On behalf of the CoP on Forest Management Decision Support Systems (www.forestdss.org) we are pleased to invite you to contribute with your research to a special session of the ICDSST 2017 EWG-DSS 2017 International Conference on Decision Support System Technology ((https://icdsst2017.wordpress.com/) to be held in Namur, Belgium, during 29-31 May 2017.
The special session ‘The use of DSS in forest resources management and policy analysis’ aims at presenting and discussing the state-of-the-art on the use of DSS in the forest sector and it will include oral presentations as well as posters to be selected according to the relevance for the topic. This year conference´s theme is Data, Information and Knowledge Visualisation in Decision Making. Decision makers are facing many challenges in managing forest resources in a sustainable manner and addressing the rising demands from society. Although the consideration of the interactions in spatial and temporal contexts between society and forest resource management is complex, there is a need for easy to use decision support tools which help with data, knowledge and decisions visualisation. The special session of the ICDSST 2017 conference will explore these challenges and discuss options for smart solutions. Kindly upload your full papers, short papers or abstracts for the session.
For paper submission follows: Submissions (Check Forest DSS as Topic in the submission form)
We look forward to your confirmed presence at the ICDSST 2017.
