Event Coverage

The second annual Behavioral Science Summit will highlight the latest developments in behavioral science that are relevant to creativity and innovation, with an opening keynote address by Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize winner and author of Thinking, Fast and Slow. Most of the day will consist of interactive, parallel sessions led by 15 thought leaders in fields such as behavioral economics, organizational behavior, creativity, interaction and experience research. We will end the day with a panel discussion on how findings in the behavioral sciences can be used to solve important problems; this panel will be led by Don Norman, author of The Design of Everyday Things, cofounder of the Nielsen Norman Group and IDEO fellow.

The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University is at the forefront of behavioral science and its application to contemporary issues.

We are an idea incubator – a place where ideas are generated, tested, applied to address important problems, and shared with industry, government, and the world at large. Our scholars and scientists, who come for a year as Center Fellows, include 22 Nobel Laureates, 14 Pulitzer Prize winners, 44 MacArthur Fellows and hundreds of members of the National Academies. They have authored such game-changing books as Freakonomics and The Visual Display of Quantitative Information.
