Values-Driven Judgment and Reasoning
April 6-7, 2007
Our intention is to bring together around 40 scholars with research and teaching interests in issues related to values. The motivation for the conference stems from a perception that a common interest has spawned several separate lines of research that appear to address the same general phenomenon from a variety of different directions.  We hope this conference will examine the key theoretical and empirical issues these perspectives share and facilitate direct communication between scholars. Examples of relevant questions include: How do strongly held values influence perception, construal, and judgment?  What is the relationship between values, cognitive biases, and heuristic processing?  What is the role of affect in the formation, maintenance, and functioning of values?  How does culture affect the acquisition, transmission, and expression of values?

Business and Ethics Conference
May 19-20, 2006
The intention was to bring together scholars with both research and teaching interests in ethical issues confronting managers and business organizations. The motivation for the conference derives less from the recent and very public series of corporate scandals, and more from the increased academic interest in integrating the insights of social psychology with more standard economic theory. In particular, we investigated questions regarding managerial decision-making when individuals are not governed exclusively by material incentives. Examples of such questions include: How should managers design incentives when agents are motivated at least in part by considerations of fairness and trust? What happens to decision-making when the individuals affected by a decision hold heterogeneous ethical values?
