The Society meets annually at intimate workshops that seek to support the growing community of practice with opportunities to share research and applications, discuss methodologies, explore new challenges, and welcome new members.

November 16-17, 2016 (training on 15th)
The World Bank will host the 2016 workshop in Washington DC, on November 16 and 17, 2016, with a training on DMDU methodologies scheduled for November 15th, 2016.
During the first three workshops, the society’s members have been getting to know each other and each other’s work. Over this time, demand for DMDU work has grown rapidly, and we have discovered common theoretical and practical challenges to applying our methods and meeting those demands. Many of these challenges are not unique to DMU, but apply to other policy and decision analysis methods as well. This year’s workshop seeks to address those challenges and to bring in new perspectives from related fields. We believe that by brainstorming together on the problems we face, our community will grow stronger and our work will be even more equipped to respond to today’s difficult planning problems.
This year will have a different workshop format. We will hold problem-solving discussion sessions in which 2-4 panelists will lead a discussion with workshop participants to discuss challenges that our community faces and ways to solve them. These sessions will take the place of traditional plenary talks. Additionally we will organize poster sessions during the workshop breaks to hear from participants about their latest work.
