ICAP 2014 Paris
Posted by Mark Egan
The International Congress of Applied Psychology starts today in Paris, lasting until Sunday. The keynote speaker is Ernst Fehr, author of some of the most cited papers in behavioural economics over the last 20 years. He will speak on the topic of "How does neuroeconomics help us understand the human mind?". Several members of the Behavioural Science Centre are presenting at the conference; Alex Wood, Christopher Boyce, Michael Daly, Marie Briguglio, Leonhard Lades and myself. The schedule for our talks is listed below. The full (gargantuan) schedule is available to download here.
I'll be attending for the full 6 days and will be intermittently tweeting about the conference, in case that's something you want to keep an eye on. If any blog readers are attending the conference feel free to tweet or email me and say hello, it's always nice to meet fellow behavioural science nerds in the flesh.
