Annual Interdisciplinary Symposium on Decision Neuroscience (ISDN), Philadelphia, June 5-6, 2020

Filed in Conferences
Subscribe to Decision Science News by Email (one email per week, easy unsubscribe)

DEADLINE FOR ORAL PRESENTATIONS: FEB 15, 2020

On June 5-6 2020, Temple University will host the 10th Annual Interdisciplinary Symposium on Decision Neuroscience (ISDN) in Philadelphia, PA. This symposium is unique in that it brings together a range of constituencies involved in the use of neuroscience techniques to understand consumer decision making – world renowned academics, neuroscience research companies, marketing research executives and industry leaders. It offers an opportunity to learn, present and discuss the latest breakthroughs on using neuroscientific and physiological measures to inform decision making in individuals, groups, societies, organizations, and markets. For more information, please visit our website https://www.fox.temple.edu/conferences/isdn2020/ or contact us at isdn20@temple.edu

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION
Deadline for Oral presentations: February 15, 2020 Late-breaking poster presentations will be accepted for review until May 10, 2020 (11:59 p.m. EDT).

The organizing committee will select papers for presentation at the symposium based on extended abstracts (one page, single spaced). The abstract should state the study’s objectives, briefly describe the methods, summarize the results and state the conclusions. The body of the abstract should be no longer than 2,300 characters, including punctuation (not spaces). *All abstracts should be emailed to isdn20@temple.edu https://www.fox.temple.edu/conferences/isdn2020/call-for-papers/isdn2020 by 11:59 pm EST on February 15, 2020*. Decisions about the abstracts will be communicated to the authors by March 15, 2020. Selected papers would ideally not be published prior to the symposium.

Selections will be based on quality, relevance to decision neuroscience, and contribution to breadth of topics and interdisciplinary approaches and relevance for industry. (Note that all abstracts do not necessarily require neuroscience data but should have the potential to encourage discussions about a possible role for neuroscience.) We consider not just the individual merits of the papers, but how they complement other submissions from scholars in different fields to form a cohesive session. The organizers will invite authors of the abstracts not selected for talks to present their work as posters. Preference will also be given to new speakers.

Limited travel awards will be available to offset expenses for students and junior faculty. More details about the conference, registration, invited speakers, travel awards and accommodations will be updated regularly on our website https://www.fox.temple.edu/conferences/isdn2020/. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email:
isdn20@temple.edu.

SPECIAL PRE-CONFERENCE ON SOCIAL INFLUENCES ON LEARNING
Chairs: Johanna Jarcho and Vishnu Murty, College of Liberal Arts, Temple University

This year’s conference will feature a special pre-conference on June 4 examining Social Influences on Learning. Humans are experts at navigating complex social environments. These processes rely on the ability to integrate prior experiences of social exchanges with current information to make adaptive decisions. This pre-conference will focus on the behavioral and neural mechanisms that guide our ability to extract and store information from social interactions and use this information to support concurrent behavior. The pre-conference will provide a unique opportunity to examine social learning through the lens of multiple academic disciplines including cognitive neuroscience, social psychology, marketing, and decision making. There is no fee to attend the pre-conference as long as you are registered for the main conference. This half-day session will consist of three invited talks, three accepted talks and a poster session. If you would like to present in this pre-conference, please submit your abstracts (in the same format as the main conference) to sociallearning.ISDN2020@gmail.com by 11:59 pm EST on Mar 31, 2020. You may submit the same abstract to both the main conference and pre-conference, but they must be emailed independently for consideration in both.

Organizing Committee: Crystal Reeck – Temple University; Vinod Venkatraman Temple University
Advisory Committee: Carolyn Yoon – University of Michigan; Uma Karmarkar – University of California San Diego; Angelika Dimoka – University of Houston; Drazen Prelec – MIT

STANDARD ERRORS VS STANDARD DEVIATIONS


Click to enlarge

There’s an ancient haiku that goes:

People confuse a
well-estimated mean with
a certain outcome

Ok, that’s not true.

But Jake Hofman, Dan Goldstein, and Jessica Hullman have a new paper (recently accepted at CHI 2020) about this.

They bet you’ll think the results of their paper look are more impressive if you look at the plot on the left pane than if you look at the one on the right.

At least that what the results of their paper say.

Preprint here: http://bit.ly/353kBtj

There’s only a limited number of PDFs available, so grab one today.

Ok, that’s not true either.

Special thanks to @iamwillcai and @_JenAllen for their RAship on this!
