In 2014 the Amsterdam School of Economics of the University of Amsterdam will host the 6th Amsterdam Symposium on Behavioral and Experimental Economics.

Theme:
This year the focus is on the role of verbal and nonverbal cues in social interactions. Communication is often very effective in inducing cooperation and coordination. We will discuss why communication is often such an important factor in interactions, and what kind of characterstics people typically look at to predict the behavior of others, and which characteristics are actually predictive of behavior. We approach these questions from different angles, and are very excited to have the following experts on our program:
