Call for papers:

IDC-2019 Special Session on Intelligent Distributed Decision Support Systems (IDDSS) aims to serve as a platform for multi-disciplinary discussions on:

•  the problems of IDDSS multi-criteria analysis and synthesis;

•  the problems of proactive control and management of IDDSS development under the conditions of a priori uncertainty and unforeseen failures;

• the problems of formal description of all possible types control object in IDDSS by using different mathematical apparatus;

• the problems of data, information and knowledge fusion for IDDSS;

• problems of designing the new methods for the synthesis of programmes to perform the analysis of measured information that provides the interactive intellectual processing of data and knowledge about physical properties (i.e., functional, range, signal, code and integrated parameters) of IDDSS states;

• the problems of designing the new combined methods, algorithms and techniques for solving the tasks of complex objects monitoring and controlling in different kinds of the situation centers;

• the problems of optimal IDDSS structure-dynamics control programs selection;

• the problems of IDDSS configuration and reconfiguration at different states of the environment;

• the problems of parametric and structural adaptation of models describing IDDSS structure-dynamics process;

• the problems of IDDSS implementation in  various applied areas.
