The GDN Section of INFORMS and the EURO Working Group on DSS are organizing the GDN2014 international conference to be held in Toulouse, France, at University Toulouse 1 Capitole, IRIT, on June 10th-13th,2014. The theme of this conference will be Group Decision Making and Web 3.0.

Group decision and negotiation focuses on complex and self-organizing processes that constitute multiparticipant, multicriteria, ill-structured, dynamic, and often evolutionary problems. Major approaches include: (1) applied game theory, experiment and social choice, (2) cognitive and behavioral sciences as applied to group decision and negotiation, (3) conflict analysis and resolution (4) software, specifically group decision support systems (GDSS) and negotiation support systems (GDNSS), (5) artificial intelligence, and (6) management science as related to group decision-making. Many research initiatives combine two or more of these fields.

In defining the domain of group decision and negotiation, the term "group" is interpreted to comprise all multiplayer contexts. Thus, organizational decision support systems providing organization-wide support are included. Group decision and negotiation refers to the whole process or flow of activities relevant to reaching a group decision, and not merely to the final choice - aspects of the process in group decision and negotiation include scanning, communication and information sharing, problem definition (representation) and evolution, alternative generation, and social-emotional interaction. Deblockedive, preblockedive, normative, and design viewpoints are all of interest. Thus, Group Decision and Negotiation deals broadly with relation and coordination in group processes.

Areas of application include, among others, intraorganizational coordination (as in operations management and integrated design, production, finance, marketing and distribution, including coordination of all phases of the product life cycle), computer supported collaborative work and meetings, computer-supported negotiations including internet-supported negotiations and negotiating agents, labor-management negotiations, interorganizational negotiations (including negotiations among businesses, governments, nonprofit organizations, and joint ventures), intercultural negotiations, environmental negotiations, etc. See the Journal Group Decision and Negotiation for further illustrations of the scope of the field of Group Decision and Negotiation.

Abstract:

It takes more than two to tango for responsible negotiation

When in 1942 Antoine de Saint-Exupery wrote "Each one of us, alone, is responsible for everyone," he laid down a foundation for responsible negotiation. Often, a common definition of negotiation makes it a game where each party is only responsible for his or her own personal success, independently of the other's outcome. Such an instinctive approach rarely leads to a good choreography by both. Win-win theories have expanded sole responsibility to a dual responsibility where at least one side strives for both sides' success, making it more likely for the negotiation dance to flow. The agency theory extended this responsibility through even more complex two level-games, where each side does not simply care about success at the negotiation table but also behind the table. It looks like for the negotiation dance to work, it must even explore stakeholders beyond the table. This conference will examine a broad responsibility approach and explore what the implications are for people, problems and process in negotiation.

Abstract:

Should we use bibliometric indices to evaluate research?

Higher education and research are often seen as affecting in a cru-cial way the economic performances of nations. Indeed, most countries devote a significant part of their resources to finance higher education and research institutions. Hence, we should expect that there is a growing tendency to evaluate and monitor their performances. Obvi-ously, their very nature makes this task difficult and complex.

We have recently witnessed a flourishing of evaluation agencies and a growing use of bibliometric indices of various kinds to evaluate indi-vidual scholars, departments, projects or universities.

The aim of this presentation is twofold. We will first outline the type of problems that may be encountered when evaluating research activities using standard bibliometric indices. We will then show how the classical tools provided by decision theory may be useful to an-alyze the theoretical properties of such indices. Our conclusion will be that some frequently used indices, such as the h-index, have rather undesirable properties.

This talk will be based on joint research with Thierry Marchant, Ghent University, Belgium.

