Special Issue "Artificial Intelligence and Decision Support Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 August 2020.
Interests: decision support system; decision making; MCDA; fuzzy logic; artificial intelligence
Intelligent decision support systems are used to make better reliable decisions. However, it is a tough challenge because it requires the engagement of many opposing criteria. In addition to classical multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) methods, artificial intelligence (AI) methods are also used. The modern approach involves using artificial intelligence methods for handling uncertainty data.
In both individual and group decision-making, attention must be paid to the complexity of the decision-making problem itself, and, thus, to the procedure complexity that is designed to select the best decisions from a set of candidate solutions or to establish a ranking. Moreover, new methods and modifications of existing ones are realized to utilize uncertain data to obtain reliable rankings effectively.
Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to present the latest developments in artificial intelligence, MCDM methods, and new algorithms for decision support systems. Investigators in the field are invited to contribute their original, unpublished theoretical, and applied works. Both research and review papers are welcome.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Artificial intelligence methods and applications:
- Fuzzy sets
- Interval arithmetic
- Intuistionic fuzzy sets
- Hesitant fuzzy sets
- Machine learning
- Deep learning
Decision support systems:
- New MCDM methods
- Selection problem
- Sustainable development
- Uncertain decision problems
- Imprecise decision problems

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
