Call For Papers

This Special Issue aims to demonstrate the indispensable role of business data and methodological know-how in helping decision-making and how to use and exploit the prior knowledge to enhance data analytic for autonomous decision-making. We hence encourage original paper submissions, which have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere, from both academia and industry presenting novel research addressing the aforementioned challenges. We are seeking both conceptual and empirical papers offering new insights and contribution to the development of data analytic algorithms and systems for autonomous decision-making, which focus on the following topics (but are not limited to) which demonstrate the role of exploiting the knowledge to enhance data analytics:

  • Enhancing the capability in handling uncertainty
