ESA-announce 2012 North-American ESA Meetings in Tucson
The 2012 North-American ESA meeting will be held at the Westward Look resort, Tucson, from Thursday evening November 15 (reception) through 6:00 p.m. Saturday November 17. Please make your hotel reservation through the Westward Look (800 722-2500) and mention that you are part of the ESA group in order to obtain the reduced rate of $129 for a singe/double room and $139 for a triple/quad room.
This year there will be special panel discussion marking the 50th year of experimental economics. Four pioneers of experimental economics (John Kagel, Charles Plott, Reinhard Selten, and Vernon Smith) will offer their perspectives on how the field developed and where it should be headed. Financial support for this event from Caltech, Chapman University, George Mason University, and the University of Technology Sydney is gratefully acknowledged.
We are also delighted to announce that Guillaume Frechette (NYU) and Ulrike Malmendier (UC Berkeley) have agreed to be plenary speakers.
