18th International Conference on Social Dilemmas

June 3-7, 2019 | Sedona, Arizona
Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock

The International Conference on Social Dilemmas (ICSD) encompasses topics broadly related to social dilemmas, in particular research that addresses conflicts between narrow self-interest and collective well-being.

It spans a diverse range of scientific disciplines (including but not limited to anthropology, biology, economics, environmental science, management, marketing, neuroscience, political science, psychology and sociology). Social dilemmas often transcend the traditional disciplinary boundaries and are better understood when different academic fields and intellectual perspectives are considered.

The topics of the contributions are expected to reflect the breadth of social dilemma research including closely related topics such as a social preferences, emotions, social norms, signaling, reputation and beliefs, trust, cooperation and competition. We welcome theoretical work, as well as empirical and experimental work from both the field and the laboratory!
