10th Triennial

Invitational Choice Symposium

Lake Louise, AB, Canada
May 14 – 17, 2016

Organized by Gerald Häubl and Peter T.L. Popkowski Leszczyc

About the Choice Symposium

The purpose of the Triennial Invitational Choice Symposium is to provide a forum for in-depth interaction among the world’s preeminent scholars (from various scientific disciplines) in the domains of human choice behavior and decision making. These domains are defined broadly. In particular, the Choice Symposium is designed to facilitate discourse that will lead to advances both in our theoretical/substantive understanding of how people make choices and in the methods for studying choice behavior. The Symposium entails a number of parallel workshops on specific, well-defined themes. Each of these workshops is (a) organized by two or three thought leaders on a theme that they propose and (b) attended by a total of 10-12 additional participants who are invited by the workshop organizers.

The inaugural Choice Symposium was held in Banff in 1990. Since then, the conference has been hosted by Duke University, NYU/Columbia, HEC Paris, UC Berkeley, the University of Colorado, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Miami/University of Technology Sydney, and Erasmus University.
