e-Rabat, Morocco, June 2-5, 2020

 

 

Welcome to e-PROMETHEE Days 2020

 

All members of the PROMETHEE Days 2020 SC and OC wish to express their support and friendship to the entire PROMETHEE Community. Let us stick together (but not too close...) during these difficult times.

 

The current health emergency situation makes it impossible to maintain our meeting as foreseen in Rabat on June 2-4:

  • Containment and travel restrictions will most certainly continue at least through May.
  • Even if it were possible to travel to Rabat in June, many people will probably prefer to recover and to avoid international travel.

 

We are no losers either and we will not cancel a meeting including 39 top-class contributions.

 

Instead, PROMETHEE Days 2020 turns to e-PROMETHEE Days 2020.

It will take place electronically in three phases.

What does it mean?

New instructions to authors are now available here... just click!

 

  • Organization:
    • An e-PD2020 Forum has been set up and is available at http://forum.promethee-gaia.net
