E F D A N '96

European Workshop on Fuzzy Decision Analysis for Management,
Planning and Optimization

Honorary Chair: Chair:
Lotfi A. Zadeh Rudolf Felix
University of California, Berkeley Informatik Centrum Dortmund ICD e. V.

EFDAN '96 will be held on May 21- 22, 1996
in the Goldsaal an den Westfalenhallen Dortmund Germany.

On May 20, 1996 tutorials are offered.


Both management-oriented and technical decision analysis demand
the capability to solve optimization and selection problems.
In recent years fuzzy decision analysis gained importance as an
efficient method for management, planning and optimization.

Like a similar German event held in Dortmund in 1995, EFDAN '96
aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in the
field of fuzzy decision analysis in order to present recent results
and to exchange their views on developments and future directions.
