The Interdisciplinary Center IDC Herzliya, Israel, will host an international academic conference on Behavioral Decision Making, May 30 to June 1st, 2011.

The conference will be held on IDC Herzliya campus, which is located near Tel Aviv.
Decision Making is a multidisciplinary field that draws on cognitive and social psychology, economics, and various other disciplines, in order to understand, describe; and predict how individuals and groups construct judgments and form decisions. The goal of the conference is to bring together insights and recent findings from a variety of perspectives which will reflect the interdisciplinary richness of this rapidly developing field. We hope to provide a forum for the introduction and the evaluation of current themes in the field. The submission of theoretical and methodological papers on behavioral decision making in naturalistic as well as applied settings, is encouraged.

Suggested topics:
• The role of emotional, motivational, and cognitive factors in the judgment and decision making processes.
• Neuroeconomics.
• Heuristics, Biases in decision making, and de-biasing techniques.
• Decision processes in real life contexts and Decision quality analysis
• Economic, psychological, educational, and public policy perspectives 
• Decision processes in real life settings.
• Decision Making and Complexity Science
• Group Decision Making
