GDN 2021, Toronto, Canada

The 21st International Conference on Group Decision and Negotiation (GDN 2021) was held virtually from June 6 to 10, 2021, hosted by Ryerson University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. GDN 2021 was the first virtual international conference on group decision and negotiation. GDN 2021 was originally scheduled to be held at Ryerson University from June 6 to 10, 2021. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a world-wide health crisis, the GDN 2021 General and Program Chairs decided on January 25, 2021 that GDN 2021 would be held virtually (i.e. entirely online) on the originally scheduled 2021 dates.
