2019 Shanghai Workshop of Behavioral and Experimental Economics Held at SOE


From June 24-25, the 2019 Shanghai Workshop of Behavioral and Experimental Economics, sponsored by the SOE, the IAR and the Key Laboratory of Mathematical Economics (SUFE), Ministry of Education, was held at Room 807 of the SOE Building. The workshop was organized by the experimental economics team of the SOE.

A number of world-renowned scholars attended this year's workshop and delivered keynote speeches, including Professor Theo Offerman of University of Amsterdam, Professor Roberto Weber of University of Zurich, Professor Stefan Trautmann of Heidelberg University, and Professor Daniel Houser of George Mason University. About 60 scholars and doctoral students in this field were present at the workshop, including those from San Diego State University, Nanyang Technological University, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Lingnan University, Tsinghua University, Peking University, Beijing Normal University, and SUFE.

Professor Zhenxing Huang, Assistant Dean of SOE, delivered opening remarks. He first extended a warm welcome to all the guests.  He briefed the guests on the recent development of the SOE as well as the news that SUFE Economics & Business ranks among the world's Top 1% disciplines in ESI. He also introduced the latest Tilburg University Economics Ranking based on high quality research publications from 2009 to 2018 in 35 respected economics journals, on which the discipline of economics of SUFE ranked 1st in China, 2nd in Asia and 69th worldwide. 

He pointed out that the experimental economics research team of SUFE is one of the most active and largest experimental economics research teams in China. Its team members (Ninghua Du, Lan Yao, Bin Miao, Zhenxing Huang, Tingting Ding, Simin He) have been using experimental methods to answer scientific questions related to game theory, decision theory and market behavior design, and their research results have been published by many top academic journals such as American Economic Review, Econometrica, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Management Science, and Games and Economic Behavior. He expected that scholars at home and abroad could have in-depth discussions and exchanges through the workshop and establish a lasting and interactive mechanism.

  The SOE attaches great importance to the construction of emerging disciplines such as Behavioral and Experimental Economics that are in line with international frontiers, and has built a behavioral and experimental economics research team with strong research momentum. With the aim to serve the urgent needs of the nation with world first-class research, the SOE has established an international academic exchange network consisting of workshops, lectures, forums, conferences, and seminars. Through the efficient, focused and interactive academic exchange platform, this workshop aims to further promote in-depth development and international exchanges of behavioral and experimental economics research.
