Workshop on Data-Driven Decision Guidance and Support Systems (DGSS)
In conjunction with the 29th IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering 
(ICDE 2013)
http://dgss.vse.gmu.edu/    (02)

Brisbane, Australia
Either 8 or 12 April 2013 (to be confirmed)     (03)

You are invited to participate in the upcoming Workshop on Data-Driven Decision 
Guidance and Support Systems (DGSS), to be held as part of the 28th IEEE 
International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2012) in Brisbane, 
Australia, on April 8-12, 2013. Brisbane is the capital city of the state of 
Queensland. The conference will be held at the Sofitel Hotel in the center of 
Brisbane.    (04)

Decision support systems (DSS) are widely used to support business or 
organizational decision-making. They are used to inform decisions at the 
management, operations and planning levels of an organization. Decision 
guidance systems (DGS) are decision support systems that go beyond organizing 
and displaying information, providing actionable recommendations to and 
extracting knowledge from human decision-makers.    (05)

Decision Guidance and Support Systems (DGSS) often need to: 
        -       use and mine large amounts of data collected from multiple 
        -       learn deterministic or stochastic models of underlying 
processes from historical data 
        -       learn objectives or decision preferences from decision makers' 
        -       perform optimization under diverse constraints, e.g., from 
business or engineering limitations and laws of nature, and 
        -       present and justify actionable recommendations to decision 
makers.    (06)


This workshop will bring together DGSS researchers and practitioners to present 
novel methodologies, models, algorithms, systems, tools, applications and case 
studies of DGSS. Most importantly, the workshop will be a forum to discuss how 
to utilize advances from multiple disciplines for building DGSS that can 
intelligently merge human knowledge and expertise with formal mathematical 
models to make better decisions. The workshop will include both formal 
presentations and informal discussion of important research directions in DGSS, 
and their interactions with Knowledge and data engineering.    (08)

TOPICS    (09)

The areas below are intended as general guidance.  Contributions are welcome on 
any topic related to DGSS and any domain using DGSS.    (010)

* Fundamental technical challenges for DGSS
  - Knowledge management for DGSS
  - Advanced analytics for managerial DGSS
  - Data Warehousing, Analytics and Big Data for DGSS
  - Cloud computing and DGSS
  - Learning agents for DGSS
  - Business intelligence for DGSS
  - Data mining and knowledge discovery for DGSS
  - Regression, time series, and other statistical methods for DGSS
  - Optimization methods for DGSS
  - Knowledge and resource discovery for DGSS
  - Uncertain and probabilistic data use for DGSS    (011)

* DGSS for different categories of decision
  - Support for recommender systems
  - Support for negotiation
  - Decision dynamics, processes and issues for decisions with multiple 
  - Group, distributed, and collaborative DGSS
  - Crowd-sourcing and collective intelligence for DGSS
  - DGSS for strategic, tactical and operational level decisions
  - DGSS for social and mobile networks    (012)

* Case studies of DGSS drawn from domains such as:
  - Health care
  - Sustainable manufacturing
  - Energy efficiency and smart grid
  - Environmental systems
  - Military decision making
  - Logistics and supply chain management    (013)


October 19, 2012 - Paper submissions due
December 5, 2012 - Author notification
December 17, 2012 - Camera ready papers due
April 8, 2012 - Workshop on Decision Guidance and Support Systems    (015)


Each submission will be evaluated for acceptability by at least three members 
of the Program Committee. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance 
to the workshop theme, originality, potential significance, topicality and 
clarity. Since all accepted papers will be presented at the workshop, we 
require that at least one of the submitting authors must be a registered 
participant at the ICDE 2012 Conference, and committed to attend the DGSS 
Workshop.    (017)

Submissions to the Workshop are only accepted pdf format and should be sent via 
the workshop's submission site: http://dgss.vse.gmu.edu/submission.html. Papers 
must be formatted in the IEEE camera-ready format.  Submissions must not exceed 
12 pages, including figures. Submissions exceeding this limit will not be 
reviewed.    (018)

Following the general acceptance rules of the ICDE 2011 conference, papers 
that, at the time of submission, are under review for or have already been 
published in or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference 
will not be accepted to the DGSS workshop. Authors of papers accepted to ICDE 
2013 on a topic relevant to DGSS are invited to present a poster connecting 
their ICDE paper to to the topics of DGSS. Such authors should submit an 
abstract describing their ICDE paper and indicating its connection to DGSS.    (019)


ICDE 2011 will be a full-day workshop. The sessions will be planned in a format 
that invites an open debate and discussion of fundamental challenges of 
data-driven DGSS.  All papers accepted to the DGSS Workshop will be presented 
during the workshop and published in the workshop proceedings, which will be 
available as a separate publication after the Conference. In addition, 
technical papers accepted for presentation at the DGSS Workshop will be 
eligible for participating in an international journal special issue or in a 
post-proceedings book.    (021)
