Multiple Criteria Decision Making
About the Community
The purpose of the Section on Multiple Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) is to promote and disseminate research and applications among academics and other professionals interested in theory, methodologies, and applications of MCDM. The Section has an interdisciplinary and broad focus on different methodologies, such as multiple objective optimization (including Goal Programming and Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization) and discrete choice problems (including the outranking methods and the optimization-based interactive methods), and the support for the decision maker and the decision making process in such problems with computer-based models. The key issue is the tradeoff between multiple objectives, whether in an optimization context or a discrete choice context. The Section aims to be a meeting ground for both researchers and practitioners interested in MCDM.
