Kahneman Lecture

Since 2004, IAREP organizes the "Kahneman Lecture". Professor Daniel Kahneman has graciously agreed that IAREP can designate one of the keynote addresses at our annual conference as the "Kahneman Lecture", in the light of his Nobel prize award. The lecture is sponsored by Elsevier, the publishers of the Journal of Economic Psychology, the Association's journal.
