4th Annual BEST Conference on Human Behaviour &
Decision Making 2022
In 2022, the BEST Centre will host the 4th annual “BEST Conference on Human Behaviour and Decision Making” on Thursday 10th & Friday 11th February at the Queensland University of Technology, Gardens Point Campus, Brisbane Australia.
The Centre for Behavioural Economics, Society and Technology (BEST) is a national and international leader in applied behavioural research. The Centre draws on QUT’s expertise in applied economics and social marketing, while leveraging and amplifying QUT’s expertise in health, science, technology and creative industries. The BEST Centre brings together researchers interested in applying Behavioural Insights to address real world problems in close collaboration with government, industry and the not-for-profit sector.
The conference will bring together academic, private sector and policy researchers to share, learn and collaborate on scientific research focused on understanding human behaviour, and how that impacts decision making and thus society more broadly. This event will be a hybrid-conference, allowing for participants to join in-person and via Zoom.
The Conference welcomes researchers from all fields, including but not limited to: Applied & Experimental Economics, Social Marketing, Psychology, Sociology, Social Psychology & Evolutionary Psychology, Evolutionary Biology, Education, Health, Demography, Sexuality & Gender, Political Science, Religion, Anthropology, Scientometrics, Sports, Engineering, Mathematics, Management, Business Studies, Creative Industries, and Philosophy.
