21-22 March 2014, Workshop "Respecting Context-dependent preferences", Umea, Sweden

Date: 21-22 March 2014
Location: Umea, Sweden

Behavioral science strongly indicates that which alternative we prefer depends on circumstances other than the properties of the alternatives themselves. For example, we are influenced by how alternatives are described, even when different descriptions contain the same information.

Issues raised by this context-dependence of preferences will be discussed in a two-day workshop by the following speakers: Richard Arneson (UC San Diego), Luc Bovens (London School of Economics), Sarah Conly (Bowdoin/Chicago), Jason Hanna (Northern Illinois), Sven Ove Hansson (KTH, Stockholm), Kalle Grill (Umeå), Danny Scoccia (New Mexico State), Robert Sugden (East Anglia) and Torbjörn Tännsjö (Stockholm).

Starts 10.00 Friday 21st (coffee 9.30). Ends 18.00 Saturday 22d. (There are flights from Stockholm Friday morning, returns Sunday morning). Registration required. No fee, free coffee. Dinner Friday, possibly subsidised.
