Prague Conference on Behavioral Sciences 2023

Oct 12, 2023


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, meaning you can attend it face-to-face or online.

The PCBS has run since 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), Gerd Gigerenzer (2019), and Urs Fischbacher (2022). The conference ran online in the covid years (20-21), and the prize was not awarded.

Catherine Eckel is the 2023 keynote speaker and Allais Memorial Prize in Behavioral Sciences laureate.
