The 6th Workshop in Behavioral and Experimental Health Economics is hosted by the Department of Health Management and Health Economics, University of Oslo. The workshop aims at bringing together researchers who apply behavioral economics and experimental methods to topics in health economics, policy, and management, in order to present and discuss their papers and ideas. We welcome contributions on all health topics using all experimental methods, including eld, lab, and online experiments. The workshop will include a Special CEAR Session on the topic of risk preferences in health, organized by Professor Glenn Harrison (Georgia State University). For each paper, we allocate 60 minutes to provide speakers with the opportunity for an in-depth presentation of their research.
We are pleased to announce that the keynote address will be given by Professor Anna Dreber Almenberg (www.hhs.se/en/person/?personId=12741033). Anna currently holds the Johan Björkman Chair in Economics at Stockholm School of Economics, and is also affiliated with the University of Innsbruck. Her research is published in top scientific journals such as Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and American Economic Review.
At the deadline for submissions, 55 submissions were received. The scientific committee has reviewed all submissions and selected 14 to be presented at the workshop.
Registration for this event is now closed.
Participants who are giving oral presentations at the workshop do not need to register at the workshop. Presenters will be contacted by the organizers regarding the details of accommodation etc. For participants giving an oral presentation, the participation fee is waived.
