Dear all,

We are delighted to announce that the 2017 Summer Institute on Bounded Rationality will take place on June 06–14th, 2017, at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, Germany.

The Summer Institute brings together talented young researchers and renowned scientists from around the globe and aims to spark a dialogue on human decision making.

It offers a forum for young scholars from various disciplines to share their approaches, discuss their research, and be inspired.

The program will cover the fundamentals, methodology, and recent findings on bounded rationality. This year’s Summer Institute focuses on how and why simple models of bounded rationality make accurate predictions in an uncertain world.

On behalf of the directors of the Summer Institute, Gerd Gigerenzer and Ralph Hertwig, we invite young decision-making scholars from all fields to apply. Participation will be free, accommodation will be provided, and travel expenses will be partly reimbursed.

Applications are open until March 12, 2015.
