ESA-announce Final reminder: Deadline (July 6) for the ESA NA Conference Antigua Guatemala

Posted on 2018/07/06. Filed under: 綜合 |

Apologies for the multiple emails. This is the final reminder that the submission deadline for the ESA North American Conference in Antigua Guatemala closes at COB Friday, July 6. (This is also the submission deadline for the pre-conference workshop on Choice Process Data).

This is just a reminder that deadline for submissions to present at the North American ESA Conference in Antigua Guatemala is coming up (July 1; submission instructions down below).

We will have an excellent program starting with the preceding NSF-funded Workshop on ChoiceProcess Data in Experimental Economics,organized by Ian Krajbich (The Ohio State University) and Charles Noussair (University of Arizona). Our list of speakers is first class: Keynote speakers for the Conference (Juan Camilo Cardenas, Universidad de los Andes and Marie Claire Villeval, CNRS, GATE – University of Lyon, and IZA); Invited speakers for the workshop (Giorgio Coricelli, University of Southern California, Susann Fiedler, Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods, Nicolette Sullivan, Duke University and Eric J. Johnson, Columbia).

The social program will also be outstanding: In addition to the traditional welcome reception (on the late afternoon of October 18th), we will have a conference dinner (by . All of this in the tiny city of Antigua Guatemala: one of the most beautiful and best-preserved colonial cities in the Americas and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

(For those who are budget constrained, keep in mind that Antigua offers a wide variety of options for dining and accommodations that can satisfy any budget; check out a list of hotel options. And for those who are parents, we are working to find affordable childcare options in Antigua so that you may enjoy the conference and the city.)

Submissions instructions
To submit an abstract, please REBEL with the subject line "ESA paper submission – LastName").

Please keep in mind that in order to submit an abstract, you have to be a registered paid member of the Economic Science Association (ESA). To register and become a paid member, click here and complete the relevant information.

If you want your submission to be considered for the Workshop on Choice-Process Data, please make sure you indicate your interest using the button at the bottom of the talk submission form. If it is not accepted for the workshop, it will still be considered for the main ESA Conference.

(If you are interested in presenting or attending the pre-conference workshop, please make sure to put the ‘free’ workshop in your shopping cart when registering and paying).

On a final and separate note, some of you may have heard about the Volcano eruption in Guatemala. Although tragic for the communities on the outskirts of the volcano, it should be noted that this does not represent any danger for the population and visitors of Antigua. International events in Antigua are ongoing without interruption or concern, and tourism activities are taking place as usual.

We look forward to seeing you all in Antigua!

On behalf of the organizing committee,

New call for papers – Simulations in economics

Posted on 2018/07/04. Filed under: 綜合 |

Œconomia – History/Methodology/Philosophy

Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to inform you that Œconomia launches a new call for
papers :

From thought experiments to Agent Based Models and calibration. Reflecting
(on) the many facets of simulations in economics.

Editors of special issue: Muriel Dal Pont Legrand (Université Nice Sophia
Antipolis), John Davis (Marquette University and University of Amsterdam),
Magda Fontana (Università di Torino), Cyril Hédoin (Université de Reims –
Champagne-Ardenne), Alan Kirman (EHESS).

The call is available at


We invite you to circulate this call to your interested colleagues.

Best regards

On behalf of the editors
Jean-Sébastien Lenfant

From thought experiments to Agent Based Models and calibration. Reflecting
(on) the many facets of simulations in economics.

Expression of interest: July 30th 2018.

Notification by the editors: August 30th 2018.

Dedicated Workshop at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, February-March
2019 (to be confirmed)

Deadline for submission of revised papers: May 30th 2019.

Planned publication of the issue: March 2020.

Simulation as a method of investigation or of validation in economics has been
used steadily although with parsimony since the second half of the 20th
century. Perhaps it would be more correct to say that simulation methods have
been confined to the work done by economists that has never come to the
foreground and rarely been debated, in contrast to the extensive literature on
the use of experimental methods in economics. However, there is now a growing
awareness that a body of practices in economics can be grouped together under
the heading of simulation methods, and share a number of specific goals within
economics as a whole. Historians of economic thought still largely ignore this
territory (Colander (ed.), 2000; Fontaine and Leonard (eds), 2005) and it is
only over the last decade that there has been a growing interest for
methodological and epistemological issues linked with simulation proper (e.g.
Reiss, 2011; Fontana, 2006; Grüne-Yanoff & Weirich, 2010). Recent advances in
the use of Agent-Based Models in economics, as well as continuous developments
of technologies and transformations in the representations of economic
practices, make simulations an ever more attracting or even a necessary step
in theoretical and applied work in economics. The time is ripe for reflecting
on the recent and older trends pushing forward simulation in economics,
discussing and confronting their contexts of development and purposes, and
elaborating on the various kinds of epistemological or methodological stances
that account for their proper use in economics and other social sciences.

