Visiting Graduate Student Workshop in Experimental Economics

July 15 - July 20, 2007
Arlington, Virginia

This summer IFREE will sponsor its 13th Visiting Graduate Student Workshop in Experimental Economics at George Mason University. The purpose is to provide an introduction to laboratory methods in economics for PhD students.  A reception will be held the evening of  Sunday, July 15, for the attendees and faculty. The workshop will consist of  9 sessions, from Monday, July 16 through Friday, July 20. The workshop will conclude at noon on Friday, July 20.  

The theme of the workshop in Constructivist and Ecological Rationality in Personal and Impersonal Exchange.  In each regular session the group will participate in an experiment for monetary rewards, followed by a presentation from one of the workshop faculty on results that are related to the experiment.  Participants will have the opportunity each to present their research in progress or a research proposals and interact with the faculty throughout the week.

The workshop is free to all participants, but students must provide their own transportation to and from the workshop.  Local housing arrangements are covered by a generous grant from IFREE for the nights of July 15-20. Each day eligible students will participate in an experiment for cash followed by a presentation from one of the workshop faculty.  Thus, as part of their learning experience, participants must earn money to help recover their travel expenses. All international participants must receive approval from George Mason University's international student office in order to receive payments from the experiments.

All applications received by March 15, 2007 will be considered. Your letter of recommendation should be post marked or faxed by March 15, 2007.
