ESA-announce WESSI 2015
The Division of Social Sciences, the Social Sciences Experimental Laboratory (SSEL) at New York University Abu Dhabi, and the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute are pleased to sponsor the 2015 Winter Experimental Social Sciences Institute (WESSI 2015) at NYU Abu Dhabi January 7-22, 2015, see
WESSI 2015 is designed to provide training for social science graduate students and junior faculty in experimental methods, broadly defined (lab, field, lab-in-the-field, biological, and survey experiments will be covered). The 2015 Institute will also include special sessions on the issues and concerns of conducting experiments in Africa, the Middle East, and the surrounding region. Students at the Institute will be given the opportunity to receive personal feedback on their own research, through presentations and from meeting individually with faculty (see list of faculty below).
Due to generosity from the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute, students at WESSI 2015 will not pay tuition and shared housing will be provided free of charge. Students are only responsible for their own transportation expenses and most meals.
Applications will be accepted until August 1st and selected participants will be notified by September 1st.
