Best Practices, Standards, Real-World Business Cases, and Supporting

July 13-14 2017, Birkbeck University of London, London UK

This page is about the DecisionCAMP Call for Papers. For information on the program, please refer to the Program page.
Decision Management is rapidly becoming the critical methodological and technological framework to support decision making approaches across a wide range of industries. Business analysts, architects, developers and decision makers at all levels, as well as technology vendors and consultants, are becoming Decision Management practitioners and actively using Decision Management technologies such as:

  • Business Rules
  • Business Decision Modeling
  • Decision Testing and Execution
  • Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics
  • Decision Optimization

New operational decision management systems integrate traditional business processes, business rules, advanced analytics, events, and more – directing them all to a common goal – better business decisions! The new OMG standard “Decision Model and Notation (DMN)” brings standardization to decision modeling, an emerging best practice. Decision Modeling clearly defines a business target, shows how to orchestrate decision management techniques, supports interoperability, and integrates decisions into modern enterprise architectures.

DecisionCAMP is the latest incarnation of the series of popular events for Decision Management practitioners. It started in 2008 as October RulesFest, continued in 2009-2011 as RulesFest, became IntelliFest in 2012, and DecisionCAMP in 2013-2016. See the entire history of the events. DecisionCAMP-2017 is organized by and is hosted by the RuleML+RR: International Joint Conference on Rules and Reasoning.

DecisionCAMP-2017 will include presentations from leading decision management authorities, vendors, and practitioners. The event will explore the current state in Decision Management, the real-world use of the DMN standard, and solutions to various business problems using Decision Management  tools and capabilities. The event will include a Q&A Panel “Real-world Decision Modeling”.

There are many benefits to attending DecisionCAMP:

  • Learn about new trends in Decision Management technologies, and how they can be used to address your business problems
  • Share practical results on the use of various decision management technologies in business settings
  • Exchange best practices for using DMN and decision management technologies.
