The Experimental Social Science Laboratory (X-lab) and the Center for
Effective Global Action (CEGA) at UC Berkeley, and The Choice Lab at NHH Norwegian School of Economics organized the 2014 Symposium on Economic Experiments in Developing Countries (SEEDEC) December 10-11 at the Norwegian School of Economics, Bergen, Norway.
The aim of the conference is to bring together the community of scholars who employ laboratory experimental economics methods for research in developing countries. Keynote speakers are Oriana Bandiera (London School of Economics) and Gary Charness (University of California, Santa Barbara). The conference will consist of plenary, parallel, and poster sessions. If you plan to attend, please register here.
Submissions are invited for papers that reflect SEEDEC’s broad research agenda which includes studies involving lab experiments in the field (in contrast to focusing on the randomized evaluations that have become widespread in development economics in recent years). The choice of papers will be based on full paper submissions, which should be sent via email by September 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Successful applicants will be notified by October 11. All participants will have to cover their economy travel and accommodations.
