Abstract

During the 1999 International Symposium on Environmental Software Systems (ISESS), held at the University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand, a two day workshop was conducted to examine the nature and characteristics of environmental decision support systems (EDSS). A reasonable informal definition of the composition, effectiveness, characterization and future of EDSS was captured from a fruitful discussion. Four of the participants contributed in writing to the discussion.
