The annual conference of the Behavioral Science & Policy Association (BSPA) will be on September 19, 2017 in New York City. Attendees include leading behavioral scientists, policy makers, behavioral science consultants, private and public sector executives, and members of the media,

BSPA is receiving proposals for short presentations highlighting research in eight key areas in which behavioral scientists could have significant influence on policy. These include:

– Education & Culture
– Energy & Environment
– Development
– Financial Decision Making
– Health
– Justice & Ethics
– Management & Labor
– Technology & Innovation

Some of the scheduled speakers include:

– Robert Cialdini (Arizona University)
– Bror Saxberg (Kaplan)
– Bridget Terry Long (Harvard)
– Denise Rousseau (Carnegie Mellon)
– Eldar Shafir (Princeton)
– Jenn Lerner (Harvard)
– Jens Ludwig (Chicago)
– Peter Ubel (Duke)
– Rick Larrick (Duke)
– Andrew Hargadon (UC Davis)
– Steven Sloman (Brown University)

The short presentation session is designed to inform and influence academics, policy makers, and managers. Presentations may demonstrate recent key research findings (potentially from multiple papers) with meaningful implications for policy and practice and need not present new work-in-progress. These presentations should not be highly technical. Rather, presenters should craft presentations in the style of TED talks.

Submission Deadline: June 19, 2017
