Prof. Roman Słowiński

Roman Słowiński is a Professor and Founding Head of the Laboratory of Intelligent Decision Support Systems within the Institute of Computing Science, Poznań University of Technology, Poland. Since 2002 he holds, moreover, professor’s position at the Systems Research Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. He is member of the Polish Academy of Sciences, a corporation of 330 Polish scholars. Presently, he is president of the Poznań Branch of the Polish Academy of Sciences He has done extensive research on methodology and techniques of decision support, including multiple criteria decisions aiding, preference modeling and knowledge-based decision support. This methodology employs a junction of operational research and computational intelligence. His particular interest is focused on: addressing robustness issues in decision analysis, ordinal data mining, preference learning, modeling of uncertainty and imprecision in decision problems; rough set theory; fuzzy set theory; multiobjective optimization; project scheduling, including multiple category resources, multiple job modes, multiple criteria and uncertainty; decision support in medicine, technology, economics and environmental studies. As author or co-author, he has published 14 books and more than 400 articles, including 200 papers in major scientific journals. His ISI h-index>30. He supervised 24 Ph.D. theses in Operational Research and Computing Science. He has been professor on European Chair at the University of Paris Dauphine, and invited professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, the University of Catania, Polytech’Mons, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Yokohama National University, Université Laval-Québec, University of Missouri-Columbia, University of Osaka, Polytech’Tours, Ecole Centrale Paris. He is laureate of the EURO Gold Medal (1991), and Doctor Honoris Causa of Faculté Polytechnique de Mons (2000), Université Paris Dauphine (2001) and Technical University of Crete (2008). He holds, moreover, the Edgeworth-Pareto Award, by International Society on Multiple Criteria Decision Making (1997). In 2005, he received the Annual Prize of the Foundation for Polish Science, regarded as the most prestigious scientific award in Poland. Since 1999, he is editor-in-chief of the European Journal of Operational Research. From 1998 to 2003, he was editor of Decision Analysis Section of the International Journal on Fuzzy Sets and Systems. He organized the First International Workshop on Rough Set Theory and Applications in Poznań, in 1992.
Since 2010 he is on coordination board of the EURO Working Group on Multiple Criteria Decision Aiding, and president of the International Rough Set Society.
