Clarkson University Interdisciplinary Judgment and Decision Making Mini-Conference Nov. 18

Clarkson University’s Department of Psychology will host its first Interdisciplinary Judgment and Decision Making Mini-Conference on November 18.

Students and faculty from Clarkson University as well as speakers from four international research institutions (Max Planck Institute Berlin, Stanford University, University of California Los Angeles and the University of Basel) will meet and present their research on various topics of judgment and decision making.

The talks include, but are not limited, to experimental studies of judgment and decision-making scenarios, experimental economic approaches to individual and group behavior, the development of decision-making capacities, decision-making models in animal behavior, the effects of culture on decision-making strategies, the discussion of relevant normative theories and decision-making applications to medicine, consumer behavior, law, and business.

The attending faculty will come from a wide area of disciplines that share an interest in judgment and decision making (e.g., psychology, economics, biology, anthropology, and computer science).

In addition to student and faculty research presentations, there will be time for meeting people from different academic areas in their study of decision-making capacities.

The conference is free for students and faculty from all academic institutions.

Registration is required by e-mailing Andreas Wilke at awilke@clarkson.edu by November 2.
