Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Data-driven decision making under uncertainty (D3U) practically means extracting data and information, including from Big Data, to make decisions in areas such as emergency response and healthcare to renewable energy. D3U is driven by the advancements afforded through Industry 4.0 worldwide, and the power of hardware handling offered through Cloud and Fog computing and the like. In times of adverse situations, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, crucial issues such as predictive bed allocation, predicting the spread and the stages of the pandemic and so on, have made D3U an inevitable part of life. It is also thus becoming an ardent necessity to deal with challenges such as uncertainty, vagueness, and hesitation in order to come up with rational decisions.

All nations are also striving to achieve eco-environmental conservation, particularly ISO 14000 and ISO 14001, with industries focusing on sustenance and green habits, calling for the furthering of research in these areas.

In this Special Issue, we welcome both conceptual and empirical, as well as qualitative and quantitative research papers that focus on novel ways of exploring private and public data to derive innovative insights in various domains.
