These papers stem from a biennial conference which constitutes an international and interdisciplinary forum for scientists dealing with modeling, analyzing and aiding decision processes. The contributions in the first part offer criticisms and challenges for the study of human decision making and the design of valid decision-support methods, programs or systems. The second part presents formal models and empirical analyses of human decision behavior in group situations, connecting perspectives and paradigms from decision theory, game theory and social psychology. The third section examines the practical limits and strengths in the application of decision analysis. The following section is devoted to prescription: How shall we design computer systems to help decision makers? The last group of papers are instructive examples of problem oriented research, exploring the utility of decision research for the analysis of "real" decision processes.
