at Harz mountains
Description:

This seminar is concerned with varying topics and thus covers different fields from the research at Christian D. Schade's Chair for Entrepreneurial and Behavioral Decision Making; it is intended for Master and PhD students. Students write seminar papers on selected topics. Often the seminar paper involves the design and implementation of a small experiment and/or the analysis of statistical data. See also announcement on the Chair's website.
The course is held in the form of a 4-day seminar trip to the Harz mountains (January 31 - February 3, 2019) where the participants present their seminar papers on selected topics in front of the entire group. This ensures a more focused working atmosphere, leading to best possible results. (Costs for accommodation and travel will not to be covered.)

Number of participants:
20 Master Students (max.), 3-5 PhD students (on top). Note that the theoretical maximum of 25 students will rarely be reached.

Registration:
The registration document can be downloaded from the website and must be handed in personally or via email to entre@wiwi.hu-berlin.de by October 15, 2018. If more than 20 applications from master students are received, participants will be selected randomly by a lottery draw. If more than five PhD students apply, a separate random draw will be carried out for them.

Topics in the winter term 2018/19 will focus on "Modelling Context and Social Projection in Behavioral Decision Making and Games." On the one hand, the topics will deal with the role of context in decision making and how seemingly irrelevant contextual aspects may change people’s choice behavior and preferences despite other predictions by rational choice theory. The psychological phenomenon of social projection, on the other hand, depicts a person’s tendency to assume that counterparts are driven by the same motives as oneself, which may influence individual choices – both in strategic and nonstrategic scenarios.

A first informational meeting will take place on October, 23, 2018 (2 pm to 4 pm; Spandauer Straße 1 Room 112). For the master students, prepared topics will be distributed among them, taking into account their preferences. However, PhD students can choose their topics themselves freely within the above-mentioned field and will be advised by Professor Schade.
