Our Goal

The key goal of this TC is to provide a forum for promoting research in the development and application of formal approaches to conflict resolution and risk analysis in systems management. The word Conflict implies that multiple participants or agents having different value systems are part of the societal, natural or technological system, or system of systems, being studied. The term Risk means that these decision makers are participating in a systems problem in which cooperative and competitive behavior could result in great opportunities or detrimental results for one or more of the stakeholders. The phrase Systems Management refers to the design, operation, and maintenance of systems.
