Ladies and Gentelmen,

International Workshop on Multiple Criteria Decision Making is a scientific event organized every two years by Department of Operations Research, University of Economics in Katowice, Poland. It is devoted to the theory and applications in the field of multiobjective optimization, goal programming and multiple criteria decision aid. The IWoMCDM papers discus various practical problems solved by MCDM methods in the area of economics and also in construction ecology, transportation, health care, education and others. IWoMCDM papers, after the blind review process, are published in the Multiple Criteria Decision Making journal.

IWoMCDM has been organized from 2005 and accompanies Polish National Conference on Preference Modeling and Risk. In the both events more than 100 participants usually take part, which gives an opportunity to discuss and solve scientific problems in a circle of professionals or start the cooperation and joint future research. The conference venue is in Ustroń, a nice small town at the foot of Beskidy Mountains, giving opportunity for recreation in postsession time. The whole Beskidy region is rich in places of interest the participants may visit taking part in the social events that accompany the IWoMCDM.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Ustroń in April 2017!

Tadeusz Trzaskalik
