Workshop on Behavioural Game Theory

5-6 July | Norwich 

The purpose of this workshop is to present current experimental research related to the topic of game theory.  We are particularly interested in work examining the role of communication in the play of games, but all papers that lie at the intersection of game theory and experimental economics will be considered.  The format of the conference will be a small number of relatively long talks, along with plenty of opportunities to discuss research with the goal of generating new projects.  The plenary speakers for the workshop will be Jordi Brandts, Daniele Nosenzo, and Bob Sugden.

If you are interested in presenting a paper at this workshop, please email an abstract or paper to Tom Cushan (T.Cushan@uea.ac.uk). The selection process will be selective and a small number of papers will be accepted.  We are especially interested in work by junior researchers.  We will cover meal expenses for those who have a submitted paper accepted for presentation, but will only be able to provide partial coverage for travel expenses (up to £500) and accommodation (2 nights).

The last date for submission of presentations is April 20, 2018, and we will let you know if your paper has been accepted for presentation by May 1.  You are welcome to attend the conference whether or not your paper is accepted, although you will naturally be responsible for any expenses.

Graduate students may also be interested in our PhD summer school course in behavioural game theory that immediately precedes the workshop (July 3 – 4).  The course is designed to provide a short introduction to experimental research related to behavioral game theory.  More information can be found here.

We are excited by this workshop and hope you will be attending!
