Session 2010 : April 9-14,
2010, Estoril, Lisbon, Portugal
Organizing and scientific committee:
José Rui Figueira
(CEG-IST, Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal), António Carvalho

programme is an activity of the COST Action IC0602 “Algorithmic Decision Theory”
It is also supported by the Centre for Management Studies (CEG-IST) at Instituto
Superior Técnico (IST) and Tagus Park Campus of IST. It is the fourth doctoral
school organised by the COST Action IC0602 (the first took place in Han sur
Lesse, Belgium, in September 2007, the second one in Troina, Sicily, Italy,
April 2008, the third one at Cork, Ireland, April 2009; see more in
Promote recent research results obtained in the field of Computational
Social Choice and Algorithmic Decision Theory
Develop contacts and collaboration among young researchers in this field.
students engaged in decision theory or decision support, understood in a broad
sense (i.e. computational social choice theory, multiple criteria decision
analysis including multi-objective optimization, decision under risk and
uncertainty, algorithmic decision theory, welfare economics, etc.)
stay, up to 30 selected doctoral students will receive intensive training in
three selected topics dispensed by three well-known scholars in the field of
computational social choice; the participants will be given an opportunity to
present their own work and receive a feedback. Additional senior researchers
will stay for one or two days and give a talk. All presentations and discussions
will be in English.
participants will be accomodated at the Eden Hotel located in Estoril (http://www.portugalvirtual.pt/_lodging/costadelisboa/estoril/estoril.eden/index.html),
a small city around 25 kilometres far from Lisbon. The working sessions will
take place in the hotel, as well as the meals. From the airport, the hotel can
be reached by bus-subway-train, bus-train, or taxi (more information will be
provided in the site of the hotel).
Sketch of the programme:
a typical day
will consist of two lectures of two hours. Confirmed talks by:
About three hours will be devoted to
presentation and discussion of their research by the participants. Five senior
researchers will visit the School and deliver short lectures.
The School is supported by the COST Action IC0602 “Algorithmic Decision Theory”.
Other sponsors are CEG-IST and IST-Taguspark. The fee for students is 225 € for
the entire stay (full pension). Travel expenses are not covered by the
students, especially those in early stages of their research, are invited to
apply for participation to the School by sending a short CV that mention their
background and their research interests and/or achievements. Applications must
be sent by the
end of January, 2010
Rui Figueira (firstname.lastname@example.org).The
scientific committee will select the participants on the basis of their research
interests and records. Priority will be given to students from countries

previous schools can apply again although priority will be given to new
applications. Applicants will be informed of the decision of the committee
by February 20, 2010.
