ESA-announce Social Norms and Institutions: Model Building, Empirical Corroborations, and Applications

Posted on 2015/02/18. Filed under: 綜合 |

Call for Papers

Social Norms and Institutions: Model Building, Empirical Corroborations, and Applications
International Conference at the Congressi Stefano Franscini (CSF) of ETH Zurich, Monte Verità, Ascona Switzerland
10-15 May 2015

Organizers: Andreas Diekmann, Ernst Fehr, Ryan Murphy, Roberto Weber
Conference email: sni2015


Social norms and institutions have had a large impact on how people behave in daily life, on economic activity, on solving political conflicts, and on the welfare of nations. By definition "Institutions are the humanly devised constraints that structure political, economic and social interaction" (Douglas North). Property rights, democratic institutions, patent rights, auction rules, divorce laws, voting rules, financial market and environmental regulations serve as examples of institutions. “Perverse” incentives leading to undesirable and inefficient outcomes for the society at large is an important topic in this research program, as sensible looking incentive mechanisms can lead to a variety of unintended consequences. Social norms and institutions govern all areas of society. Several authors have developed theories that propose that the character of institutions is a key factor in explaining why states prosper or fail.

Modern research in the field of norms and institutions relies on new theories and methods such as the concepts and theories of asymmetric information, signaling, social networks, classical and behavioral decision theory and game theory, psychological theories of motivation etc. Research is conducted by various methods: Case studies, survey studies, field experiments, lab experiments and computer simulation studies. Here are some examples of research questions:

  • How do social norms of cooperation emerge endogenously without third-party intervention?
  • What is the impact of social norms versus monetary incentives on human behavior?
  • Which type of institutional rules will promote and sustain cooperation in social dilemmas?
  • Which type of institutions will emerge to solve problems of trust, risk and asymmetric information?
  • How are “social preferences” relevant to explaining the efficient functioning and behavioral consequences of institutions?
  • There are an increasing number of rating systems and reputation institutions, both in the “offline” world and on the internet. What are the effects, and side effects, of these new institutions?
  • What are the distributional implications of norms and institutions?
  • What are the proper institutional schemes to tackle problems of climate change, corruption, international negotiations, financial crises and the risks of bank failures?

The conference will offer a platform for the exchange of ideas for experts developing, testing and applying theories of social norms and institutions in diverse social sciences. Invited participants are from a variety of countries and have different disciplinary backgrounds.

Speakers are from the department of Humanities at ETH and the Economics department at the University of Zurich. In addition, the following invited speakers will give presentations at the conference: Christina Bicchieri, University of Pennsylvania, Martin Dufwenberg, University of Arizona, Robert C. Ellickson, Yale Law School, Uri Gneezy, University of California San Diego, Christine Horne, Washington State University, Siegwart Lindenberg, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, Werner Raub, University of Utrecht, Linda Steg, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, Thomas Voss, University of Leipzig.

We welcome further contributions. Contributions (title, abstract, manuscript if available) should be submitted no later than 31 January 2015 to Stefan Wehrli (sni2015). Please mention whether you are applying for a conference presentation or a poster session.

See the conference website: for a description of the venue and for conference fees.

ESA-announce Fully funded PhD position combining agent-based modelling and laboratory experiments

Posted on 2015/02/18. Filed under: 綜合 |

Interested students are welcome to apply for this fully-funded PhD position before March 15 2015.

PhD position – Closing the gap between the real world and the lab? Agent technology to extrapolate behavior change in the lab.

University of Societal Impact:
The University of Twente is strong in creating societal impact of its research by combining an entrepreneurial attitude with design solutions for societal problems. The faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social Sciences has recently launched an investment programme called Tech4people to strengthen its academic fields. We are looking for candidates for 7 pioneering multidisciplinary projects, including this one.

Job specification
In a modern society people regularly face decisions involving considerable risks. These include financial and social risks, uncertainty about future economic climate or risk of natural disasters. A rational agent paradigm alone cannot capture the whole complexity of people’s decision making. Behavioral sciences showed that such decisions are biased, and that biases in risk perception change with time depending on the information provided, on how it was framed, and on interactions within one’s social network. Social amplification of risks may exaggerate or attenuate perceptions of risks, corresponding behavioral choices, and their cumulative consequences for a society. This calls for tools that can trace changes in risk perceptions and corresponding behavioral changes in societies over long time-scales explicitly accounting for social interactions.

The ambition of this PhD project is to combine the strengths of laboratory experiments with human subjects and agent-based simulations to explore effects of risk information on risk perceptions and behavioral changes. Specifically, the project focuses on changes in individual risk perception and subsequent risky choices when people are exposed to information individually versus when social interactions with peers are allowed. It is important to know effects of scaling up laboratory results in time and in the number of participants. Modern technology permits running online large-scale experiments with mixed subjects – humans and computer agents parameterized with small-scale laboratory experiment data. This project focuses on flood risks.

Your profile

You have a master degree and experience in either (1) psychology/experimental economics with programming skills or experience with agent-based modeling, or (2) mathematics/computer science with interest in psychology or decision-making under risk in general. You have strong quantitative skills, ability to program, knowledge of statistics and capacity to perform data analysis. You write and speak fluently in English. You have independent research and publication skills. Knowledge in the field of risk research or laboratory experiments is an advantage.

To apply for this position, please go to and select the current position from the list to fill in the online application form before March 15, 2015. Please include (1) your cover letter, (2) resume, and (3) a list of publications (if applicable).

Starting date: around May 2015. First reviews and interviews will start on March 16, 2015.

For more information on this position please contact Dr. T.Filatova (t.filatova, p.w.devries, j.vanhillegersberg, ).

Our offer
We offer a very challenging position in an inspiring environment. This position is a PhD project. As a PhD candidate you will be appointed in a full-time position for a period of three years (38 hours a week), leading to a dissertation. The gross monthly salary for a PhD increases from € 2125,- in the first year to € 2593,- in the third year (in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities). The University of Twente offers additional attractive employment conditions.

International Conference on the Policy Implications of Systemic Risk Models and Measures
Call for Papers

4-5 June 2015, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The Amsterdam School of Finance and Risk Management and the Econometrics Group of VU University Amsterdam organize a conference on the edge between systemic risk models and measures and actual policy making. The conference aims to bring together academics, policy makers, and professionals and is part of the SYRTO project (Systemic Risk Tomography), sponsored by the FP7 EU framework.

The motivation for the conference is that much research has been devoted to the modeling of systemic risk. This has led to many valuable qualitative insights. On the other hand, much econometric work has been done as well, leading to a range of different systemic risk measures. A key challenge is to determine how qualitative insights can best be transformed into concrete policy triggers, as well as how alternative systemic risk measures can help to support actual policy making.

TOPICS: We invite papers on the following (and related) topics:
1. Policy implications for systemic risk;
2. New model insights for systemic risk;
3. Novel systemic risk measurement methodologies and their policy use;
4. Empirical comparisons of existing systemic risk measurement methodologies.

The final program will include both submitted and invited papers, as well as a poster session.
