AbstractProfessor Patrick Meyer

In this presentation, Patrick Meyer focuses on the methodology and the software platform which allow us to guide decision makers in their Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) activities. We propose to see the MSP problem as a complex evaluation problem involving multiple, conflicting objectives and multiple stakeholders and activities. Consequently, our solution is based on Multi-Criteria Decision Aiding techniques modelling accurately the perspectives of the various stakeholders as well as their preferences.

About the speaker

Prof. Patrick Meyer obtained a degree in Mathematics from the University of Liège in 1999, a Ph.D. in Mathematics and Engineering Sciences jointly from the University of Luxembourg and the Faculty of Engineering of Mons in 2007 and, in 2013, a Habilitation degree in Computer Science from the Université Paris Dauphine. He is currently Professor at IMT Atlantique, a technical University in France, where he teaches courses on operational research, multicriteria decision aiding (MCDA), and algorithmics. He is a researcher in the Lab-STICC CNRS Laboratory, where he is also co-responsible of the DECIDE research team. His research interests include the modelling of the MCDA process and the development of tools to support it, group decision making and applications of MCDA to real world decision problems, as well as its promotion in other research domains, as, e.g., economics.
