This symposium is unique in that it brings together a range of constituencies involved in the use of neuroscience techniques to understand consumer decision making – world renowned academics, neuroscience research companies, marketing research executives and industry leaders. It offers an opportunity to learn, present and discuss the latest breakthroughs on using neuroscientific and physiological measures to inform decision making in individuals, groups, societies, organizations, and markets
Call for Abstracts
Deadline for Oral presentations: March 31, 2023 (11:59 p.m. EDT). Late-breaking poster presentations will be accepted for review until June 30, 2023 (11:59 p.m. EDT).
The organizing committee will select papers for presentation at the symposium based on extended abstracts (one page, single spaced). The abstract should state the study’s objectives, briefly describe the methods, summarize the results and state the conclusions. The body of the abstract should be no longer than 2,300 characters, including punctuation (not spaces). All abstracts should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 pm EDT on March 31, 2023. Decisions about the abstracts will be communicated to the authors by April 30, 2023. Selected papers would ideally not be published prior to the symposium.
Selections will be based on quality, relevance to decision neuroscience, and contribution to breadth of topics and interdisciplinary approaches and relevance for industry. (Note that all abstracts do not necessarily require neuroscience data but should have the potential to encourage discussions about a possible role for neuroscience.) We consider not just the individual merits of the papers, but how they complement other submissions from scholars in different fields to form a cohesive session. The organizers will invite authors of the abstracts not selected for talks to present their work as posters. Preference will also be given to new speakers.
More details about the conference, registration, invited speakers, travel awards and accommodations will be updated regularly on our website. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by email: [click-for-email].

Previous Conference Programs
Starting in 2010, we have hosted annual symposia at Temple and institutions across the country. The conference was held virtually in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid.
We have reserved a block of rooms at the Sonesta Hotel in Philadelphia. As rooms are limited, we recommend reserving your room as soon as possible. All remaining rooms from the block will be released to the general public on June 30, 2023.
A shuttle will be provided from the Sonesta to Temple University for each day of the conference.
Philadelphia is a vibrant city with a number of accommodation options in Center city. Should you choose one of these options, you can find your own way to Temple for the conference using public transit or ride share options.
