    Dear All 

    We hope you are all well. The Coronavirus pandemic is yet another reminder of the relevance of health as a key topic for decision making.


    Decision analysis is well suited to dealing with emerging topics in health care, which are often characterized by the need to make decisions in the face of uncertainty, conflicting objectives, limited evidence, and complex trade-offs.


    We will be organizing session(s) in the 2020  INFORMS Annual Meeting on Emerging Topics in Health Decision Analysis.


    This is in conjunction with a call for papers for a special issue in the Decision Analysis journal:


    Presenting your paper in our session will be an excellent opportunity for receiving feedback from the guest editors before submission (but this isn't a necessary condition to submit a paper to the special issue).


    If you would like to present your paper, please send a title, a short abstract, and author name and email address to Prof Gilberto Montibeller ( by the 30th of Apr the latest.


    Thank you and keep safe!


    Profs Gilberto Montibeller and Jun Zhuang
