The Second International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory (ADT) will be held at DIMACS in the Fall of 2011. The conference will be broad in scope, covering all aspects of the growing field of ADT. It will involve researchers from such disparate fields as decision theory, discrete mathematics, theoretical computer science, economics, and artificial intelligence, aiming to improve decision support in the presence of massive data bases, partial and/or uncertain information, and distributed decision makers. It will emphasize real-world decision problems involving fundamental problems of the world's societies: climate change, environmental protection, energy use, health care, financial management, natural disasters, terrorism, etc.

The 1st International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory (ADT 2009) was a clear success and demonstrated the demand for establishing a permanent scientific forum for this community. The Second International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory will include tutorials, key invited speakers each day, and a call for papers and posters. The Second International Conference on Algorithmic Decision Theory will be a major step in focusing researchers and students from multiple disciplines on the task of developing tools for dealing with the complex decision making problems facing global society.

ADT 2011 will be held at the DIMACS Center in Piscataway, New Jersey, a major multidisciplinary research center based at Rutgers University and located close to New York City and Philadelphia.
