Guest Editors:

In the multicriteria decision aid community, PROMETHEE and GAIA have been developed for more than 30 years. Today, hundreds of applications have been published, several software packages are available, and new methodological developments (including group decision support, preference elicitation, sorting, etc.) have been proposed.

This special issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the first International MCDA Workshop on PROMETHEE: Research and Case Studies, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
