The CEAR/MRIC Behavioral Insurance Workshop invites researchers to submit papers that offer new experimental, econometric or theoretical insights into human behavior in the insurance context. Submissions should have an insurance and/or decision under risk and uncertainty background and establish a link to non-traditional demand or supply theories.

Behavioral economics and behavioral finance typically incorporate cognitive and social factors in modeling economic decisions. These include decisions made by the buyers and sellers of insurance-related products. The field of behavioral insurance attempts to explain many of the discrepancies between theories and observations within insurance markets.

The workshop will be hosted by the Munich Risk and Insurance Center (MRIC) at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich, Germany, and organized by Andreas Richter and Jörg Schiller. It will be held in cooperation with the Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) at Georgia State University. The preliminary schedule has Professors Benjamin Handel (University of California, Berkeley), Justin Sydnor (University of Wisconsin-Madison) and Stefan Trautmann (Heidelberg University) giving plenary talks.
