ITQM2017: Agora's special session in India

ITQM2017, 8-10 December, 2017, Delhi, India

Special Session 01: Soft computing methods in quantitative management and decision making processes

Organizers and Chairs:

1. Florin Gheorghe Filip, Romanian Academy, Romania& Doctor Honoris Causa of Agora University;
2. Ioan Dzitac, Rector of Agora University of Oradea &  Professor at Aurel Vlaicu University of Arad, Romania;
3. Simona Dzitac, Assoc. Professor at University of Oradea, Romania & Researcher at R&D Agora Center.

  • In according with Zadeh’s definition, Soft Computing (SC) is based on Fuzzy Logic, Neural Networks, Support Vector Machines, Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Probabilistic Reasoning. SC can deal with ambiguous or noisy data and is tolerant of imprecision, uncertainty, partial truth, and approximation. In effect, the role model for SC is the human mind. Artificial Intelligence and Computational Intelligence based on SC provide the background for the development of smart management systems and decisions in case of ill-posed problems.
  • In many real-world situations, the problems of decision making are subjected to some constraints, objectives and consequences that are not accurately known. After Bellman and Zadeh introduced for the first time fuzzy sets within multiple-criteria decision-making (MCDM), many researchers have been preoccupied by decision making in fuzzy environments. The fusion between MCDM and fuzzy set theory has led to a new decision theory, known today as fuzzy multi-criteria decision making (FMCDM), where we have decision-maker models that can deal with incomplete and uncertain knowledge and information. The most important thing is that, when we want to assess, judge or decide we usually use a natural language in which the words do not have a clear, definite meaning. As a result, we need fuzzy numbers to express linguistic variables, to describe the subjective judgement of a decision maker in a quantitative manner. Fuzzy numbers (FN) most often used are triangular FN, trapezoidal FN and Gaussian FN. We highlight that the concept of linguistic variable introduced by Lotfi A. Zadeh in 1975 allows computation with words instead of numbers and thus linguistic terms defined by fuzzy sets are intensely used in problems of decision theory for modelling uncertain information. After Atanassov introduced the concept of intuitionistic fuzzy sets, where each element is characterized by a membership function, as in fuzzy sets, as well as by a non-membership function, the interest in the study of the problems of decision making theory with the help of intuitionistic fuzzy sets has increased.
  • The goal of this special session is to bring together researchers interested in applications of soft computing algorithms and procedures in quantitative management and decision making, in order to exchange ideas on problems, solutions, and to work together in a friendly environment.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

    - Ant colony optimization algorithms;
    - Artificial intelligence methods for web mining;
    - Bayesian networks and decision graphs; Computational intelligence methods for data mining;
    - Decision support systems for quantitative management;
    - Decision making with missing and/or uncertain data;
    - Fuzzy multi-criteria decision making;
    - Fuzzy and neuro-fuzzy modelling and simulation;
    - Fuzzy numbers applications to decision making;
    - Fuzzy-sets-based models in operation research;
    - Knowledge Discovery in Databases;
    - Machine learning for intelligent support of quantitative management;
    - Neural networks in decision making tools;
    - Smarter decisions;
    - Support Vector Machine in SC applications;

    Rector's Word 2016-2017

    Written on March 10, 2017.

    Rector's Word 2016-2017

    "Access to Success!" (Motto UAO)

    "The management team of Agora University of Oradea assumes transparency as an essential component of quality." (Mission assumed by the rector and his team)

    EUA-IEP Team: "The team has enjoyed learning about the characteristics of Agora University and its role as an entrepreneurial provider of higher education in the fields of law, management and social science. It has been an interesting experience to discuss with staff, students, and external stakeholders the challenges faced by UAO and the university’s efforts to address constraints and to explore future opportunities. We believe the university has the potential to take successful steps in its next stage of development."

    Agora University of Oradea is a higher education institution of private law and public utility, founded in 2000 by Agora Foundation,  accredited by ARACIS in 2010 and  validated by the Romanian Parliament by Law 59/2012, as a part of national system of higher education in Romania.

