We are delighted to invite contributions to the 9th International Conference on
Intelligent Decision Technologies, organised by KES International. IDT-2017 is an
international scientific conference for research in the area of Intelligent Decision
Technologies with subjects considering theory and application. This conference is
dedicated to improving decision making.

The conference is interdisciplinary in nature and 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 will be co-located under the KES Smart Digital Futures umbrella
with our other Intelligent Systems conferences: IIMSS, AMSTA, SEEL and the newly
added InMED (Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare). Registration gives access to all
of these conferences, together with a paper published in one set of proceedings.


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.

Please see the Smart Digital Futures website: for more information.

Conference Scope

Papers are invited on theoretical and applied topics related to the scope of the conference.

General Topics of Interest

Authors should relate their topic to improving some aspect of decision making. Topics related
to intelligent decision making include, but are not limited to, intelligent agents, fuzzy logic,
multi-agent systems, artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms, expert systems, intelligent
decision making support systems, information retrieval systems, geographic information
systems, knowledge management systems.

IDT Applications

IDT's have the potential to support decision making in many areas including management,
international business, finance, accounting, marketing, healthcare, medical and diagnostic
systems, military decisions, production and operation, networks, traffic management, crisis
response, human-machine interfaces, financial and stock market monitoring and prediction,
