Event: Master Seminar on the Foundations of Judgment and Decision Making

 Speaker: Lisa Ordonez (Dept. of Managment & Organizations)

Title: Time Pressure and Decision Making

The “Master Seminar” has been held successfully in the past 12 years. It is administratively a graduate course, with registered students, for the Fall 2012, from Cognitive Science, Management and Organizations, Law, Marketing, Linguistics, Psychology and Philosophy.  The Master Seminar welcomes auditors, including intermittent ones.  Each session will focus on foundational issues, aiming at a highly educated, but largely interdisciplinary, audience.  The speakers are expressly invited to introduce their fields quite broadly, in the first and longest part of their talk, and then present state-of-the-art research, in an accessible form, without sacrifice of rigor.  A lively discussion usually follows these presentations.
