In all cases, the conferences/workshops gave a great opportunity from those around the globe interested in Group Decision and Negotiation to meet one another and share ideas.

In addition, a special issue of the Journal of Group Decision and Negotiation is produced from each year's best papers. Also since 2012 LNCS proceedings will be produced from selected papers.
Future activitiesThe next meeting will be in Toulouse, France. As with all of the conference/workshops, there will paper sessions, panels and tutorials. There will also be a Doctoral Consortium.

PublicationsFor nearly every year a special issue of Group Decision and Negotiation has been produced based on the annual conference. This journal is particularly appropriate as it covers the research and practice in the field.

In addition, a special issue of the European Journal of Operations Research 2003 has also appeared - on Soft OR - which provides a number of articles relevant to this working group.
