The cross-disciplinary Decision-making research group at the University of 
Bristol explores the relationship between theoretical and empirical aspects 
of decision-making using mathematical, computational and experimental 
methods. We are hosting a two-day mini-conference to bring together 
theoreticians and experimentalists.

We welcome abstracts (of no more than 200 words) from psychologists, 
economists, biologists, neuroscientists, philosophers and other decision 
researchers using normative or descriptive approaches to decision-making. 
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
* cognitive/behavioural neuroscience;
* decision theory;
* information theoretical approaches;
* behavioural and experimental investigations;
* computational models of decision-making (including bayesian 
* behavioural economics, evolutionary approaches.

As well as the four keynote speakers who will be presenting their work, 
contributed talks will be given by many (if not all) participants. If you 
wish to contribute, you will be prompted to enter your abstract and select 
your preferred method of presentation (talk/poster) as part of the 
registration process.

The deadline for registrations is Friday 9 November.

A flat fee of £100 is charged for conference attendance, which includes 
lunch and refreshments throughout the two days, as well as a three-course 
dinner at the Avon Gorge Hotel on 17 December. Conference participants are
