25th Mini-EURO Conference on
Uncertainty and Robustness in Planning and Decision Making

http://www.inescc.pt/urpdm2010

University of Coimbra, Portugal
15-17 April 2010

with the support of the COST Action IC0602 on Algorithmic Decision 
Theory and EURO (The European Association of Operational Research 
Societies)


Scope and objectives
Uncertainty and risk are pervasive issues in planning and decision 
making tasks. With a wide range of causes and types of uncertainty, 
there are correspondingly many approaches to their treatment in 
decision analysis and optimization models. Some are tackled through 
discussion and creativity techniques to help decision makers set the 
boundaries of their problem; others are tackled through modelling 
techniques, e.g. probability, to reflect the randomness in the external 
world; yet others are approached through the use of sensitivity and 
robustness studies to explore the possible consequences of lack of 
precision in data estimates and judgments.

Different research communities address uncertainty issues in planning 
and decision making using different approaches, which often present 
similarities although being developed under distinct perspectives. 
There is a clear need for more work in the interfaces between these 
approaches for dealing creatively and effectively with different types 
of uncertainty in different contexts, also having in mind real-world 
applications.

This Conference is aimed at bringing together the specific expertise in 
aspects of handling uncertainty within decision support models to build 
a more comprehensive overview and integrated methodologies to tackle 
the various sources and types of uncertainties at stake in optimization 
and decision problems. The Conference will provide a forum in which 
researchers coming from different scientific disciplines and areas can 
discuss and share their experience regarding methodological approaches 
to tackle uncertainty for obtaining robust conclusions in decision 
support models and their applications.

Contributions from decision theory, Bayesian analysis, fuzzy sets, 
rough sets, risk analysis, stochastic programming, sensitivity 
analysis, robustness analysis, interval programming, inexact 
programming, constraint programming, evolutionary algorithms and 
meta-heuristics, multi-criteria analysis and multi-objective 
optimization, among others, are expected both from methodological and 
application perspectives, thus paving the way for a cross-fertilization 
between distinct ways to incorporate the treatment of uncertainty in 
optimization and decision support models.

This event follows up the successful conference on "Managing 
Uncertainty in Decision Support Models" that was held in 2004.
