We're happy to announce Bocconi Univesity's Fabio Angelo Maccheroni as the keynote speaker at the 84th meeting of the European Working Group on Multicriteria Decision Making. Prof. Maccheroni will be speaking on "Model Uncertainty, Robustness, and Multi Criteria Decision Analysis". Here a preview:

ABSTRACT In most decision problems consequences of the various alternative actions depend on states determined by a generative mechanism representing some physical or social phenomenon. Model uncertainty arises because decision makers may not know this mechanism. Two types of uncertainty result, aleatory uncertainty within models and model uncertainty across them.

This talk addresses the recent developments of the field with a special focus on the need for robustness and discusses some implications for Multi Criteria Decision Analysis.