Œconomia intends to publish a special issue covering these various historical
and epistemological aspects of simulation. The remainder of this call provides
an overview of the different directions of research that may be usefully
investigated regarding simulation in economics. It then provides a short (non-
exclusive) list of possible themes of investigation and gives some practical
information about the schedule of the special issue.

The dominant view of simulation is that the economics profession is still
reluctant to place simulation on the same footing as other methodological
tools of research, for reasons that have to do with the epistemic qualities of
the outcomes obtained from simulations. This deserves to be discussed on
different grounds. First, there is a question of definition. Second, there is
the historical aspect of the issue. Third, there are the methodological
issues, which leads to discussing the goals of simulation within the various
steps of any economic inquiry.

Dr. Jean Baderschneider
CEO and Founding Board Member
Global Fund to End Modern Slavery

Title: The potential of simulation for disrupting modern slavery systems
According to recent global estimates, over 25 million people are in conditions of modern slavery around the world. Modern slavery, an umbrella term which includes forced labor and forced sexual exploitation, is an economic crime of opportunity that occurs in every country in the world, generating an estimated $150 Billion USD in illegal profits to traffickers. It is a massive system of exploitation driven by both supply of vulnerable populations and demand for cheap products and services.

The Global Fund to End Modern Slavery (GFEMS) is a bold public-private partnership with a mission to make modern slavery economically unprofitable by catalyzing and coordinating a global, coherent strategy. Dr. Baderschneider will discuss how developing this coherent strategy will require innovative approaches to collecting data and to evaluating and disrupting systems driving modern slavery. She will highlight the potential of simulation to be a game-changer in this effort.

ESA-announce The registration deadline for the 2018 Choice Prediction Competition (CPC18) is tomorrow Sat July 30

Posted on 2018/07/04. Filed under: 綜合 |

WE write to remind you the deadline for registration for Choice Prediction Competition 2018 (CPC18) is June 30th. To register click here.

Each unique submission, even by the same authors, requires registration.

Submission deadline is July 24th (but see below)

Here are the details of CPC18 for those who happened to miss them (including important submission information):

We invite you to participate in the 2018 choice prediction competition (“CPC18”) for human decision making. The main goal of this competition is to improve our understanding of the ways by which behavioral decision research can contribute to the derivation of useful predictions of human decision making, above and beyond what is possible using data-driven machine learning tools (if at all possible).

CPC18 distinguishes between two very different prediction tasks: predicting the aggregate population behavior in an unfamiliar choice problem, and predicting the individual behavior in a familiar choice problem. Specifically, CPC18 includes two parallel competition tracks, and you are invited to participate in either one, or better yet, in both. A second goal of the competition is to then understand what type of models are better suited to handle each type of task.

The rules of the competition and further details are given in https://cpc18.wordpress.com. A white paper summarizing the current stage of the competition is provided here.

As in some of the previous choice prediction competitions, the prize for the winners is an invitation to be a co-author of the paper that summarizes the competition.

The competition’s basic idea is as follows. We previously collected a large dataset of human choices between monetary gambles, under risk and under ambiguity, with and without feedback. This dataset includes over 500,000 individual consequential choices. Almost all of this data is publicly available at https://zenodo.org/record/845873#.WeDg9GhSw2x, and can (and probably should) be used to develop and train your predictive models.

In those experiments, each decision maker faced many problems, and the two tracks differ with respect to the exact prediction challenge:

In track “Individual behavior, familiar problems” the task is to predict the individual behavior of a small portion of these decision makers in some of the problems they faced. Therefore, a small portion of the data already collected will be used as the competition data in that track and is thus not available. The goal in this track is to predict, as accurately as possible, the individual behavior reflected in that data.
To submit to this track, you need to (first register until 6/30, and then) send, by 7/24, a file with your predictions. An example for an acceptable submission is here.

In track "Aggregate behavior, unfamiliar problems” the task is to predict the aggregate choice rates in a new experiment with new problems that we recently ran (during May-June 2018; “the competition set”). As in some of the previous choice prediction competitions, the submissions should be computer programs that read the parameters of the choice problems as input, and derive the predicted choice rates as output.
To submit to this track, you need to (first register by 6/30, and then) send, by 7/24, the code of your model. Examples for acceptable submissions are here. Then, on 7/25, we will publish the tasks used in the competition set. Participants are then required to submit a file with their predictions by July 28th.

We hope that you are up for the challenge!

