[DMANET] Fourth CFP: Deadline extended for ADT 2017 -- the 5th International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory, Luxembourg, 25--27 October 2017

Dear colleagues,

due to numerous requests the deadline for ADT 2017 has been extended
(see below), and I apologize for cross-postings:

Call for Papers: ADT 2017 Third Announcement

The International Research Group on Algorithmic Decision Theory
(CNRS/GDRI ALGODEC) in collaboration with the EURO working group on
preference handling and the Computer Science and Communications
Research Unit (CSC) of the University of Luxembourg is proud to

ADT 2017, the 5th International Conference on
Algorithmic Decision Theory
Luxembourg, 25--27 October 2017

The ADT 2017 conference seeks to bring together researchers and
practitioners coming from diverse areas such as Artificial
Intelligence, Database Systems, Operations Research, Discrete
Mathematics, Theoretical Computer Science, Decision Theory, Game
Theory, Multiagent Systems, Computational Social Choice, Argumentation
Theory, and Multiple Criteria Decision Aiding in order to improve the
theory and practice of modern decision support. Some of the scientific
challenges facing the Algorithmic Decision Theory (ADT) community
include big preference data, combinatorial structures, partial and/or
uncertain information, distributed decision making, and large user
bases. Such challenges occur in real-world decision making in domains
like electronic commerce, recommender systems, argumentation tools,
network optimization (communication, transport, energy), risk
assessment and management, and e-government.

ADT 2017 provides a multi-disciplinary forum for sharing knowledge in
this area with a special focus on algorithmic issues in Decision
Theory. The first four International Conferences on Algorithmic
Decision Theory (ADT 2009 Venice, ADT 2011 Rutgers (DIMACS), ADT 2013
Brussels, ADT 2015 Lexington (Kentucky US)) brought together
researchers and practitioners from diverse areas of computer science,
economics, and operations research from around the globe.

Important Dates:

Title and abstract submission (DEADLINE EXTENDED): April 9, 2017 (23:59 GMT)
Full paper submission (DEADLINE EXTENDED): April 18, 2017 (23:59 GMT)
Notification: May 14, 2017
Final version of accepted papers: June 2, 2017
ADT 2017 Tutorial and Doctoral Consortium day: October 24, 2017
ADT 2017 Conference: October 25--27, 2017

Keynote Speakers:

Eleni Pratsini, Lab Director, IBM Research -- Ireland
Tentative title: Algorithmic Decision Theory and IoT

Carmine Ventre, Teesside University, Middlesbrough, UK
Tentative title: Novel Mechanism Design Paradigms

Toby Walsh, Data61 and University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia
Tentative title: Deceased Organ Matching in Australia

Submission (according to one of the following two types):

1. Submissions for proceedings: Submissions are invited on
significant, original, and previously unpublished research on all
aspects of Algorithmic Decision Theory. Papers must be at most 15
pages long in the LNCS format (including references). The formal
proceedings of ADT 2017 will be published by Springer Verlag in the
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series:
Papers of this type will be accepted for either oral or poster
presentation, or both. However, no distinction will be made
between accepted papers in the conference proceedings.

2. Submissions without proceedings: Submissions are invited on
significant recent results on Algorithmic Decision Theory. Papers
must be at most 15 pages long (including references). They will not
appear in the proceedings and can be submitted elsewhere. Selected
papers in this category will be accepted for either oral or poster
presentation, or both. Authors are required to write "submission
without proceedings" into the author field of their paper (instead
of author names) if they choose this category; otherwise, it will
be assumed by default that their paper is submitted in the first
category (submissions for proceedings).

For both types of submission, please use Springer's guidelines and
technical instructions for the preparation of contributions that can
be downloaded from:
and note that at least one author of each accepted paper is required
to attend the conference to present the work. Authors will be required
to agree to this requirement at the time of submission.

All papers will be peer-reviewed by a double-blind procedure. Therefore,
papers must be submitted *anonymously* as pdf via the EasyChair system:
Note that you will need to give the author names in the EasyChair system,
but reviewers will not be able to get any information about the authors.
Therefore, it is important and required that authors do not reveal their
identities in submitted papers.
