The TED project aims to develop Bayesian support of societal decision making in order to enable a shift from e-administration towards true e-democracy. For detailed information please see http://bayes.escet.urjc.es/ted

CMP

CMP (Computer- Intensive Methods in Control and Data Processing) is the sixth in a  series of workshops addressing the common problem known as  "curse of dimensionality", namely the extreme dimensionality of computations connected  with implementation of theoretically optimal mathematical procedures of inference and decision-making.

CMP'04 ~ TED & CMP

A principal concern of the TED project is  multiple-participant decision making, relevant in business, management, medicine, investment, environmental issues, etc. The search for adequate problem formulations that lead to feasible solutions will be essential for future progress. The challenges include

These issues (as well as other instances of the curse of dimensionality) are often solved using ad hoc simplifications at the cost of losing a lot from the theoretical properties of the optimal solution. However, there are powerful principles with wide applicability that can now be used to attack these complex problems. The key idea of the Workshop is that the generic nature of these problems offers the a chance to learn from each other across borders of disciplines.

AIM

The aim of this TED Workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners working in academia, government and industry in order to 
  1. formulate the complexity-influenced problems within areas of multiple-participant decision making, which should be addressed by the technology providers;
  2. offer technique developed in disparate research and application areas that can be used in solving these problems.

TOPICS

A considerable space will be given to invited lectures by leading specialists in various fields. This will create a firm backbone for this strongly inter-disciplinary Workshop. Several sessions of contributed papers, posters and computer demonstrations will complement them.

The topics relevant to the Workshop include:
