Party! Party!

Recall what DSN recently said about Tilburg:

Decision Science News recently visited the Marcel Zeelenberg, Diederik Stapel, Gideon Keren and the gang (which is a very impressive gang indeed) at Tilburg in the Netherlands. It left with the impression that its other visitors (another very impressive gang) had–that this is a first rate place to work in psychology and behavioral economics, as well as one in which the people there really know how to live. Savoir faire, joie de vivre, they have it all. Why stay where you are with happiness level X when you could apply to Tilburg and, if you make it, achieve happiness level 2X? Interested? Read on:
