Bounded Rationality in Choice Conference

The BRIC (Bounded Rationality in Choice) conference brings together researchers in choice theory, experimental economics and behavioral economics who are interested in how bounds on rationality play out in individual decisions and interactive situations. The conference was founded by Paola Manzini and Marco Mariotti in 2013 and has since become an annual event. This year, the local organizers are Alex Jakobsen and Yuval Salant.

The conference is sponsored by the Center for Mathematical Studies in Economics and Management Science at the Kellogg School of Management.