Abstract:

Resolving Evaluation of Criteria by Interactive Flexible Elicitation in Group and Multicriteria Decision Aid

In Group Decision related to Multicriteria problems the facilitation process demands contributions in the intersection of many topics, such as: analytical constructs, cognitive process of individuals and the social interaction process of a group of decision makers (DMs). Evaluating weights of criteria is one of the most relevant issues in multicriteria decision problems with group decision aggregation process, particularly for additive models. There are many studies on eliciting scaling constants or weights of criteria based on DMs’ preferences, resulting in elicitation procedures available. Amongst them, the tradeoff procedure is considered to have the strongest theoretical foundation, although many inconsistencies have been found by applying this procedure in experimental studies. The basic reasons for that are related to the cognitive process of individuals and to the excessive effort demanded by such procedure. In group decision these inconsistencies may increase with the number of DMs. It is interesting to observe that the strongest axiomatic foundation of that elicitation procedure allowed realizing those inconsistencies. Therefore, we may argue that a facilitation process without analytical constructs may have many inconsistencies, which may not be perceived yet.

Following an overview of the several elicitation procedures and formal techniques for addressing them, an analysis is carried out on resolving evaluation of criteria by interactive flexible elicitation. It is shown a manner to overcome inconsistencies in previous procedure, by introducing the concept of flexible elicitation. Two main benefits are achieved by using flexible elicitation. It is easier for the DM to make comparisons of consequences based only on preference rather than on indifference relations and the information required from the DM is reduced to a minimum. This procedure is built into a group decision support system and applied in a few practical situations.

Abstract:

Reflections on Fairness and Rationality of Voting Rules Over the past decades a wide variety of voting rules have been introduced, criticized, modified, adopted or rejected. In contradistinction to many other institutions, voting rules are typically designed with a more or less clear motivation. One often mentioned motivation is that they should tease out the will of the people. In other words, the outcomes of voting rules, when applied to the opinions of the people, are expected to represent the collective will. Riker (1982) called this the populist view of democracy. It is not difficult to see that at least prima facie this view leads to problems since the very existence of several non-equivalent voting rules suggests that either the people have many minds even in cases where the expressed opinions remain stable, or at least some rules { perhaps all of them { simply aren't up to the task of uncovering the collective will.

Often the rules are motivated by fairness considerations. For example, it is argued that every individual ought to be given an equal a priori weight in determining the voting outcome. Similarly, it may be insisted that each voting alternative should be equally treated in the voting process, or that additional support should never harm an alternative. After a brief historical excursion, we summarize a host of voting rules in terms of various desiderata stemming from different conceptions of fairness and collective) rationality. Our special focus is on how relevant are the theoretical results in guiding the choice of a voting rule.

The rule-desideratum- combinations undoubtedly give us information about what may or may not happen when various rules are being applied. Choosing rules with as many advantages as possible would be one plausible way of proceeding. Another way is to approach the problem of disclosing the will of the people in a more straight-forward manner: start from a hypothetical situation involving a given number of voters and alternatives such that the will of the people can be unambiguously determined. An obvious candidate for such a situation is one where all voters have identical rankings over candidates. Then obviously this ranking can also be viewed as the will of the people.

Often we are looking for rules that - given the observed individual preference rankings - give a social ranking. This approach would then suggest looking for the collective ranking that is closest to the observed individual rankings in a sense of some distance measure defined for pairs of profiles. Varying the hypothetical situations of “consensus" and the metric used in measuring distances between observed preference profiles and the hypothetical ones, one can define voting rules in a natural way. It turns out that many existing rules can be characterized in this manner, i.e. can be given a distance rationalization.

An aspect of voting rules that has not been given the amount of attention is deserves is power. This is not to say that voting power per se has not been extensively studied. It has (see e.g. Holler and Nurmi, eds. 2013), but the typical setting focused upon involves binary agendas and a sequence of ballots. Yet, a glance at the role that the agenda-setter plays in determining the voting outcomes reveals that the a priori voting power indices may give a misleading picture of the determinants of voting outcomes.

Rationality is often invoked as a criterion for selecting a voting rule. Indeed, the result nowadays known as the Condorcet Jury Theorem can be (and has been) seen as a powerful argument for the one-person-one-vote principle in dichotomous voting contexts. However, it is based on rather stringent assumptions regarding voter competence. In expert decision making other types of problems emerge, e.g. is it possible to maximize the probability of correct decisions by assigning different weights on experts reflecting their competence?

Maximizing group competence leads to judgment aggregation problems and to the fundamental question of the proper scope of voting in deciding complex issues. Of particular importance here are epistemic paradoxes. We shall briefly discuss some of these.
