    MOAD’2024 aims to establish an outstanding international forum for sharing knowledge and results in the theory, methodology, and application impacts and challenges of decision-making. It provides a platform for researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to meet, exchange ideas, and share cutting-edge developments in the field.

Call for Paper Topics

Authors are invited to contribute to the conference by submitting articles that illustrate research results, projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that describe significant advances in the following areas, but are not limited to:

  • - Optimization (combinatorial, multi-criteria, continuous, dynamic, stochastic ...); Game Theory;
  • - Artificial intelligence;
  • - Statistics; Probability and stochastic processes;
  • - Control and Dynamical systems;
  • - Graph Theory; Discrete mathematics, Numbers theory and Combinatorics;

  • - Applications to engineering sciences.

Publication Information

  • Accepted original papers will be featured in the MOAD'2024 Post Proceeding.

  • Selected papers of MOAD’2024 that describe significant advances in “Control of dynamic behaviors governed by functional and evolutionary equations” will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to the Springer book series "Advances in Delays and Dynamics".

  • A special issue in the RAIRO-Operations Research journal, will be dedicated to the MOAD'2024 conference. Selected lengthy papers from MOAD’2024 will have the opportunity to be submitted for this special issue. All submissions to the RAIRO-OR special issue will undergo the journal's rigorous evaluation procedure. Additionally, the special issue will be open to papers not presented at the conference.

Conference History

   Methods and Tools for Decision Support (MOAD) series of conferences has a long history. MOAD conference inception was the result of the passion and commitment of a group of researchers eager to put high-performance application tools at the service of the national economy.

   The first edition, MOAD’1992, was open to economic operators and was organized by the University of Bejaia, Algeria. Its scientific and application outputs were published by Bejaia University and worldwide disseminated via the report published by the journal MATAPLI of the SMAI (French Society of Applied and Industrial Mathematics) [n° 35, 1993, pp. 71 – 72]. The next two editions are MOAD’2000, organized by the University of Sidi Bel Abbès, Algeria, and MOAD’2004, organized by Saïda University, Algeria. The organization of the last two editions, MOAD’2007 and MOAD’2022, was back to Bejaia University.

   According to the organizers, this is due to the need to evaluate the progress and body of knowledge presented in the previous editions and to draw new perspectives and orientations for the conference considering the economic changes, new developments in technology and mathematical methods for decision-making at local and global levels.
