Winter School Announcement

posted 29 Mar 2011, 18:39 by Sydney Winter School   [ updated 18 May 2011, 21:36 ]

The School of Economics at The University of Sydney is pleased to announce a five-day winter school on advanced topics in experimental economics.

Two leading international experimental economists will participate in the winter school as teaching faculty. They are Professor Simon Gächter (University of Nottingham) and Professor Graham Loomes (University of Warwick).

The winter school will comprise four days of intensive coursework and laboratory sessions. On a fifth day, there will be a research symposium in which participants will have the opportunity to present results of their own research. The symposium will also include a poster session, in which participants will be able to present more preliminary work, including work at a design stage.

The winter school is intended primarily for PhD students from the Australasian region, however applications from early-career postdoctoral researchers and applicants from other parts of the world will also be considered should places be available. It is expected that all participants will either already be using experimental economics methods in their research, or intending to apply these methods to investigate aspects of their current research interests.

The deadline for applications has been extended to 5 pm, 3 June 2011 (Sydney time). To be considered for a place in the winter school, applicants must BOTH a) complete the application form online at the winter school homepage, and b) email a copy of their current CV to sydneywinterschool (at) gmail (dot) com.

Successful applicants will be notified of their acceptance not later than 10 June 2011. It is expected that those who are accepted will participate in the entire winter school – it is not possible to apply to attend only a part of it.

There will be no registration fee for the winter school. However the organisers regret that we are unable to provide any financial support for participants’ travel to or accommodation in Sydney.
