Welcome to GDN 2018
GDN 2018, the 18th International Conference on Group Decision and Negotiation

We cordially invite submissions to GDN 2018, the 18th International Conference on Group Decision and Negotiation, which will take place at Nanjing, China, 9th -13th June 2018. The conference is the prime forum for researchers and practitioners in the fields of group decision and negotiation. It offers a truly international setting with participants from Europe, Americas, Asia, Africa, and Oceania. A Doctoral Consortium will precede the conference, on 9th June 2018. There will be a dedicated student track offering pre-doctoral students an opportunity to present (preliminary) work and to receive valuable feedback, and it also will provide PhD students with a unique opportunity to present and discuss their work in small groups with leading researchers in the field.

GDN 2018 is the 18th annual meeting organised by the INFORMS section on Group Decision and Negotiation. Conference topics will be organised in several streams and include all aspects of group decision and negotiation such as

  • Technological Foundations
  • Systems Design and Use
  • Methodological Foundations
  • Theoretical Foundations
  • Behavioural Aspects
  • Applications

Conference proceedings will be published in a volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP), as well as a local proceedings volume for authors who choose to retain copyrights to their papers. Some selected papers will be considered for publication in the Springer journal Group Decision and Negotiation and the Journal of Systems Science and Systems Engineering.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Nanjing.
