2012 Graduate Student Workshop in Experimental Economics


January 8-12, 2012
The 17th Annual Visiting Graduate Student Workshop in Experimental Economics offered knowledge and experience opportunities for students as beginners as well as those practiced in running experiments. After an evening reception held at the Double Tree Hotel in Anaheim/Orange County, the opening day began early with a shuttle ride to the Economic Science Institute at Chapman Institute. Lectures and group discussion were interlaced with experiments on topic throughout the week. Off-workshop time during breakfast, lunch, dinner and down-time activities provided students ample opportunity to learn more about one another’s work and to network.

The main workshop topics/experiments and speakers were:
