[Research Workshop] iRisk: Decision-making under risk and uncertainty
Date and Location – from 7 to 8 July 2022 in Lille
organized in honor of Prof. Louis EECKHOUDT
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES
Uncertainty is pervasive and plays a major role in decision-making. Whether agents pursuing individual goals, or policymakers pursuing social objectives, decision-makers rarely know what the relevant states of the world are. A proper understanding of individual behavior in the face of uncertainty is of great importance for the construction of realistic economic models capable of making accurate predictions, as well as for prescriptive applications guiding decision-making processes.
To celebrate the launch of iRisk, its new research center, IÉSEG School of Management will hold a multidisciplinary workshop on decision-making under risk and uncertainty. Because the creation of the iRisk center would not have been possible without Professor Louis Eeckhoudt, this workshop is also a unique occasion to celebrate Louis’ career and contributions to decision theory and the economics of risk.
The workshop will gather industry, policymakers, and academic participants and promote dialogs between theory, experimental findings, and applications (in the sense of actual decision-making or the construction of theoretical or empirical models in the social sciences).
All invited talks will be given by leading experts in their respective fields. Theoretical talks will provide new theoretical models focusing on a real-world application and/or on how to make these models relevant in the real world. Fields of practical applications and real-world examples of decision-making include climate change, health, data science, finance, psychology, artificial intelligence, and economics, among others.
