MOAD’2024 : International Colloquium on Methods and Tools for Decision Support
June 4 th-6nd, 2024, Tizi-Ouzou, Algeria

The Department of Mathematics announces the organization of the sixth International Colloquium on Methods and Tools for Decision Support (MOAD’24) on June 04-06, 2024 in Tizi-Ouzou, Algeria. The event is organized by the Faculty of Sciences of Mouloud Mammeri University of Tizi-Ouzou, in collaboration with the Laboratory of Pure & Applied Mathematics and the Laboratory of Operational Research and Mathematics of Decision, under the sponsorship of the SMA : Mathematical Society of Algeria.

Conference Aims

This scientific event aims to provide researchers with a space for dialogue and exchange. It allows participants to discuss advanced mathematical methods for solving complex decision-making problems in fields such as engineering, finance, biology, logistics, production, resource management, strategic planning, risk management, medicine, among others. It aims to create the right interface for the exchange and diffusion of new ideas and techniques among young researchers, but also to develop these at the heart of digital intelligence by developing software tools to guide decision-making. The program includes plenary lectures as well as paper presentations on various technical aspects of the different research areas. This mathematical conference promotes interdisciplinary between mathematics and decision sciences to offer innovative and effective solutions to complex decision-making problems. In short, mathematics crosses borders as no other discipline is able to do.
This conference will be an opportunity to bring together experts, researchers and professionals, driven by the desire to share their knowledge and experiences in informed decision-making.

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 MOD’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 Béjaïa 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.

Conference Topics

The conference focuses on the following themes:

  • Optimization (combinatorial, multi-criteria, continuous, dynamic, stochastic …); Game Theory;
  • Artificial intelligence;
  • Statistics; Probabilities and stochastic processes;
  • Control and Dynamical systems;
  • Graph Theory; Discrete mathematics, Numbers theory and Combinatorics;
  • Numerical analysis and Partial differential equations;
  • Mathematical modeling and simulation;
  • Applications to engineering sciences.
