Purpose and historyMulticriteria decision aiding is an important branch of Operational Research. Beyond the exchanges and meetings which already exist by means of international conferences and publications in scientific journals, the objectives of the working group are the following:

  • to contribute to the development, at a European level, of an original way of thinking in the field of multicriteria decision aiding;

  • to allow each member of the group to present to others methodological, theoretical or applied results, to submit his/her own work and thoughts to tcritical discussion by the group, and also to facilitate collaboration;

  • to develop multicriteria aid for decisions by facilitating contact between all people interested in the subject, and by stimulating continuity and progress in exchanges and work;

  • to keep the group alive and open by means of bi-annual meetings which should not be mini-conferences but real meetings favourable to exchanges and to the emergence of new ideas.

The working group was created at EURO I (Brussels, 1975). Since that time, two meetings are held each year, in Spring and Autumn. The 60 meetings have been organised by members from 16 different countries.
MembersThe current membership is 400. In 1975, the group consisted of 29 members from 5 different countries. Among the present members, 42 were already members in 1980. Currently, 38 countries are represented. During recent years, each meeting attracted 5 to 20 new members (with an average of 13). These figures show how lively the group is terms of meetings and participation.
