10th Interdisciplinary Symposium on Decision Neuroscience

July 28-29, 2023

Fox School of Business

Temple University

Philadelphia, PA

Temple University’s Fox School of Business will host the 10th Interdisciplinary Symposium on Decision Neuroscience in Philadelphia, PA.


This symposium is unique in that it brings together a range of constituencies involved in the use of neuroscience techniques to understand consumer decision making – world renowned academics, neuroscience research companies, marketing research executives and industry leaders. It offers an opportunity to learn, present and discuss the latest breakthroughs on using neuroscientific and physiological measures to inform decision making in individuals, groups, societies, organizations, and markets. ISDN has previously been hosted at a range of institutions, including Stanford, MIT, Duke University, and University of Michigan and has been hosted virtually during the past two years at Temple University and University of Houston. This year’s conference will occur at the end of the Neuroeconomics Summer School hosted by the University of Pennsylvania. For more information about ISDN, please visit our website or contact us at .


Deadline for Oral presentations: March 31, 2023 (11:59 p.m. EST). Late-breaking poster presentations will be accepted for review until June 30, 2023 (11:59 p.m. EST).

The organizing committee will select papers for presentation at the symposium based on extended abstracts (one page, single spaced). The abstract should state the study’s objectives, briefly describe the methods, summarize the results, and state the conclusions. The body of the abstract should be no longer than 2,300 characters, including punctuation (not spaces). All abstracts should be emailed to  by 11:59 pm EST on March 31, 2023. Decisions about the abstracts will be communicated to the authors by April 30, 2023. Selected papers would ideally not be published prior to the symposium.

Selections will be based on quality, relevance to decision neuroscience, and contribution to breadth of topics and interdisciplinary approaches and relevance for industry. (Note that all abstracts do not necessarily require neuroscience data but should have the potential to encourage discussions about a possible role for neuroscience.) We consider not just the individual merits of the papers, but how they complement other submissions from scholars in different fields to form a cohesive session. The organizers will invite authors of the abstracts not selected for talks to present their work as posters. Preference will also be given to new speakers.

More details about the conference, registration, invited speakers, travel awards and accommodations will be updated regularly on our website. .
