Salvatore Greco

I took my degree in 1988 at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Catania where I ave been a researcher since 1994, associated professor since 1998 and full professor since 2001. I have been teaching Decision Theory, General Mathematics and Financial Mathematics. My research regards Multiple Criteria Decision Aiding (MCDA).  Together with Benedetto Matarazzo and Roman Slowinski, I proposed the Dominance-based Rough Set Approach (DRSA), which permits to apply rough set theory within MCDA. Together with other colleagues, I have also proposed Robust Ordinal Regression (ROR), which permits to take into account the whole set of value functions representing the preference information given by the decision maker. I have been working also on application of non-additive integrals to MCDA proposing, together with Benedetto Matarazzo and Silvio Giove, a new powerful generalization of the Choquet integral: the level dependent Choquet integral. Together with José Figueira and Matthias Ehrgott, I am the editor of a state of art collection in MCDA, published by Springer in 2005, which has become a reference book receiving 1281 citations according to Google Scholar: J. Figueira, S. Greco, M. Ehrgott (eds.) (2005). Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis: State of the Art Surveys. NEW YORK: Springer.

Dylan Jones

I am a Professor of Operational Research in the School of Mathematics and Physics, and Director of the Centre for Operational Research and Logistics. I have a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics with Operational Research from the University of Southampton and a PhD in Operational Research, also from the University of Portsmouth. I have been involved in research, teaching, and course development in the field of Logistics and Operational Research over the past twenty-five years. My area of research is the theory of making decisions in the presence of multiple, conflicting objectives.
I am interested in a wide range of applications but have specifically worked in applications to supply chain management and logistics, maritime logistics, healthcare, renewable energy and sustainability. I attend international conferences in either general Operational Research or specialised in Multi-Criteria Decision Making. My current research is funded by the European Union and I have particular research connections in France, Spain, and Brazil. I am the author of over 50 publications in international journals and a Springer research book on goal programming.

Kathrin Klamroth

Kathrin Klamroth leads the optimization group at the University of Wuppertal, Germany. The team has a strong research focus on multiple objective optimization, spanning the bridge from modelling and theoretical analysis to decision making tools and algorithm development and testing, and covering discrete and continuous optimization problems.
Kathrin received her PhD at the University of Braunschweig in Germany in 1994. In 2002, she attained her Habilitation at the University of Kaiserslautern. After six years at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, she moved to Wuppertal in 2008. She has held visiting positions at Clemson University (USA), the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) and Paris Dauphine University (France). Kathrin has been an executive committee member of the International Society on MCDM from 2006-2010 and since 2013. She was a member of the MCDM dissertation award committee 2011 and 2013. She has co-organized the MCDM track at several EURO and EMO meetings and she is co-organizer of a Dagstuhl seminar on MCDM and EMO in 2015, 2018 and 2020. In 2019, Kathrin received the Georg Cantor award of the Society on MCDM.
