If you are interested in giving a talk at the EMO session, we offer you two different options: either you submit a full paper to the upcoming Special Issue of the MCDA journal until January 31st, 2011 the submission deadline passed or you simply submit an abstract by the same deadline. Whereas the full paper submission will allow to travel to Jyväskylä with the certainty of a peer-reviewed journal publication, the abstract submission will allow to give a talk but does not guarantee a publication as no conference proceedings will be published.

Please note that, due to space limitations during the conference, each registered participant can only present one talk!

Full Paper Submission for Special Issue

Full papers that are submitted to the EMO session, accepted after a peer-review process with at least three different Reviewers, and presented at the MCDM'2011 conference will be published in the accompanying Special Issue of the Journal of Multi Criteria Decision Analysis. Note that the submitted papers should contain unpublished material that is also not under review elsewhere. For formatting informations and further instructions, please see the Author Instructions of Wiley.

The submission deadline for the full papers for the EMO session is January 31st, 2011 the submission deadline passed. Please, upload your submission to the MCDA journal via Manuscript Central, and in addition send it in PDF format via email to Dimo Brockhoff. Please note that you can also submit a paper for the special issue later (planned submission deadline: end of July 2011) but then, your paper cannot be considered for the EMO session at the MCDM conference. In this case, we suggest to submit your abstract until January 31, 2011 as described below and the full paper later.

Abstract Submission

Besides the full paper submission, we also invite submissions as proposals for a talk in form of a short abstract of maximally 350 words (see the official MCDM'2011 call for abstracts for details). The talks should present recent research ideas and it is appreciated if they identify open questions to foster discussions rather than showing finalized results. Note that, though an accepted abstract corresponds to a talk during the EMO session, no publication is associated to it as no conference proceedings will be published.

The submission deadline for the extended abstracts is also January 31, 2011 the submission deadline passed like for the abstract submission of all other MCDM'2011 sessions. Please send your abstract directly to one of the organizers by e-mail (preferably to Dimo Brockhoff). Please do not use the official submission system of the MCDM'2011 conference as submitted abstracts cannot be directly associated to the EMO session. After the reviewing process, however, authors of accepted abstracts will receive an official invitation to submit their final abstracts via the MCDM'2011 system .
