Call for papers:Early-career Behavioral Economics Conference Bergen, 20-21 June 2018

On June 20-21, 2018, the Early-Career Behavioral Economics (ECBE) Conference will take place in Bergen, Norway. 

Following the success of the ECBE Conferences in 2015, 2016 and 2017,  the 4th Early-Career Behavioral Economics Conference will take place in Bergen on 20-21 of June, 2018. The conference will be hosted and sponsored by the new Centre of Excellence FAIR - The Choice Lab at NHH Norwegian School of Economics. 

Objective

The goal of this conference is to provide a platform for researchers who are at an early stage of their academic career to present their research and receive feedback from their peers. The conference seeks to promote the development of a community of early-career behavioral economics researchers. Bertil Tungodden (NHH) and Alexander Cappelen (NHH) will be keynote speakers. While we invite submissions on all topics within the field of behavioral economics, for this year's conference, we especially encourage researchers to submit papers using behavioral insights covering topics related to fairness, inequality, and rationality. 

Eligibility

Any early-career behavioral economist is invited to apply. This includes graduate students, Post-Doctoral researchers, and Assistant Professors who received their Ph.D. after Spring 2013. We will select 20 applicants to present papers, and 20 additional applicants to serve as discussants. 

Costs

There is no conference fee. Conference meals will be covered for invited participants. In cases where financial assistance is not available from a researcher’s university, hotel and economy class travel expenses will be reimbursed for presenters and discussants (up to $1400 for travel from North America and up to $400 for travel from Europe except Bergen).
