A good deadline for economic and psychology people

Call for Papers

7-11 JULY 2009

Conference Web Site:

Halifax , Nova Scotia , Canada

International Association for Research in Economic Psychology (IAREP)

Society for the Advancement of Behavioral Economics (SABE)

Conference Theme: “Behavioural Economics, Economic Psychology: Theory
and Policy”

Dear Colleagues,

Behavioral economics and economic psychology have made significant advances over the past two decades impacting on economic theory and public policy. These realms of research are influenced by research in economics, psychology, sociology, biology, neuroscience, institutions as well as being informed by traditional empirical studies and evidence derived from experimental economics and surveys, interviews, and simulations. Thus, behavioral economics and economic psychology are enriched by a knowledge base that spans the disciplinary divide.

The IAREP-SABE Conference aims at providing voice to economists, psychologists and other academics to rigorously discuss and debate their latest research in a welcoming scholarly environment. We welcome paper submissions as well as session submissions, be they of a theoretical or empirical bent, on all relevant topics relating to behavioral economics and economic psychology.

We welcome your online submissions.

The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2009. You will be notified by April 30, 2009, whether or not your submission has been accepted for presentation.

All sessions will take place at Saint Mary's University.
