International Meeting on Experimental and Behavioral Social Sciences
The Nuffield Centre for Experimental Social Sciences of the University of Oxford (CESS) is pleased to announce the Third International Meeting on Experimental and Behavioral Social Sciences (IMEBESS) at Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli (LUISS) on 14-16 April 2016. The conference is locally organised by three professors at LUISS, Giovanni Ponti, Lorenzo De Sio, and Giacomo Sillari in collaboration with Jordi Brandts (Institut d’Anàlisi Econòmica (CSIC) and Barcelona GSE), Raymond Duch (Nuffield College Oxford University), Enrique Fatás (University of East Anglia), and Diego Gambetta (European University Institute).

IMEBESS has started as a succession of the International Meeting series on Experimental and Behavioral Economics (IMEBE), and had an inaugural meeting at Nuffield College, University of Oxford in April 2014, followed by the second meeting held at the Institute for Advanced Study at Toulouse. IMEBESS intends to bring together researchers in all areas of the social sciences who are interested in experimental methods. We believe that behavioural economics is increasingly informed by a very diverse range of research traditions. Hence, we are particularly interested in the participation of all the diverse social science disciplines with an interest in experimental and behavioural research. The program consists of a number of invited and contributed talks. In the past years, the meeting has attracted more than a hundred contributed talks, and we believe that IMEBESS 2016 will be another exciting event for all scholars and practitioners interested in experimental and behavioural research.

The invited speakers are:

  • Nicholas Chater (University of Warwick)
  • Tore Ellingsen (Stockholm School of Economics)
  • Dominik Hangartner (London School of Economics)
  • Stuart West (University of Oxford)

Proposals for contributed papers should be sent, in the form of an extended abstract or a full paper, to the organizers through the registration form at the IMEBESS-website.

Both theoretical and empirical papers on the topics in all areas of the social sciences, such as experimental and behavioural economics, sociology, political science, psychology are encouraged. The deadline for submitting papers has been extended to 07 February 2016. Authors will receive notification of acceptance on 29 February 2016.
