The Final Proceedings for Intelligent decisions Intelligent support, 29 August 2005 - 2 September 2005. The meeting is not organized as a conventional meeting with paper presentation in sessions, but rather as a structured discussion on a central theme. A number of themes will be addressed. The idea has therefore emerged to reconvene the participants from the meeting in San Miniato in 1985, to take a second look at intelligent decision support systems IDSS, and to discuss what has actually happened in the twenty years that have passed. The motivation is that IDSS still is an important research and application area, but that we also now know where the ambitions were too high. More concretely, the purpose is both to assess what has happened in the field in the twenty years that have gone, and to develop a perspective on what needs to be done in the future. Since many of the 1985 participants have been actively engaged in the field, they are certainly in a unique position to do this. The first 2.5 days will be reserved for the participants of the 1985 AS, to compare the view on IDSS of 1985 with the present 2005 view. The following 2.5 days will welcome new participants, to provide a more extensive discussion of the state-of-the-art, of needs and requirements to IDSS now and the near term, and of ongoing developments.