The organizing team,

Ori Plonsky, Reut Apel, Ido Erev, Eyal Ert, and Moshe Tennenholtz

The Bobst Center for Peace and Justice at Princeton University and the Social Science Experimental Laboratory (SSEL) at New York University Abu Dhabi are pleased to invite you to submit a paper/research design to the Winter Experimental Social Sciences Institute (WESSI) Workshops at American University of Beirut (Oct 26-27, 2018) and New York University Abu Dhabi (January 21-23, 2019). These workshops are organized by Rebecca Morton (NYU NYC and AD) and Amaney Jamal (Princeton University). Note that the Abu Dhabi workshop immediately proceeds the Asia-Pacific ESA Meetings at NYUAD so it might be particularly attractive for ESA members who can combine both events.

Each WESSI Workshop aims to give social science PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior Assistant Professors in experimental social science the opportunity to present their research designs and work in progress and receive personal feedback from noted scholars in the field. Each will also enable students to attend presentations by these mentors, and learn from their research experience. Each mentor will present their own research and each student will receive feedback from two mentors. Junior scholars who are planning or in the process of doing research in the Middle East region, broadly defined, or who were participants at previous WESSI workshops are especially encouraged to apply, but we are open to scholars working in other regions and new to WESSI as well. The list of mentors for each workshop can be found below.

The travel (economy class) and accommodation expenses of junior scholars whose proposals are accepted will be covered. Applications are open until July 1, 2018. Interested applicants should submit a detailed write-up of their planned presentation (either a fully thought out and developed experimental research design or an extensive report of research in progress for which they would like to receive feedback) at the following link:

Sign Up for WESSI Workshops 2018-19

If you are a graduate student, please include a letter of support from your dissertation adviser. If your adviser would prefer to send his or her letter directly to us, please have him or her email the letter to ssel with WESSI Workshops 2018-19 as the subject. Applicants will be allowed to apply for just one or both workshops, however, in order to make sure we have balanced participation, those selected will be invited to participate in just one of the workshops and will not be able to choose which workshop they attend. Applicants will be selected and notified by July 15, 2018. For questions or more information, please email ssel.

ESA-announce PhD Scholarships at the KLU Hamburg (Behavioral / Experimental Finance)

Posted on 2018/04/13. Filed under: 綜合 |

The Kuehne Logistics University invites applications for 10 PhD scholarships. While this is an open call (all business disciplines), I would like to particularly encourage students interested in behavioral and experimental research in the topical area of finance to apply.

Below you find the full text of the call:

Kühne Logistics University

10 PhD Scholarships sponsored by the Kühne Foundation
(start date 1 September 2018)

The Kühne Logistics University is a private research university in Hamburg, Germany. Its 21 faculty span a variety of disciplines within management and logistics with an objective to enhance knowledge, education, and outreach within and off the logistics industry and the logistics function. Within its first years of existence, KLU has been able to establish an outstanding research reputation as is apparent is relevant research rankings and in KLU’s faculty publishing in the world’s top journals of their respective disciplines.

Since its foundation in 2010, KLU has been training PhD students to become outstanding and influential academics, with research excellence and a good eye for the industry that KLU studies and serves. As the first graduates start their academic and industry careers, KLU has now obtained the full right to award doctoral degrees and is stepping up its investment in its PhD program.

KLU is hence very happy to announce the availability of 10 competitive full scholarships donated by the Kühne Foundation, for enrollment in the KLU PhD program in Logistics and Management per 1 September 2018. The Kühne Foundation is very happy and proud to donate these scholarships in view of the full recognition that KLU has received from the State of Hamburg (Germany) to grant doctoral degrees.

PhD Program

KLU’s PhD program is a unique program in training academics to be future thought leaders with a thorough understanding of one of the world’s most dynamic sectors. Digitization, new value-adding processes, and a need for increased sustainability along the triple bottom line have globally a major impact on corporations and society in general, and logistics and supply chain management in particular.

The PhD program is a four-year program mainly consisting of independent research under supervision by two academic supervisors of KLU’s outstanding faculty, encompassing a wide scope of social science and business disciplines. Furthermore, some coursework is required, consisting of courses taken at KLU, courses taken at our partner universities and broader networks, and relevant skills training. The course program is tailored to the specific focal research area of the student. Upon successful completion, the student will obtain the (German) degree of Doctor of Management Sciences/Wirtschaftswissenschaften (Dr.rer.pol.) or the (international) degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).


Admission to the program is competitive and is based on the excellence of the applicant and the match in research interest with the university’s resident faculty and match in profile with the university. Candidates with an interest in digital transformation, sustainability, and value creation in supply chains, all in the broadest sense, are particularly encouraged to apply.


To be considered for admission, you must meet the following minimum requirements:

– Completed or about to complete a Master degree from an accredited university with a good international reputation

– English language proficiency at a level that is equivalent to at least IELTS 6.5.

Scholarship and facilities
