The Prague Conference on Behavioral Sciences returns after two years of a covid-related break. We also return to the tradition of awarding the Allais Memorial Prize in Behavioral Sciences to scholars who contributed significantly to the field of experimental economics, behavioral economics, and other behavioral sciences.
We are happy to announce that the 2022 laureate of the prize will be professor Urs Fischbacher from the University of Konstanz, Germany.
Professor Fischbacher is the father of z-Tree, a widely used software package for developing and carrying out economic experiments. Being one of the most cited economists, his experimental research covers topics mainly connected to social preferences (fairness, reciprocity, or cheating). He is also one of the main contributors to the theory behind the experimental games, such as ultimatum and dictator games, public goods games, and the prisoner's dilemma. He co-authored many papers with Ernst Fehr, Simon Gächter, or Armin Falk.
The award will be presented during the Prague Conference on Behavioral Sciences on May 20, 2022.
We also thank the Fondation Maurice Allais and its director, madame Christine Allais who kindly endorsed prof. Fischbacher as the award laureate.
