in Engineering evaluation, resource management and transfer, Industry applications, sensory evaluation, evaluation and  recommenda-tion,  Investments applications and risk assessment, …

 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.

Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts to the invited session on Fuzzy Decision Making: Novel Approaches. All papers submitted in this session will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

We expect you to submit a tentative title of your paper and your contact details for this session before 20th December, 2014


Please submit your full paper contribution before January 16th, 2015 by sending a copy by email: herrera@decsai.ugr.es, martin@ujaen.es, i.palomares-carrascosa@ulster.ac.uk
