Aims and goals: The aim of the MDAI conference series is to provide a forum for researchers to discuss models for decision and information fusion (aggregation operators) and their applications to AI.

In MDAI 2012, we encourage the submission of papers on decision making, information fusion, social networks, data mining, and related topics. Applications to privacy technologies as well as real world problems are welcome.

MDAI 2012 is the 9th MDAI conference. Previous conferences were celebrated in Barcelona (2004), Tsukuba (2005), Tarragona (2006), Kitakyushu (2007), Sabadell (2008), Awaji Island (2009), Perpinyà (2010), and Changsha (2011).

MDAI is rated as a CORE B conference by the Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia - CORE.

Publication: Proceedings with accepted papers will be published in the LNAI/LNCS series (Springer-Verlag) and distributed at the conference, as done in previous conferences. See LNAI volumes 3131, 3558, 3885, 4617, 5285, 5861, and 6408 (with acceptance rates of 26/53, 40/118, 31/97, 42/193, 19/43, 28/61, and 25/43 respectively).

Besides, papers, that according to the evaluation of the referees, are not suitable for the LNAI but that have some merits will be published in a CD-ROM proceedings (with ISBN) and scheduled in the MDAI program.
