Nowadays the use of assessment methodologies is becoming increasingly important due not only to concerns regarding better usage of limited resources but also due to the need of justifying in a sound way the decision making choices. The use of recognized assessment techniques is actually mandatory in many situations, considering environmental, social, economic and sustainability concerns.
This workshop has as main objective to bring together researchers working in this broad area of project appraisal and impact assessment methodologies, contributing to both theoretical and methodological advances.
During the workshop, researchers will be invited to discuss assessment methodology applications to energy, mobility as well as other real world applications. Contributions regarding the development of new or the improvement of known methodologies are also welcome.
Participants are encouraged to submit their contributions on all areas of assessment methodologies including, but not limited, to the following:
· Multicriteria decision analysis
· Life cycle assessment
· Multiobjective optimization
· Cost-benefit analysis
· Input-output analysis
· Capital budgeting
· Real options analysis
· Risk and uncertainty analysis
· Environmental and social impact assessment
· Data Envelopment Analysis
