Our Mission: Develop, Apply, Transfer

Mission Statement Decision Support and Risk Management National and Homeland Securty Infrastructure Assurance Emergency Preparedness Social Dynamics Policy Analysis Systems Analysis Modeling, Simulation, and Visualization Complex Adaptive Syatems Decision Support and Risk Management Information Sciences The Decision and Information Sciences (DIS) Division—a multidisciplinary organization at Argonne National Laboratory—is focused on providing tools to assist decision makers in making informed choices, even in times when the volume of information is growing at a rapid pace, becoming increasingly complex, and fraught with uncertainties. Our staff of engineers, scientists, software developers, operations researchers, economists, sociologists, political scientists, and lawyers work together to develop tools designed to be useful, usable, and used.

The DIS mission is to:

DEVELOP innovative decision support tools, including simulation models, databases, and analytical methodologies that can be used to provide quantitative information to decision makers;

APPLY these tools to the analysis and solution of problems of national, local, and international significance; and

TRANSFER these tools to the community of researchers and end users for their own implementation.
