The EURO Working Group on Decision Support Systems (EWG-DSS) was founded with 24 participants of the EURO Summer Institute on DSS that took place at Madeira, Portugal, in May 1989. Since then, the number of EWG-DSS members has substantially grown. Now we are over 150 members coming from various nationalities. There has also been established quiet a few well-qualified research co-operations within the group members, which have generated valuable contributions to the DSS field in journal publications. Since its creation, the EWG-DSS has held annual Meetings in various European countries, and has taken active part in the many of the last EURO K Conferences, organizing streams on decision-making related subjects.

The main purpose of the EWG-DSS is to establish a platform for encouraging state-of-the-art high quality research and collaboration work within the DSS community.  Other aims of the  EWG-DSS are to:

  • Encourage the exchange of information among practitioners, end-users, and researchers in the area of Decision Systems.
  • Enforce  the networking among the DSS communities available and facilitate activities that are essential for the start-up of  international cooperation research and projects.
  • Facilitate professional academic and industrial opportunities for its members.
  • Favour the development of  innovative models, methods and tools in the field Decision Support and related areas.
  • Actively promote the interest on Decision Systems in the scientific community by organizing dedicated workshops, seminars, mini-conferences and conference streams in major conferences, as well as editing special and contributed issues  in  relevant scientific journals.
