Second meeting of the Task force
London, 5th and 6th April 2004
The second meeting of the task force on learning from case studies in decision making and decision support was a success with increased participation and faultless organisation from Patrick Humphreys and his staff at LSE. The meeting opened with the business meeting (click here to download the minutes) which lasted two hours. The future of the group seems secured as no fewer than three meetings in three different locations are already planned in 2004 and 2005.
After a short break, the meeting switched to presentations of research, which were varied and triggered ample discussion. Over the next day and a half, the following presentations were given:
