Workshop

We will host the Bogotá Experimental Economics Workshop from January 8th to the 10th (prior to the Conference) at Universidad del Rosario. The aim of the Workshop is to provide hands-on training in tools that contribute to sound experimental research methods.
 
For this edition will include a special emphasis on open and transparent empirical methods for experimental economics research. Prof. Peter Moffat will lead a module on experimetrics (the econometric analysis of experimental data). In addition, a team of BITSS catalysts will lead a module on methods to improve openness, transparency and replicability in experimental economics research (including hands on training on power analysis, pre-registration and pre-analysis plans, version control and dynamic documents).
 
We invite graduate students (PhD and Master’s level) and junior faculty to apply for the workshop. The fee for attending the 2.5-day Workshop is 200 USD. This fee includes their participation as observers in the Conference, and the option to present an ongoing project or an experimental design during a poster session at the Conference.
 
For selected participants in need of financial support we will provide partial scholarships including lodging and a discount on the fee (but please note we cannot support travel expenses).
 


 

Invited Instructors


Peter Moffatt

Professor Moffatt is the author of the book Experimetrics. He will lead the Workshop sessions on the analysis of experimental econometric data.

The workshop is designed to cover theory and give participants hands-on practice, so that they can leave with practical tools to incorporate into their research practice. It will introduce researchers to statistical and econometric techniques for analyzing experimental data, as well as tools and practical steps they can take to make their research more transparent, reliable and credible, while helping make science more open and reproducible.
