On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, I am honored and delighted to welcome you to the First Meeting of the Society for the Advancement of Judgment and Decision Making Studies (SEJyD), taking place on July 12 -13, 2016. The conference will be held in Palma (Majorca, Spain), at the CaixaForum Gran Hotel, one of the most spectacular examples of modernist architecture in Mallorca, located in the historical town center.
Our scientific program is rich, varied, and ambitiously broad. It includes plenary lectures by Martin Skov, Konstantinos Katsikopoulos, Wandi Bruine de Bruin, and Todd Hare, one workshop, one panel discussion, 6 spoken paper sessions, and two poster sessions. The breadth of topics in the conference intends to reflect the breadth of contemporary judgment and decision making studies. These have addressed issues in the domains of aesthetics, morals, sport, consumer behavior, and the neural foundations of judgment and decision making.
This conference aspires to embody the main mission of the SEJyD: to promote, encourage and facilitate judgment and decision-making studies by creating platforms for sharing common interests, tutoring of young researchers, and developing interdisciplinary collaborations and joint research projects. Furthermore, as the First of the SEJyD’s Meetings, we are aware that we face the challenge of initiating a series of regular events where researchers can exchange ideas, discover novel opportunities, reacquaint with colleagues, make new friends, and broaden their horizons. We will do our very best to make possible many other SEJyD’s Meetings to follow this one.
As a conference chair of the SEJyD Meeting 2016, I realize that the success of the conference owes the many people who have worked in planning and organizing both the scientific program and supporting local arrangements. Thus, I would like to thank the Session Chairs for their advice and suggestions; the Scientific Committee for their thorough work on the organization of the program; and our sponsors, who have helped us to keep down the costs of the SEJyD Meeting 2016. Recognition should also go to the Local Organizing Committee members, who have all worked extremely hard on crucial aspects of the conference programs and social activities, most of which go unnoticed when conferences run smoothly.
I hope that you will join us in what promises to be a most extraordinary event!
Jaume Rosselló-Mir Conference Chair of the First SEJyD Meeting, 2016
