12th International Partial Order Conference


The description of complex phenomena in different scientific fields (such as poverty, well-being, sustainable development, social progress, quality of life, social cohesion, vulnerability, environment risk assessment) by a set of indicators has become increasingly important. When a decision is to be based on this set of indicators then ranking is one of the possible applications. Although indicator systems are widely applied and statistically investigated, there are still many questions open. The 12th International Partial Order Conference focuses on analysis of complex phenomenon by Multi-Indicator Systems.

We welcome work from all scholars and academics on any related to the topic of partial order theory, and/or its application to social indicators.
