2014 Conference

Our annual conference, Neuroeconomics: Decision Making and the Brain, aims to promote interdisciplinary collaborations and discussions on topics lying at the intersection of the brain and decision sciences in the hopes of advancing both theory and research in decision making. To this end, we welcome involvement by all researchers interested in these and related topics, including reward, learning, emotion, and social behavior to name but a few. Our meeting embraces a wide breadth of research; please feel free to download abstracts and other material from our previous conferences below.

Through this annual meeting, the Society for Neuroeconomics promotes global interdisciplinary discussion on topics lying at the intersection of the brain and decision sciences in hopes of advancing both theory and research. The meeting is attended by scholars of all levels from all areas of neuroeconomic research including the fields of economics, psychology, and neural science, as well as by leaders in fields such as finance and medicine. The meeting's format, consisting of general talk sessions, poster sessions, organized receptions and group meals, provides ample opportunities for networking and off-line discussions. Further networking opportunities are provided by other events like our all-attendee banquet. 

This year we continue to enhance our scientific content with the 5th Annual Kavli Foundation Plenary Lecture, given by Colin Camerer, PhD, Robert Kirby Professor of Behavioral Finance and Economics at the California Institute of Technology and a 2013 MacArthur Fellow*. We will begin the conference with four Kavli Foundation workshop tutorials on current advances in neuroeconomics, presented by Matthew Botvinick, PhDAssociate Professor, Department of Psychology and Princeton Neuroscience Institute, Princeton UniversityRussell Poldrack, PhD, Director of the Imaging Research Center and Professor of Psychology and Neurobiology, The University of Texas at AustinMichael Woodford, PhD, John Bates Clark Professor of Political Economy, Columbia University, and Elke Weber, PhD, Jerome A. Chazen Professor of International Business and Professor of Psychology, Columbia University.

Your registration includes admission to all sessions, a printed abstract book, breakfast, lunch, and breaks on all three conference days and a banquet dinner on Saturday evening.

Consumer Neuroscience Satellite Symposium, September 25th 2014

Please register for the event separately here

The purpose of this satellite symposium is to take stock of the current knowledge at the intersection of consumer research and neuroscience, to provide ideas for future research, and to allow interested researchers to meet and discuss research ideas. It is a half-day event, featuring several invited talks by top researchers in the area, followed by a panel of experts in marketing, psychology, and neuroscience.

Confirmed and requested invited speakers:

  • Colin Camerer, California Institute of Technology, USA
  • Scott Huettel, Duke University, USA
  • Wes Hutchinson, The Wharton School, USA
  • Eric Johnson, Columbia University, USA
  • Barbara Kahn, The Wharton School, USA
  • Brian Knutson, Stanford University, USA
  • Bob Meyer, The Wharton School, USA
  • Michel Pham, Columbia University, USA
  • Bernd Weber, University of Bonn, Germany

We will also accept submissions for 3 talks and posters. Deadline for submission is July 15 2014

Guidelines are as follows:

  • Abstracts should describe novel theoretical, computational or empirical results.
  • The abstract should (ideally, these sections will be indicated explicitly)

                   1. state the study's objective,

                   2. briefly describe the methods used,

                   3. summarize the results obtained, and

                   4. state the conclusions.


  • Abstracts should emphasize the significance of results to consumer behavior and general principles rather than describe ordinary methods and procedures.
  • The body of your abstract should be no more than 2,300 characters, including punctuation (not spaces).
  • Abstracts must include title, authors, presenting author, institutions, contact information for corresponding author, and abstract text.
