The cross-disciplinary Decision-making research group at the University of

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

wish to contribute, you will be prompted to enter your abstract and select
your preferred method of presentation (talk/poster) as part of the
