Submissions

BSPA has received proposals for short presentations or ‘lightning talks’ highlighting research in eight key areas in which behavioral scientists could have significant influence on policy. These include:

– Education & Culture                                                 – Health
– Energy & Environment                                            – Justice & Ethics           
– Development  (Poverty)                                          – Management & Labor
– Financial Decision Making                                    – Government Partnerships

The ‘lightning talk’ session is designed to inform and influence academics, policy makers, and managers. Presentations may demonstrate recent key research findings with meaningful implications for policy and practice and need not present new work-in-progress. 

Special thanks to Mary Steffel, Dave Nussbaum, and Emory Nelms who helped with reviewing the submissions.
