The School of Economics at the University of East Anglia and the Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science (CBESS) will be holding an online workshop on behavioral game theory on July 15 - 16.  The purpose of this workshop is to present current experimental and behavioral research related to the topic of game theory.  We are particularly interested in papers that investigate behavioral dynamics in games, but all papers that lie at the intersection of game theory, behavioral economics, and experimental economics will be considered.  


We are pleased to announce this year’s plenary speakers:

Cristina BicchieriUniversity of Pennsylvania

Yan ChenUniversity of Michigan

Jörgen WeibullStockholm School of Economics


Like many events, this year’s conference will be held online.

The general format will be a small number of relatively long paper presentations. To facilitate feedback and interaction, papers that are accepted will also be assigned a discussant.  


If you would like to present a paper, you can submit an extended abstract or paper here.

The submission deadline is March 26th, and we will let you know if your paper has been accepted for presentation by April 19th

You are invited to attend the conference even if you are not presenting a paper.


We will announce registration information when the conference program is released. There will not be a fee for attending.

Graduate students may also be interested in UEA's PhD summer school course in behavioral game theory that immediately precedes the workshop (July 12-14).  The course is designed to provide a short introduction to experimental research related to behavioral game theory.  More information can be found at the following link: In the past, many students have attended the course and then attended the workshop.


We are excited by this workshop and hope you will be attending!
