In this note, we stress the relevance of developing tools for modelling uncertainty in information management and decision aiding, conceived as previous stages for decision making. We discuss the general framework of modelling uncertainty in decision making problems and briefly introduce the specific models we have selected to illustrate these ideas, as developed by researchers.
