The Internet Age and the many changes it has brought into our world has made it necessary to develop new approaches to decision making and decision support. This idea emerges from a series of working conferences organised every two years by IFIP WG 8.3 on Decision Support Systems (DSS) since 1981. The large spread of decision problems, the constant evolution of the use of DSSs, and of collective/distributed tools in the Internet Age requires a widely open conference. The emergence of various streams, all relevant to our discipline, calls for the organization of a conference not limited to traditional DSS views.

Thus, the goal of this conference is to encourage the exchange of new ideas about decision support systems in the Internet Age and to promote their use in the decision making processes of organisations. The emphasis will also be put on emerging needs related to distributed and remote decision which could be supported through the web. New thoughts and new ideas for enhancing decision through the use of web technologies and the World Wide Web are especially welcome.
