The International Research Group on Algorithmic Decision Theory in collaboration with the European working group on preference handling is proud to announce the Fifth International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory (ADT 2017).

ADT seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners coming from diverse areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Database Systems, Operations Research, Decision Theory, Discrete Mathematics, Game Theory, Multiagent Systems, Computational Social Choice, Argumentation Theory, and Theoretical Computer Science in order to improve the theory and practice of modern decision support. Some of the scientific challenges facing the ADT community include big preference data, combinatorial structures, partial and/or uncertain information, distributed decision making, and large user bases. Such challenges occur in real-world decision making in domains like electronic commerce, recommender systems, argumentation tools, network optimization (communication, transport, energy), risk assessment and management, and e-government.

ADT provides a multi-disciplinary forum for sharing knowledge in this area with a special focus on algorithmic issues in Decision Theory. The first four International Conferences on Algorithmic Decision Theory (ADT 2009, 2011, 2013, 2015) brought together researchers and practitioners from diverse areas of computer science, economics, and operations research from around the globe.

All papers will be peer-reviewed. The formal proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series:   LNAI image
