Conference on MCDM for Sustainable Energy and Transportation Systems

MCDM 2008 – 19th International Conference on Multiple Criteria Decision Making – MCDM for Sustainable Energy and Transportation Systems
The University of Auckland
7 – 12 January 2008, Auckland, New Zealand

The MCDM folks have their own society and the above is their conference. Their web site has an extensive bibliography of MCDM work, could be a good place to look for more OR/Sustainability overlaps including in their Journal of Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis.

    Interesting stuff.
    Do you know of any case studies where MCDM was implemented toward sustainable transportation systems? I would be keen on having a look at something of that nature if it’s out there.

    Thanks. The following may be of some interest though I have not read them:

    Tzeng GH, Shiau TA. Energy conservation strategies in urban transportation: application of multi-criteria decision making. Energy Systems and Policy 1987;11:1–19.

    Brand C, Mattarelli M, Moon D, Calvo RW. STEEDS: A strategic transport-energy-environment decision support. European Journal of Operational Research 2002;139(2):416–35.

    Yedla S, Shreshtha RM. Multicriteria approach for selection of alternative option for environmentally sustainable transport system in Delhi. Transportation Research part A 2003;37:717–29.

    These were all cited by the Pohekar and Ramachandran paper listed on the References page. I’d also check the MCDM bibliography (link given above) if you haven’t already. Let me know if you find anything useful.
