The Interdisciplinary Symposium on Decision Neuroscience brings together a range of constituencies involved in the use of neuroscience techniques to understand decision making: world-renowned academics, neuroscience research companies, marketing research executives, and industry leaders. It offers an opportunity to mingle, present and listen to the latest breakthroughs in using neuro and physiological measures to inform decision making in individuals, groups, societies, organizations, and markets.


ISDN 2019

On June 7-8, 2019, Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business will host the Ninth Annual Interdisciplinary Symposium on Decision Neuroscience (ISDN) in Durham, North Carolina. More details and registration will be available soon.

Abstract Information

Abstract Submission Deadline: March 8, 2019 (11:59 p.m. EST)

Late-breaking poster presentations will be accepted for review until May 10, 2019 (11:59 p.m. EDT)

Presentation abstracts should be emailed to isdn19@temple.edu by the deadline. Please use the template provided here.

The organizing committee will select papers for presentation at the symposium based on extended abstracts. The abstract should state the study’s objectives, briefly describe the methods, summarize the results obtained, and state the conclusions. Selections will be based on quality, relevance to decision neuroscience, and contribution to breadth of topics and interdisciplinary approaches. (Note that all abstracts do not necessarily require neuroscience data but should have the potential to encourage discussions about a possible role for neuroscience.) Selected papers would ideally not be published prior to the symposium.
