The DR@W Forum will be run online during the Summer term of 2020 provisionally via Zoom. We are aiming to retain the existing Thursday 14.30 pm time-slot wherever possible for UK / EU speakers, but some sessions may need to run later. Links to the live session will be added to this schedule page as soon as I am supplied with them.

DR@W Forum is an interdisciplinary discussion series which focuses on theoretical and empirical research about decision making. The usual structure of the forum is a 30 minute introduction of the topic/working paper related to decision research, followed by a discussion. The audience prefers discussing work-in-progress topics as opposed to finished papers. We meet on Thursdays between 2:30 and 3:45 pm during term tim, in the extension on the third floor of the Library (at the Wolfson Research Exchange Area), unless otherwise advertised. Contact John Taylor (John.Taylor[at] if you would like to suggest a speaker for a future event. Notifications of upcoming DR@W Forum events along with other Brain, Behaviour and Society GRP related activities can be obtained by registering with the moderated GRP BSci email list here.

For security reasons, please do not share these Zoom session codes. If you wish to invite a colleague to join us, I can give them access.
