Regular sessions will be introduced by two opening lectures held by our keynote speakers: Marie Claire Villeval (GATE – University of Lion) and Martin Dufwenberg (Bocconi University and University of Arizona).
The organization will sponsor the social dinner for the participants and accommodation for the speakers. No fee is required, but all participants are warmly requested to attend all sessions.
