8th International KES Conference


Welcome to IDT-16

The field of Intelligent Decision Technologies is interdisciplinary in nature, bridging computer science with its development of artificial intelligence, information systems with its development of decision support systems, and engineering with its development of systems.

The Intelligent Decisions Technologies conference will consist of keynote talks, oral and poster presentations, invited sessions and workshops, on the applications and theory of intelligent decision systems and related areas. It will provide excellent opportunities for the presentation of interesting new research results and discussion about them, leading to knowledge transfer and generation of new ideas.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer as book chapters in a volume of the KES Smart Innovation Systems and Technologies series, submitted for indexing in Scopus and Thomson-Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and the Web of Science.

Smart Digital Futures

The conference took place as part of the Smart Digital Futures 2016 multi-theme conference which groups AMSTA-16, IDT-16, IIMSS-16, InMed-16 and SEEL-16 in one venue.
