TIBER (Tilburg Institute for Behavioral Economics Research) is happy to announce the 8th Tiber Symposium on Psychology and Economics, to be held on Friday September 4, 2009.

The symposium aims to bring together Economists, Psychologists, Marketing researchers and others who work on Behavioral Decision Making, either in individual or interdependent settings. The symposium will be held at Tilburg University and consists of two keynotes and a number of parallel sessions with presentations of about 20-30 minutes (see Last Years Program).

The two keynote speakers for 2009 are Alan Sanfey (University of Arizona) and Steffen Huck (University College London).

The goal of this series of symposia is to establish contact and discussion between researchers of the different fields. We look for empirical contributions from the diverse fields, such as Individual Decision Making, Consumer Behavior, Bargaining, Social Dilemmas, Experimental Games, Emotions, Fairness and Justice, Rational Choice and related subjects.

Researchers, students, and scholars interested in the topic are kindly invited to join these meetings. Registration starts at Wednesday April 15th and closes at Friday August 14th.
