Call for papers

We invite research papers and posters as well as full sessions (4 presentations) for possible inclusion in the 2013 International Joint Conference of the Society for the Advancement of Behavioral Economics (SABE), the International Association for Research in Economic Psychology (IAREP), and the International Confederation for the Advancement of Behavioral Economics and Economic Psychology (ICABEEP). These meetings bring together hundreds of scholars from around the world, providing a platform for interdisciplinary discussions and initiate interdisciplinary collaborations. This year, we are bringing economics and psychology together in the wake of the financial crisis. One of the many lessons from the experience of the recent financial crisis is the renewed attention to the importance of the role of socio-economic norms, regulatory behavior, and cognitive processes that shape financial and economic decisions. Theoretical, empirical, and experimental studies that shed light on human behavior (broadly defined) facilitates our understanding of the why and how of a societal and global happening such as the financial crisis. Some possible topics are as follows:

  • Behavioral economics/finance
  • Bounded Rationality
  • Cognitive, social, and personality psychology
  • Consumer Psychology
  • Current economic trends/Financial crisis
  • Fairness, inequality aversion
  • Gender and economic issues
  • Happiness
  • Heuristics
  • History of economic thought
  • Human capital
  • Individual decision making
  • Intuition and decision making
  • Keynesian economics, recession/depression
  • Money management in the household
  • Psychological and behavioral effects of the economic downturn
  • Social norms
  • Stress and coping

Announcing this list of topics does not imply exclusion of other areas of inquiry. We welcome all your original scholarly work in Economics, Psychology, Sociology, all fields of Business, and beyond, especially those with a focus on behavioral and interdisciplinary approach to the subject matter.

Free Workshops

“Getting Published” Workshop

So you’ve finally finished your draft and have gotten good feedback – now what? Join a panel of editors from leading journals and publishing houses to learn what the journal reviewers and book publishers are looking for. What characteristics will get an article past the editor’s desk? What do you do when you get the reviews back? All conference participants are welcome, though we would especially encourage graduate students and young faculty to attend. There is no additional fee, but seating is limited and available via registration on a first-come, first-served basis. (Contact: Elizabeth Searing, esearing1@gsu.edu)
