Decision and Uncertainty

Chair: Hatem Masri, University of Bahrain, Kingdom of Bahrain

Decision making under uncertainty is choosing actions based on imperfect observations, with unknown outcomes. This track discusses challenges of decision making under uncertainty from a theoretical and modelling perspective. Papers submitted to this track may present both the theory behind decision making models and algorithms and a collection of example applications.

Track Topics:

  • Decision making under uncertainty in Business and Engineering
  • Modelling under Uncertainty
  • Simulation and Uncertainty
  • Probabilistic logics
  • Fuzzy sets and Fuzzy Logic
  • Belief functions
  • Imprecise probabilities
  • Possibility theory and Possibilistic logic
  • Rough sets
  • Description logics with uncertainty
  • Foundations of reasoning
  • Logics for reasoning under uncertainty
  • Markov decision processes
  • Uncertainty & data integration
  • Uncertainty & data mining
