the workshops consist of a series of introductory lectures
(selected from a set of 12 presentations) on day 1,
followed by a set of practical model/DSS demo examples on the second day.
The sessions cover basic decision making concepts and termoinology,
basic apporaches from simple information systems to stochastic optimization
with multiple criteria and mutiple objectives,
multi-attribute decision theory, economic valuation methods,
group decision making, game theory, uncertainty and risk management.
The demo cases discussed are made available on-line to all
registered workshop participants with Email based tutor support
for the participants to keep working with.
The objective is to introduce the potential of DSS tools,
illustrate the scope and benefits of possible applications,
but also their limitations, data requirements, and infrastructure and
institutional requirements, but in general get the participants interested
in active participation, including the exploratory application of the
on-line tools for any specific problem or project.
All hands-on exercises and demos use web-based
interactive models and DSS tools that can be used from any PC with a standard
web browser and Internet connection.
These tools and all teaching materials are made available to all
registered workshop participants also before and after the workshop,
for the duration of the consultancy assignment,
for all registered participants from the workshops with
eMail-based tutor support.
