10th European Decision Sciences Conference

2 – 5 June 2019

Connectivity is a defining characteristic of the world in the 21st century and provides the backdrop theme for EDSI 2019. Advances in IT and communications technologies, combined with the all-pervasive access to  information, offer almost unlimited opportunities to individuals, societies, businesses, institutions, and government. However, our information-rich, connected world is generating many new problems and challenges. We are in a transition phase in seeking to adapt to the ‘anywhere, anytime, any device’ world. We need to rethink and re-examine the conceptual models, the decision patterns, the networks (both physical and virtual), and the  behaviours that have guided us thus far in order to provide knowledge and guidance relevant to researchers, managers and policy makers to navigate the future.
