On May 15-16, 2015, MIT will host the 5th Annual Interdisciplinary Symposium on Decision Neuroscience (ISDN)
in Cambridge, MA.
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 two days to mingle and present the latest breakthroughs
on using neuro and physiological measures to understand decision making behavior in business contexts and more
Deadline: Mar 2, 2015 (5pm 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
obtained and state the conclusions. The body of the abstract should be no longer than 2300 characters, including
punctuation (not spaces). All abstracts should be emailed to by 5 pm EST on Mar 2, 2015. Deci-
sions about the abstracts will be communicated to the authors by Mar 23, 2015. Selected papers would ideally not be
published prior to the symposium.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. (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.
Limited travel awards will be available to offset expenses for students and junior faculty. More details about the
conference, registration, travel awards and accommodations can be found at:
