ICES Occasional Brown Bag Lecture for October 20

Events | October 16, 2011

Join us for an ICES Occasional Brown Bag Lecture featuring Alexander Funcke.

Alexander Funcke, of Stockholm University, will present CEKperiment: A New Environment for Conducting Economic Experiments. The talk will take place on Thursday, October 20th, from 12:00 to 1:00pm, in room 400-R of the Truland Building, Arlington campus. Lunch will be provided.

Abstract: Experimental economics is a cumbersome and costly activity. Most experimentalists are limited by accessible subject pools, costs, limited access to programmers.

This presentation has two parts, the first presents a getting started for CEKperiment, an open-source cloud-based environment for constructing and conducting behavioral experimental systems. It is intended to be usable as a tool for the non-programmer and with capabilities for remixes and mash-up. The second part discusses how technology, CEKperiment and future programs, using cross-cultural networks, specialization, outsourcing and automatization (AIs, simulations and processes), will make the experimental methodology less limited and more diffused.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP with Stan Tsirulnikov.
