Summer Institute on Bounded Rationality

Foundations for an Interdisciplinary Decision Theory

3 – 10 July, 2012

Directed by Gerd Gigerenzer

Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition

Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin, Germany

It is our pleasure to announce the upcoming Summer Institute on Bounded Rationality 2012 – Foundations of an Interdisciplinary Decision Theory, which will take place from July 3 – 10, 2012 at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin.

The Summer Institute will provide a platform for genuinely interdisciplinary research, bringing together young scholars from psychology, biology, philosophy, economics, and other social sciences. Its focus will be on “decision making in the wild” – how cognition adapts to real-world decision-making environments. One of its aims is to provide participants a deeper understanding of the way humans come to grips with a fundamentally uncertain world, with an emphasis on applied contexts such as social interactions, medicine, justice, business, and politics.

Talented graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from around the world are invited to apply by March 31, 2012. We will provide all participants with accommodation and stipends to cover part of their travel expenses. Details on the Summer Institute and the application process are available at http://www.mpib-berlin.mpg.de/en/research/adaptive-behavior-and-cognition/summer-institute-2012

Please pass on this information to potential candidates from your own department or institute.
