2015 AAEA & WAEA Joint Annual Meeting Post-Conference Workshop

Workshop Stipends for Graduate Students and Young Professionals
Applying Behavioral and Experimental Economics to Food and Agri-Environmental Issues
July 29, 2015, 9 AM to 4 PM, Marriott Marquis, San Francisco, CA

This workshop brings together world-renowned experts and new researchers to engage in lively presentations and discussions of how behavioral and experimental economics can explain the impact of economic behavior on food choice and landowner participation in agri-environmental programs.

We will provide selected graduate students and young professionals with scholarships that cover the registration fee and provide a stipend to cover the accommodation cost.

To apply for the workshop stipends, please submit one paragraph (no more than 200 words) explaining why you should be considered for the waiver to Carola Grebitus (carola.grebitus@asu.edu). We will give priority to those who are applying to participate in the mini-mentor meeting.

Five reasons why graduate students and young professionals should attend this workshop:
1) Insightful presentations: Our workshop will host presentations by Michele Belot, University of Edinburgh; Paul Ferraro, Johns Hopkins University; Andrew Hanks, The Ohio State University; David Just, Cornell University; and Collin Payne, New Mexico State University.
2) Mini-mentor meeting: Discuss your research ideas in an informal setting at lunch with experienced researchers. We will develop small groups based on commonalities in research areas and/or research methodologies (i.e., lab experiments, field experiments, randomized controlled trials). Mentors with experience in the respective fields will provide constructive criticism regarding the experimental designs to these small groups.
3) Networking: Interact with the other participants to exchange ideas, and get feedback.
4) Certificate: You will obtain a certificate of completion at the end of the workshop.
5) Future presentation: We will choose four promising research designs by graduate students/young professionals to be featured in a FSN track session at the 2016 AAEA meetings.

To apply:
Submit an extended abstract (2 pages max; Times New Roman 12pt, 1.5 line spacing) including:
Three key words that describe your research
Two or three research questions you hope to answer with the research
A description of your recruitment strategy
Basic experimental instructions (if available and applicable)

Please send your 2-page abstract with the subject line “CfP AAEA Post-Conference Workshop” to Carola.Grebitus@asu.edu. Accepted submissions will be notified by May 30, 2015.

For participation in the Mini-Mentor meetings, please submit by May 15, 2015

The workshop is presented by Carola Grebitus, Arizona State University and Christiane Schroeter, California Polytechnic State University- San Luis Obispo (co-organizers); Brenna Ellison, University of Illinois; Jayson Lusk, Oklahoma State University; Bidisha Mandal, Washington State University; and Kent Messer, CBEAR - University of Delaware (organizing committee).
