CALL FOR PAPERS

Following the success of the ECBE Conferences in 2015 and 2016 we are happy to announce that the 3rd Early-Career Behavioral Economics Conference will take place in Pittsburgh on the 16-17 of June, 2017. The conference will be sponsored by the Russell Sage Foundation and hosted by The Department of Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU).

The Russell Sage Foundation is the principal American foundation devoted exclusively to research in the social sciences and was an early force in the development of behavioral economics. For more information, visit www.russellsage.org.

Objective

The goal of this conference is to provide a platform for researchers who are at an early stage of their academic career to present their research and receive feedback from peer discussants. The conference seeks to promote the development of a community of early-career behavioral economics researchers. George Loewenstein (CMU) and Linda Babcock (CMU) will be keynote speakers.

Eligibility

Any early-career behavioral economist is invited to apply. This includes graduate students, Post-Doctoral researchers, and Assistant Professors who received their Ph.D. after Spring 2012. We will select 20 applicants to present papers, and 20 additional applicants to serve as discussants. We encourage applications from early-career researchers who have not participated in ECBE.

Costs

There is no conference fee. Conference meals will be covered for invited participants. In cases where financial assistance is not available from a researcher’s university, hotel and economy class travel expenses will be reimbursed for presenters and discussants (up to $1000 for travel from Europe and up to $350 for travel from North America except Pittsburgh). Please note that participants are not eligible for financial assistance if they received financial assistance from RSF for participating in the 2015 ECBE.

    Can i attend this conference to hear the speakers? I am a teacher and trainer focusing on the financial sector in India and i currently am in Atlanta on a sabbatical. Behavioural finance is an area of interest and I follow research in this field closely to understand how choices around financial products are made. I will cover all my costs to travel and attend the conference. Thank you.
