12 December 2012: Workshop on Experimental Research; 31 May - 1 June 2013; Sponsored by the ESSEXlab
Presentations will last about an hour, and may be on any topic related to presenters’ current research. In addition to individual presentations, the workshop will feature a round table on the book Experimental Economics: Rethinking The Rules (Bardsley, Cubitt, Loomes, Moffatt, Starmer and Sugden) by authors and discussants. There will also be the chance to inspect the new, state-of-the-art laboratory hosted in the Social Science building at ISER.
The workshop will take place on Friday 31 May and Saturday 1 June 2013.
ISER conference room, University of Essex.
Hotel accommodation will be provided.
Essex University is an hour by train from London Liverpool Street, or an hour by bus from Stansted Airport.

We will pay for economy class flights (or for economy class equivalent contributions to a business class flight) and transport to/from airports for all speakers.
ESSEXLab, the Essex Social Science Experimental Laboratory, is a new laboratory located within the University’s Institute for Social and Economic Research, and opening in March 2013. It contains 32 workstations, separated by partitions to ensure participants’ privacy and anonymity and networked so as to allow the running of interactive experiments. The experimenter can use a separate office with server and printer. The laboratory can be divided into two separate soundproofed areas to allow groups of participants interact naturally. Experiment instructions can be displayed on overhead screens. A computerized database of subjects allows researchers to select participants based on a wide range of demographic and other characteristics. A full-time lab manager will support the design and run experiments, and seedcorn funding is available for experimenters to run pilots and initiate new projects.
