MPREF 2020

The 12th multidisciplinary workshop on advances in preferences handling has been held virtually on August 29, 2020 as part of the workshop program of ECAI 2020. ECAI had been planned to be held in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain, but the organizers had to switch to a digital format due to the COVID-19 pandemics. The workshop has addressed all computational aspects of preference handling and has been organized by Markus Endres, Ulrich Junker, and Andreas Pfandler. Please consult the workshop web site for details about the program and the list of papers.

ADT 2019

The Sixth International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory has been held on October 25-27, 2019 at Duke University, Durham, NC, USA. The conference has been organized by Vince Conitzer, Sasa Pekec, Alexis Tsoukiàs, and K. Brent Venable. As the previous editions, the conference has brought together researchers and practitioners coming from diverse areas of Artificial Intelligence, Computer Science, Economics, and Operations Research in order to improve the theory and practice of modern decision support. The conference featured three invited talks, a tutorial, and nineteen regular presentations. The topics included preference elicitation and aggregation, voting, mechanism design and games, decision making over complex domains, and various applications. The conference proceedings have been published as Volume 11834 of the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series.

MPREF 2018

The eleventh multidisciplinary workshop on advances in preferences handling has been held in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA on February 3, 2018, in conjunction with AAAI 2018. It has been organized by Markus Endres, Nicholas Mattei, Andreas Pfandler, and K. Brent Venable. The program consisted of sixteen presentation and a panel discussion about the future of preference research. The topics of the papers included preferences in matching, markets, and games, applications of preferences, voting & preferences, preference models, preference reasoning, and preference learning.

ADT 2017

The Fifth International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory has been held on October 25 - 27, 2017 in Luxembourg and has been organized by Raymond Bisdorff (conference chair) and Jörg Rothe (program chair). The conference provided a multi-disciplinary forum to discuss algorithmic challenges of modern decision support system. The twenty-five papers covered topics such as preferences and multi-criteria decision aiding, decision making and voting, game theory and decision theory, and allocation and matching. Three invited talks provided interesting insights into novel paradigms for mechanism design, decision making in presence of the Internet of Things, and deceased organ matching. The conference furthermore included a poster session, an excellent banquet, and was preceded by a doctoral consortium. The conference proceedings have been published as Volume 10576 of the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series.

MPREF 2016

The tenth multidisciplinary workshop on advances in preferences handling has been held in New York, USA during July 9, 2016, in conjunction with IJCAI 2016. The workshop organizers have been Markus Endres, Nicholas Mattei, and Andreas Pfandler. The program consisted of an invited talk and eleven presentations, covering topics such as voting theory, mechanism design, preference aggregation, preference elicitation, preference representation, and moral preferences.
