Application deadline: March 9, 2014.

We invite talented graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to the annual Summer Institute on Bounded Rationality hosted by Gerd Gigerenzer (Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition) and Ralph Hertwig (Center for Adaptive Rationality). The Summer Institute will gather distinguished scientists and 35 talented young researchers from diverse backgrounds for an interdisciplinary summer school on the importance of simple solutions to the complex problems of the modern world.

Participants will be given access to the fundamentals, the methods, and the most recent and cutting-edge research on bounded rationality in various talks and small-group workshops. They and the invited faculty will present their research and learn, practice, and discuss how the simple can outperform the complex. This also involves debates and questions, allowing to network with internationally renowned researchers and fellow young scholars.

Planned highlights of the program include talks and workshops by:
Gerd Gigerenzer ++ Ralph Hertwig ++ Thorsten Pachur ++ Henry Brighton ++ Jan Woike ++ Shenghua Luan ++ Mirjam Jenny ++ Uwe Czienskowski ++ Hansjorg Neth ++ Odette Wegwarth ++ Juliane Kämmer ++ Tim Pleskac ++ Jens Krause ++ Peter Todd ++ Florian Artinger ++ …

Our stipends cover accommodation including breakfast. The accommodation will be organized by us. The stipend also covers part of the travelling expenses depending on your means of transportation: Up to 300 EUR for Intercontinental flights and 150 EUR for European travel from outside of Germany.
