Most of the research activities of the department belong to the field of applied mathematics. The focus is on theoretical problems as well as problems connected with implementation of methods in the following areas:

  • mathematical optimization
  • nonsmooth analysis
  • differential equations
  • variational problems
  • probabilistic models of decision support systems
  • conditional independence structures
  • alternative calculi of uncertainty in artificial intelligence

A series of Workshops on Uncertainty Processing (WUPES) has been held in the Czech Republic every third year since 1988. Proceedings from several previous workshops can be found on their websites ( WUPES'12, WUPES'09, and WUPES'06). Like the previous meetings the forthcoming Workshop will foster creative intellectual activities and the exchange of ideas in an informal atmosphere.


Following a longstanding tradition, the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague and the Instutite of Information Theory and Automation of the Czech Academy of Sciences will organize the 43rd Spring School on Analysis.

The School will be held at Paseky nad Jizerou, in a chalet in the Krkonose Mountains, April 19 -25, 2015.

Mariánská - zimní pohled

The Winter School of Department of Decision-Making Theory is a popular meeting point of students and researchers from the department and other colaborating researchers from several Czech institutions as well as guests from abroad. It is held in the UTIA's chalet. The program of the 2015 edition of the MTR Winter School will consist mainly of tutorial talks given by participants.
