ESA-announce Never miss another event! www.be-events.org
I am writing to introduce you to a new website which I hope will become an essential tool for our field. The website is www.be-events.org, and aims to collate all events internationally in Behavioural Science, Behavioural Economics and Judgement and Decision Making research.
Events include both academic talks, as well as practitioner workshops.
The site is a free resource for all. To maximise its potential, it really needs your help keeping the site full of exciting events and conferences! So please, if you have an event coming up you would like to promote, or you see an event is missing from the list, please add it to the website for all to see!
3 Key Features:
1. In the top right-hand corner, there is an ‘add event’ button, where you can create your own events for the site (please include a picture!). These new events will be moderated and appear on the site within 12 hours.
2. At the bottom left of the page, you will also see the feature to add the list of events to your google calendar (or any other kind of calendar software you use). This is a useful way of keeping up to date without having to check the site regularly. You can also click through to any individual event and add just this event to your calendar in the same way.
3. Events are categorised by geographic region, currently these are "UK, "Europe (non-uk)", "North America" and "Asia. There will be more specific categories once the site grows with more events. You can search events in just your region by clicking the ‘categories’ drop down box near the top of the main page.
If any organisation is interested in partnering with the website, do get in touch. We are currently delighted to have BE-works (http://www.beworks.ca/) and #oglivychange (http://www.ogilvychange.com/) as our partners, whose sponsorship helps to maintain the site.
The site was created by Joe Gladstone, a graduate student at the University of Cambridge. Your comments and suggestions are welcome!
