Instructions to authors



Organization of the e-PROMETHEE Days 2020 meeting:


• The e-PROMETHEE Days 2020 meeting is now organized as an electronic meeting.


Three phases are scheduled:

  • Phase 3 - Post-proceedings publishing and O&D PROMETHEE Days 2020 Awards. (June 6 to October 5)


• Thank you for following the instructions below and for contributing to the success of the e-PROMETHEE Days 2020 meeting.


Phase 1 - Presentation upload and initial discussion (his phase is over now):


  • A Forum has been set up and is available at https://forum.promethee-gaia.net
  • All submitted abstracts or short papers have been uploaded to the Forum in a series of boards corresponding to the PROMETHEE Days 2020 announced sessions (see original Schedule to find your session).
  • Registration is mandatory to get access to the Forum. Registration to the Forum is free until June 1.


  • All authors please:
    • Register to the Forum.
    • Check the information related to your paper.
    • Make any required update.
    • Upload or send us your presentation by the extended May 25 deadline, using either:
      • Powerpoint or pdf presentation, preferably with audio or video annotation.
      • Video presentation.
      • Full or short paper (doc or pdf).
    • Pay the 35€ reduced registration fee by June 1. We need your contribution to cover our minimal expenses.


  • All registered participants please:
    • Consult all information available on the Forum.
    • Initiate discussions with authors and all other participants.
    • Pay the 35€ reduced registration fee by June 1. We need your contribution to cover our minimal expenses.


  • Registration fee payment deadline: June 1, 2020. Unpaid fees will result in paper removal from the conference program and from the O&D PROMETHEE Days 2020 Award competition, and in unregistration from the Forum.


Phase 2 - Zoom e-sessions (this phase is over now):


  • Daily e-sessions will be organized during the June 2-5 period.
  • The exact schedule will be announced during the last week of May and will take into account the time zones of the participants: we welcome authors geographically distributed over a 10-hour timezone difference (from America to India).
  • e-Session time, and thus presentation time, will be kept to a minimum for practical and technical reasons. Participants to e-sessions are encouraged to consult the Forum and to post comments or questions on the Forum before the actual e-session.
  • The Zoom system will be used. Connection instructions will be sent from UQAM, by our colleague Jean-Philippe Waaub, to all participants having registered and paid their registration fee.


Phase 3 - Post-proceedings publishing and O&D PROMETHEE Days 2020 Awards


  • A special PROMETHEE Days 2020 issue of the Outranking & Decision open journal is organized.
  • All registered authors having uploaded their presentation and participated in the corresponding e-session are welcome to submit their full paper by the updated September 7, 2020, deadline.
  • All submitted papers will go through a normal albeit accelerated reviewing process before they are accepted for publication: paper acceptance will be notified to the authors by September 21, 2020.
  • The JPB PROMETHEE Award 2020 is canceled (because no physical presentation of the papers can be evaluated). It is exceptionally replaced by two ( 2 ) 1000€ O & D PROMETHEE Days 2020 Awards that will be attributed by the jury to the two best papers published in the O & D special issue.
    • Eligible papers should:
      • Have been accepted for publication in the O&D special issue.
      • Be directly related to the PROMETHEE methods.
    • The winners of the two Awards will be announced on October 5, 2020. The prizes and trophies will be awarded to the winners during the PROMETHEE Days 2021 meeting.
