This scientific event disseminates recent methods and procedures designed to solve problems related to finance, insurance and portfolio selection formulated through a mathematical programming framework and for which a stack of conflicting and incommensurable objectives (criteria, attributes) is simultaneously optimized. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from all over the world to discuss recent theoretical and methodological developments of multi-attributes portfolio selection, insurance and investment.
Given the popularity of the financial portfolio optimization topic within the fields of finance and operational research, and the large number of active researchers, the idea of organizing an international workshop on multi-attribute portfolio selection (MAPS) was initiated in Helsinki in 2005 and chaired by P. Korhonen. The second edition of this scientific event took place in Montreal and was organized by B. Aouni in 2007. The third edition of MAPS was organized by A. Balbas in Madrid in 2009. The international committee has decided to replace the MAPS workshops by an International Conference on Multidimensional Finance, Insurance and Investment (ICMFII) with a two years periodicity. The first edition of the ICMFII held on April 14-16, 2011 in Hammamet and chaired by F. Ben Abdelaziz. The second edition of the ICMFII will be organized on January 11-13, 2013 in Nizwa, Sultanate of Oman, and chaired by H. Masri. There will be rigorous plenary talks by invited speakers as well as contributed talks.
