Prague Conference on Behavioral Sciences 2022

May 20, 2022


Prague Conference on Behavioral Sciences accepts abstracts on experimental research of human decision-making, mainly in economics and psychology. However, abstracts from other behavioral sciences are also welcomed. The conference runs in a hybrid form which means that you can attend it either face-to-face or online.

The PCBS runs from 2017 when we also first awarded (in cooperation with Fondation Maurice Allais) the Allais Memorial Prize in Behavioral Sciences for a contribution to the field of behavioral science. The laureates were Bart J. Wilson (2017), Vernon L. Smith (2018), and Gerd Gigerenzer (2019). In the covid years (20-21), the conference ran online, and the prize was not awarded.