    On 24.04.2012 I was elected rector by all teachers and students of the University Agora, the legislature from 2012 to 2016, and in 2016  I was re-elected for the mandate 2016-2020.

    Rector legally represents the University Agora of Oradea (UAO) in the National Council of Rectors in relations with the Ministry of National Education and its subordinate entities or advisory (ARACIS, CNATDCU, UEFISCDI etc.), with central and local government, educational institutions and national research and abroad, with domestic and international public bodies.

    Although young and small, with two faculties (Faculty of Economics and Faculty of Law and Administration), University Agora is extremely dynamic and active. Instead of a quantitative prefer qualitative development.

    Without false modesty, Agora University have some performance difficult to achieve even some old and larger academic institutions: 5 research centers (two international), a publishing house editing 5 international scientific journals in English language (one of which is indexed in ISI Web of Science), 5 international conferences in English, a computer laboratory, a forensic laboratory, three rooms with smart boards for videoconferencing courses, three lecture halls with over 100 seats, platform for e- functional learning, and 10 POS-DRU successfully  projects.

    If you agree a higher quality education, through modern teaching technologies, in full transparency and legality, come with the greatest confidence to University Agora.

    In total transparency spirit that characterizes us, I invite you to read the document below: Rector's report about UAO 2015 (Cf. article 130 of Law 1/2011): PDF

    Success to  Access!

    Extract from Chapter II (from University Charter).  Mission and Goals

    Art. 2.  (1) The mission of the Agora University is based on initial vision of the founders, who not randomly chose as a name, an ancient symbol of public democracy. The democratic spirit of "Agora" was and always will be the straight line of its development and will also bring for the university an innovative value, dynamism and harmonious growth. The founders understood that the encouragement of thinking and expressing freely of the Agora’s students, academic and research staff, the opening mind, in order to have as managers and leaders professionals and important cultural and scientific personalities from outside, able to obtain and even to exceed in a short period of time the performances of some important academic institutions with tradition in this area.         

    (2) Being a young university, centered on education in the field of social sciences, the Agora University assumes the mission to transmit to its students the spirit of "Agora", based on the values of democracy and trans-disciplinary humanism, this spirit being forwarded to the society by the students. Starting with the present goods and internal potential, with the opening towards external collaborations, the Agora University wants for the near future to add new values for the human knowledge, promoting and encouraging  the research, tending towards a mission of education and research, so as to be well recognized in the Romanian and European academic areas as an efficient model for the access to success in a dynamic society.     

    (3) The Agora University aims to become a cultural and civic center, designed to contribute to forming and transmitting the national and universal values, promoting the pluralism of options for the civic and political  development and, through its own graduates and scientific researches, to contribute to the improvement of the performances obtained by the economical companies in the Western part of Romania.  

    Art. 3. In order to fulfill its mission, the Agora University established the following objectives:

    1.  Being a student education centered university, Agora aims:

    a) engaging teaching methods  and modern learning, based on the implementation of the e-learning technology in teaching,  to all university programs and, also, post graduate programs, of professional continuous formation, and development and to all its forms of education;

    b) the exact identification of the objectives of the university programs and post graduate programs, as well as the correct evaluation of costs and benefits;

    c) the creation of an "Agora" academic culture, based on democracy, interdisciplinary, opening for new and for exterior, that should contribute to the community efforts to high up the level of culture and civilization of Romanian people;

    d) providing the community  specialists with highly professional,  moral and civic background, locally and regionally recognition of educational services that are offered.  

    (2) the optimization of activity for research-development-innovation through:

    a)  the establishment of  a strategy for basic and applied scientific research in the economic, juridical and social carried out in collaboration with other Romanian and foreign  universities and research institutes, aimed for supporting economic, social and cultural development.

    b) the dissemination of research results through publications, exploratory workshops, conferences and research networks with internal and external participants;

    (3) Strengthening and expanding relations with the external environment, scientific, economic and social one:

    a)  consolidation and development of a  responsible institutional and managerial culture in order to value the strengths,  to exploit opportunities and to always ensure the effective management of risks;
