Memory has recently emerged as an important theoretical framework for thinking about wide-ranging problems in economics and decision sciences. MBC*2023 will bring together leading economists, experimental psychologists, and memory theorists for in-depth discussion of current topics at the nexus of these disciplines. The symposium will feature paired presentations by economists and memory scientists, with the paired talks going beyond the format of a traditional paper / discussion in providing the depth in each field required to have a vigorous discussion.
MBC*2023 will be held at the Disney Grand Floridian Resport in Orlando, Florida on June 2nd, 2023.
Yueran Ma, University of Chicago
