We are pleased to announce the Third Annual NYU-CESS (New York University Center for Experimental Social Sciences) Conference on Experimental Political Science for Friday, February 5th, 2010 and Saturday, February 6th, 2010.
The Conference is an annual event that we hope will bring together researchers interested in experimental methodology in political science broadly. That is, we welcome the participation of scholars who work in the field and those who work in the lab as well as the participation of political psychologists and political economists. Furthermore, we welcome the participation of scholars who are not experimentalists themselves but are interested in learning and discussing experimental methods as well as those interested in the relationship between the experimental method and analyzing observational data in political science.
The Conference will be a two day event with 13 papers presented. We also plan to host a discussion on the possibility of forming a Section of the American Political Science Association on Experimental Methods. We have confirmed the following authors as paper presenters for the Third Annual Conference:
