The Tenth International Symposium on Biology of Decision Making (SBDM 2021) is scheduled to take place on May 10-12, 2021, at the Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle, 47 Boulevard de l'Hôpital, 75013 Paris, France.

In case the situation does not permit us to organize it onsite, we have a backup solution to move it fully online. The decision (onsite/online) cannot be taken for the moment, due to the current high level of uncertainty. We plan to make this decision at the latest two months ahead of the meeting.

The objective of this three-day symposium will be to gather people from different research fields with different approaches (economics, ethology, psychiatry, robotics, neural and computational approaches) to decision making.

The conference will include 5 sessions:

1. Facing the consequences of one's decisions (Chair: Patrick Haggard)
2. Decision-making manipulations in labs and clinics (chair: Mathias Pessiglione)
3. Decision-making in computational modeling, robotics and AI (Chairs: Kenji Doya, Mehdi Khamassi)
4. Compared cognition across primate species (Chair: Sébastien Bouret)
5. Mutual benefits: Incorporating learning rules in sequential sampling models (Chair: Birte Forstmann)
