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 discuss many various practical problems solved by MCDM methods in the area of economics and also in construction, ecology, transportation, health care, education and others.

The IWoMCDM papers, after the blind review process, are published in the international scientific journal Multiple Criteria Decision Making issued annually by the University of Economics in Katowice.

IWoMCDM has been organized since 2005 and accompanies the domestic conference on Preference Modeling and Risk. In both events more than 100 participants usually take part, which gives an opportunity to dis-cuss 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.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Ustroń in April 2019!

Tadeusz Trzaskalik
