Aim of this workshop is to bring together scholars coming from different disciplines, like cognitive science, experimental economics and sociology, in order to foster dialogue and scientific exchange. Although all the disciplines already mentioned share a general interest in understanding human social behaviors, this interchange is often promised but seldom realized. This workshop is meant to be an opportunity for researchers coming from different backgrounds to share their interests and discuss their research, in an attempt to overcome disciplinary boundaries and to find new and cross-methodological perspectives.

Confirmed speakers: Francesca Giardini, Christophe Heintz, Department of Cognitive Science, Central European University; Mirco Tonin, Department of Economics, Central European University; Karoly Takacs, Institute of Sociology and Social Policy, Corvinus University, Budapest.
