Revisit: Boulder Financial Decision Making


Boulder Summer Conference on Consumer Financial Decision Making, Boulder, CO; Deadline 12 Dec

Abstract Submission Deadline December 12, 2015 for Boulder Summer Conference on Consumer Financial Decision Making: May 22nd – 24th, 2016, St. Julien Hotel, Boulder, Colorado.

Conference Overview

The Boulder Summer Conference in Consumer Financial Decision Making, now in its 7th year, is the world’s foremost interdisciplinary conference for discussion of research on consumer financial decision-making. Our goal is to stimulate cross-disciplinary conversation and improve basic and applied research in the emerging area of consumer financial decision-making. This research can inform our understanding of how consumers actually make such decisions and how consumers can be helped to make better decisions by innovations in public policy, business, and consumer education. Please see the 2015 program on the conference website to see abstracts of research by scholars in economics, psychology, sociology, behavioral finance, consumer research, decision sciences, behavioral economics, and law. Our format allows a very high level of opportunity for conversation and interaction around the ideas presented.

and click on the Submit Paper Abstract link:

The conference co-chairs will select papers for presentation at the conference based on extended abstracts. Selected papers must not be published prior to the conference, but those researchers presenting their work at the conference must commit to have a paper that is complete and available for review by discussants one month prior to the conference. Selections will be based on quality, relevance to consumers’ financial decision-making, and contribution to breadth of topics and disciplinary approaches. We consider not just the individual merits of the papers, but how they pair with another submission from a scholar in a different field. The organizers will invite authors of the best papers not selected for presentation at a plenary session to present their work at the Sunday evening poster session.
