The International Conference on Multidimensional Finance, Insurance and Investment is devoted to the recent developments and applications of the Multi-Criteria Decision Aid tools in the field of finance and insurance. This scientific event disseminates recent methods and procedures designed to solve problems related to finance, insurance and investments formulated through analytical operational research models in a multidimensional framework that takes into consideration multiple conflicting and incommensurable decision objectives. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from all over the world to discuss recent theoretical and methodological developments as well as new empirical results. Given the popularity of financial portfolio optimization within the fields of finance and operational research, and the large number of active researchers, the idea of organizing an international workshop on multi-attribute portfolio selection (MAPS) was initiated in Helsinki in 2005 and chaired by Pekka Korhonen. The second edition of this scientific event took place in Montreal and was organized by Belaid Aouni in 2007. The third edition was organized by Alejandro Balbas in Madrid in 2009. The international committee has decided to replace the MAPS workshops by an International Conference on Multidimensional Finance, Insurance and Investment (ICMFII). The 2011 edition of the ICMFII held on April 14-16, in Hammamet (Tunisia) and chaired by Fouad Ben Abdelaziz. The fifth edition of the ICMFII was organized on November 25-27, 2013 in Bahrain and chaired by Minwir Al-Shammari. The sixth edition of this conference took place on June 26-29, in Alcoy (Spain). The 7th edition will be organized by the Technical University of Crete (Financial Engineering Laboratory, conference chairs: Michael Doumpos and Constantin Zopounidis) on May 10-12, 2018 in Chania, Greece. There will be plenary talks by invited speakers as well as contributed talks.
