Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3558)


Aggregation operators, in particular, and information fusion techniques, in general are being used in several Artificial Intelligence systems for modeling decisions. In this paper we give a personal overview of current trends and challenges as well as describe our aims with respect to the MDAI conference series.
