2nd Winter Workshop: Behavioral and Experimental Economics of Food Consumption

Call for Papers

We welcome submissions for the Second Winter Workshop on the Behavioral and Experimental Economics of Food Consumption. The aim of the workshop is to unite researchers to integrate new insights from behavioral economics into the toolkit used to address food consumption issues. The focus is on heuristics and choice processes in food decision making.

The intensive two and a half day workshop will be organized with no parallel sessions, with plenty of time to present and discuss, and hosted in Aussois, a snowy family-size ski resort in the French Alps. We believe that scientific leaps need the work of several minds together, in a relaxed and focused atmosphere.

The workshop welcomes two keynote talks of leading researchers in the area. Rodolfo M. Nayga, Jr. is an eminent professor in food economics focusing on consumer demand, food policy and health issues. Ralph Hertwig is a pioneer in the psychology of human judgement and decision-making with important interdisciplinary research on cognitive search and adaptive heuristics.

Keynote speakers: Rodolfo M. Nayga, Jr., University of Arkansas, and Ralph Hertwig, Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Berlin
