Workshop Leaders: Dr Ulrik Beierholm, Professor Brit Grosskopf, Professor Rajiv Sarin and Professor Andrew Howes

Decision making is a topic of utmost importance to a number of disciplines, including economics, psychology, neuroscience, computer science and business. The cross disciplinary study of this area is currently a topic with great interest from journals and funding agencies as evidenced by the number of high profile papers being published in recent years (for a list of references see e.g. NeuroEconomics: Decision making and the brain, Academic Press Inc., 2008).

UoB has recruited new faculty members, across different colleges, all with interests in how humans perform choices when faced with uncertainty. As new faculty members it would be in the interest of all to find collaborators across the university, thus this workshop has potential to build long lasting collaborations. Furthermore we specifically wish to invite external speakers that have experience in bridging different disciplines and who can thus help establish collaborations across disciplines within the university and externally.
