First Workshop on Multicriteria Modelling in Telecommunication Network Planning and Design - Description

Description


Scope
Telecommunication systems and network technologies and the associated services have been and are in a process of very rapid evolution. Major changes in telecommunication system technologies and service offerings are currently underway. The evolution of telecommunication networks is a process of paramount importance not only because of the large investments required but also due to its significant impacts on the economic activities and on the society as a whole. The development of these networks gives rise to a variety of complex multidimensional problems. Therefore, the interaction between a complex socio-economic environment and the extremely fast pace of development of new telecommunication technologies and services justify the interest of multicriteria modelling in decision making processes associated with several phases of network planning and design. The workshop is essentially focused on works presenting developments on multicriteria models for dealing with telecommunication design and planning problems and the discussion of issues related to the advantages and difficulties concerning the models and their applications. The major objective of the workshop is to provide, once a year a one-day forum for discussion of a subject with increasing importance in the future.
