Theory and Applications of Fuzzy Systems and Multicriteria Decision Analysis

Our lives are the sum of our decisions, whether in business or in personal spheres. Often, when we decide is as important as what we decide. It is important to make good decision at the right time and the right choice. Deciding too quickly can be hazardous; delaying too long can mean missed opportunities. In the end, it is crucial to use a systematic and comprehensive approach to decision making. Definitively, to make better decisions it is necessary to adopt a rigorous and a scientific approach. In this context fuzzy sets and multicriteria decision analysis (MCDA) are powerful tools in managing simultaneous sources of subjectivity and vagueness.

This special issue aims to collect a high-quality selection of contemporary research articles on the mentioned topic. The purpose of this special issue is to investigate effective ways to aggregate uncertain information and then apply them to multiple criteria decision analysis (MCDA).

We are particularly interested in publishing articles on applications that also make theoretical contributions.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

– Engineering and technology
– Business management
– Medical and healthcare
– Economic and public finance
– Environmental and sustainability
– Societal problems
– Industrial strategies
– Big data
– Cyber security
– Risk assessment
