About the authors

Frada Burstein completed her PhD at the Institute of Cybernetics, Georgian Academy of Science (the Branch of USSR Academy of Sciences) in 1981. She has an extensive research record in the areas of decision theory and decision support systems. Since 1992 she has been working in the Department of Information Systems of the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University, and is currently an Associate Professor, Associate Dean for Research Training, Founder and Director of the Knowledge Management Research Program and a virtual laboratory at the Caulfield School of IT.

Dr. Burstein was co-editor of Handbook of Decision Support Systems (with Clyde Holsapple) published by Springer in 2008. She has been Program Co-Chair for the Australian Conference on Knowledge Management and Intelligent Decision Support, Steering Committee member and Doctoral Colloquium faculty for the IFIP TC8/WG8.3 Working Conference International Conference on Collaborative Decision Making, Executive Committee Member of the Australian Council of Professors & Heads of Information Systems, Chair for the Association of Information Systems Special Interest Group in DSS, and Secretary for the IFIP WG 8.3 Decision Support Systems.

Dr. Burstein’s many editorial board assignments include serving as Guest Co-Editor for the special issue of Decision Support Systems "Decision Support in an Uncertain and Complex World" (with GeorgeWidmeyer), Guest Co-Editor for the special issues of the journal Information Systems and E-Business Management (with Clyde Holsapple), Area Editor for Decision Support Systems, Associate Editor for Journal of Decision Systems, Associate Editor for International Journal of Knowledge Management, and editorial board member for Journal of Knowledge Management Research and Practice and Journal of Information and Knowledge Management. In 2003, Dr. Burstein received the Monash University Postgraduate Association Supervisor of the Year award.

Patrick Brezillon is a researcher at the National Center for Scientific Research in Paris where his work focuses on the study of intelligent assistant systems, particularly the modelling of context and the relationship between collaborative decision making and context. His papers have appeared in such journals as IEEE Intelligent Systems, Knowledge Engineering Review, Expert Systems with Applications, International Journal on Human-Computer Studies, and AI Magazine. Dr. Brezillon directs the SART project, which is developing a system to support subway traffic control decisions when incidents occur, and the PROTEUS program, which is developing an integrated platform for supporting e-maintenance strategy. He was co-editor of Creativity and Innovation in Decision Making and Decision Support, Volumes 1 and 2, Ludic Publishing Ltd.
