Preferences are a central concept of decision making and are becoming of increasing importance for computational fields such as artificial intelligence, databases, and human-computer interaction. Preference models are needed in decision-support systems such as web-based recommender systems and configurators, in autonomous systems such as Mars rovers, and in multiagent systems dealing with social choice problems. This broadened scope of preferences leads to new types of preference models, new problems for applying preference structures, and new kinds of benefits. Preferences are studied in many areas of artificial intelligence and are an inherently multidisciplinary topic, of interest to economists, computer scientists, operations researchers, mathematicians and more.
