The 2009 conference will take place at the Institute of Bankers in Ireland (IFSC, Dublin) on Friday November 6th 2009. The Institute of Bankers in Ireland is located at 1 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1.

The purpose of this conference is to provide a forum for the discussion of work at the interface of economics, psychology and cognate disciplines such as neuroscience.
