On June 2–3, 2017, Stanford University together with Harvard Business School, Michigan, MIT and Temple will host the 7th Annual Interdisciplinary Symposium on Decision Neuroscience (ISDN) at Stanford, CA.


This symposium is unique in that it brings together a range of constituencies involved in the use of neuroscience techniques to understand decision making — world-renowned academics, neuroscience research companies, marketing research executives, and industry leaders. It offers two days to mingle and present the latest breakthroughs on using neuro and physiological measures to inform decision making in individuals, groups, society, organizations, and markets.

Deadline: March 03, 2017 (5pm PST)

The organizing committee will select papers for presentation at the symposium based on extended abstracts. Please use the template provided attached and at the conference’s website under Announcements. The abstract should state the study’s objectives, briefly describe the methods, summarize the results obtained, and state the conclusions. The body of the abstract should be no longer than 2400 characters, including punctuation (not spaces). All abstracts should be emailed to  by 5 pm PST on March 3, 2017.

Selections will be based on quality, relevance to decision neuroscience, and contribution to breadth of topics and interdisciplinary approaches. (Note that all abstracts do not necessarily require neuroscience data, but should have the potential to encourage discussions about a possible role for neuroscience.) Selected papers would ideally not be published prior to the symposium.
