EmergingMoreAdvances in technology have resulted in new and advanced methods to support decision-making. For example, artificial intelligence has enabled people to make better decisions hrough the use of Intelligent Decision Support Systems (DSS). Emerging research in DSS demonstrates that decision makers can operate in a more timely manner using real-time data, more accurately due to data mining and big data methods, more strategically by considering a greater number of factors, more precisely and inclusively due to the availability of social networking data, and with a wider media reach with video and audio technology._x000D__x000D_This book presents the proceedings of the IFIP TC8/Working Group 8.3 conference held at the Universite Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France, in June 2014. Throughout its history the conference has aimed to present the latest innovations and achievements in Decision Support Systems. This year the conference looks to the next generation with the theme of new technologies to enable DSS2.0. The topics covered include theoretical, empirical and design science research- case-based approaches in decision support systems- decision models in the real-world- healthcare information technology- decision making theory- knowledge management- knowledge and resource discovery- business intelligence- group decision support systems- collaborative decision making- analytics and big data- rich language for decision support- multimedia tools for DSS- Web 2.0 systems in decision support- context-based technologies for decision making- intelligent systems and technologies in decision support- organizational decision support- research methods in DSS 2.0- mobile DSS- competing on analytics- and social media analytics._x000D__x000D_The book will be of interest to all those who develop or use Decision Support Systems. The variety of methods and applications illustrated by this international group of carefully reviewed papers should provide ideas and directions for future researchers and practitioners alike.
