Call for Papers/Abstracts: 2016 Symposium on Economic Experiments in Developing Countries

We are pleased to announce that the 2016 Symposium on Economic Experiments in Developing Countries (SEEDEC) will be held on July 12-13 at the Busara Center for Behavioral Economics and Strathmore Business School in Nairobi, Kenya.

The aim of the conference is to bring together the community of scholars who employ laboratory experimental economics methods for research in developing countries. The keynote speaker is Edward Miguel (UC Berkeley). The conference will consist of plenary and parallel sessions.

The conference will be followed on July 13-14 by a matchmaking conference for academics and practitioners from the public and private sectors, also hosted by the Busara Center and Strathmore Business School.

Submissions are invited for papers or extended abstracts 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 submissions of full papers or extended abstracts, which should be emailed to seedec2016@busaracenter.org by April 30, 2016. Successful applicants will be notified by May 30, 2016. All participants will have to cover their travel and accommodation.

We will be scheduling optional excursions (including a safari) and provide activities for children during the day so you can bring your whole family.

For further information, please visit seedec2016kenya.wordpress.com or contact us at seedec2016@busaracenter.org.

We look forward to having you for an exciting conference in Nairobi!
