BCD 2021 Special Sessions

Special Session 1: Multi-Goal Decision Making Techniques and its Applications

Topic Description

In practical applications in nature and society, semi-structured and unstructured decision-making issues involve multiple criteria (or goals) that may conflict with each other. The success of decision-making lies in whether mangers, administrators, supervisors, and other decision makers can comprehensively consider and understand the insight of future for making the best decision-making planning and choice. Multiple-criteria decision making (MCDM), multiple-objective decision making (MODM), multiple-attribute decision making (MADM) are used to lead decision makers to analyze multiple-goal optimization issues from various perspectives.

The evaluation and selection methods (e.g. analytical hierarchy process (AHP), fuzzy AHP, analytical network process (ANP), fuzzy ANP, decision making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL), fuzzy DEMATEL, Choquet integral, etc.) are important tools for MCDM, MODM, and MADM. Furthermore, these methods can be employed to explore the relationship structure among criteria for a variety of related issues arising from the nature and society fields. For instance, MCDM, MODM, and MADM methods can be applied to the evaluation of new technologies adoption based on limited resources, the evaluation of new development investments, the priority of resource allocation, etc.

This special session named “Multi-Goal Decision Making for Applications” in BCD2021 will solicit papers on various disciplines of multi-goal decision making applications, including but not limited to:

  • Applications of multiple-criteria decision making methods
