ISPS Experiments Workshop

The ISPS Experiments Workshop is an opportunity for faculty and students from Yale and neighboring schools (Columbia, Princeton, MIT, etc.) to present their research and get feedback on works in progress. The focus is on research that involves lab, survey, field, and natural experiments as well as methodological works that improves the design and analysis of experiments. As ISPS is an interdisciplinary organization, we welcome speakers and attendees from a variety of social science disciplines.

The ISPS Experiments Workshop meets on selected Fridays from 12:00-1:15 p.m. at ISPS, 77 Prospect Street, Room A001.  Lunch is served.
