Conference Call for Papers

We are delighted to invite contributions to the 9th International Conference on

Intelligent Decision Technologies, organised by KES International. IDT-2017 is an

international scientific conference for research in the area of Intelligent Decision

Technologies with subjects considering theory and application. This conference is

dedicated to improving decision making.

The conference is interdisciplinary in nature and will consist of keynote talks, oral and

poster presentations, invited sessions and workshops, on the applications and theory

of intelligent decision systems and related areas. It will provide excellent opportunities

for the presentation of interesting new research results and discussion about them,

leading to knowledge transfer and generation of new ideas.

The conference will be co-located under the KES Smart Digital Futures umbrella

with our other Intelligent Systems conferences: IIMSS, AMSTA, SEEL and the newly

added InMED (Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare). Registration gives access to all

of these conferences, together with a paper published in one set of proceedings.




The conference proceedings will be published by Springer as book chapters in a volume

of the KES Smart Innovation Systems and Technologies series, submitted for indexing in

Scopus and Thomson-Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and the Web

of Science.

Please see the Smart Digital Futures website: for more information.
