“EMEUE 2014″ Third International Conference on Econometrics and Multidimensional Evaluation in Urban Environment
Several urban policies stress the role of evaluation, as support of sustainable urban development/preservation/transformation plans and programs, moving into a novel conceptual framework that integrate economic, ecological and social dimension in spatial planning. Moreover in the last decades ICT are improving multidimensional evaluation processes in spatial planning, using the web as a powerful mean to spread and gather information, and to increase democracy and participation in/through multi-actor and multi-group assessment processes. In this perspective, the scientific effort is related to the identification of appropriate procedure to address the deliberative structure. In fact, through organizing and facilitating communication, it is possible to build consensus among various decision-makers and interest groups and generate compromise and solutions that best represent the preferences of all the ones involved in the spatial decision-making process.
Several novel researches in this field of investigation consider ‘adaptive approaches’ that try to expand the information and knowledge base underpinning policies, in order to achieve better outcomes, to cultivate broad civic engagement and, consequently, to enhance the political legitimacy of – and hence the public commitment to – policy actions. An evaluative framework for adaptive processes can be developed by considering some important approaches from ecological resilience, livelihood, consensus building, and collaborative processes defining the approach of ‘adaptive evaluation’.
The ultimate goal of the workshop is to enlighten the hot-topics and the fresh-new experimentations and ideas in multicriteria, collaborative, adaptive decision-making, multidimensional appraisal and econometrics, supported by spatial data infrastructures and ICT. These approaches are spread in many scientific fields, from the traditional spatial urban economics, to the real estate economics and to the newest bio-econometrics. The main topics of the workshop are related – and not limited – to multidimensional approaches in urban economics, from the econometric approach to qualitative evaluation; new analytical and empirical approaches, hard and soft fuzzy multicriteria analysis, multidimensional computing, bio-econometrics, spatial econometrics, MCDM in environmental, cultural and urban economics.
The programme committee especially requests high quality submissions on the following (but not limited to) Conference Themes:
- Social Multicriteria Evaluation
- Fuzzy Multicriteria Evaluation
- Hybrid Multicriteria decision-making
- AHP and ANP innovative experience
- Real estate modeling
- Urban economics
- Real Estate Mass appraisal
- Multicriteria decision-making and Gis-supported MCDM
- MCDA methods with GIS and Web for collaborative decision-making
- Multi-method evaluation systems
- Econometrics, Spatial econometrics, Bioeconometrics
Each paper will be independently reviewed by three programme committee members.
Their individual scores will be evaluated by a small sub-committee and result in one of the following final decisions: accepted, or accepted after incorporation of improvements suggested, or rejected. Notification of this decision will take place on March 2014.
Individuals and groups should submit complete papers (10 to 16 pages).
Accepted contributions will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) volume.
