Behavioral economics and behavioral finance typically incorporate cognitive and social factors in modeling economic decisions. These include decisions made by the buyers and sellers of insurance-related products. The field of behavioral insurance attempts to explain many of the discrepancies between theories and observations within insurance markets.
The workshop will be hosted by the Munich Risk and Insurance Center (MRIC) at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) in Munich, Germany, and organized by Andreas Richter and Jörg Schiller. It will be held in cooperation with the Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk (CEAR) at Georgia State University. The preliminary schedule has Professors Benjamin Handel (University of California, Berkeley), Justin Sydnor (University of Wisconsin-Madison), and Stefan Trautmann (Heidelberg University) giving plenary talks.
Researchers are invited to submit papers that offer new experimental, econometric, or theoretical insights into human behavior in the insurance context. Submissions should have an insurance and/or decision under risk and uncertainty background and establish a link to non-traditional demand or supply theories. The workshop will take place in Munich on December 12-13, 2022. Please submit proposals electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org as file attachments in PDF format by August 15, 2022.
