Decision Making for Others 2018
Our meeting on Decision Making for Others took place on 2 and 3 July 2018 at the Nijmegen School of Management in the Netherlands. The final version of the conference booklet together with a schedule and abstracts can be found here (pdf, 783 kB).
Most participants were highly distinguished researchers, leading their respective fields; a number of small travel grants also allowed some early-career researchers working on their first research projects to participate.
The conference consisted of two parts. In the first part, individual presentations and on-screen poster presentations of cutting edge projects were held in our new collaboration rooms to bring all participants on the same page. In the second part, the participants organized their thoughts on the topic in a computer-aided brainstorm session guided by Professor Etiënne Rouwette from the NSM’s methods group–the first time he applied this method to a research question in such an environment. During the farewell, the participants testified a very focussed and fruitful research environment to discuss a particular research strand rather than presenting at broadly organized conferences. Eventually, sharing experiences across disciplines allowed all participants to change perspective, in line with the strategic plan of Radboud University.
We would like to thank all participants, our sponsors and our assistants for making our conference a nice event.
The folder with presentations can be found here (zip, 31 MB). Only participants have access to this folder.
