  • 21 April 2015, ABC Symposium on Decision Making

    Location: Brakke Grond, Nes 45, Amsterdam

    Researchers from various UvA departments share a deep interest in the study of decision making and decision support. Joining forces would enable researchers with backgrounds in, e.g., Psychology, Economics, Biology, Mathematics, Logic, Artificial Intelligence, and Computer Science to capitalize on their complementary expertise. This, in turn, will allow the UvA to widen the interdisciplinary nature, scope, and significance of ongoing research in the decision sciences, and to educate a new generation of experts in this field. The Symposium on Decision Making will bring together UvA staff members and students from various departments and Master's programmes to discuss central questions, share perspectives, and identify common ground as well as important focus topics for potential research and education initiatives, in an interactive forum.

    The programme will consist of a keynote lecture by Paul Glimcher (NYU) on neuroeconomics and three panel discussions on different questions related to decision making and decision support.
