The Society for Judgment and Decision Making is an interdisciplinary academic organization dedicated to the study of normative, descriptive, and prescriptive theories of judgments and decisions. Its members include psychologists, economists, organizational researchers, decision analysts, and other decision researchers. The Society's primary event is its Annual Meeting, at which Society members present their research. It also publishes the journal Judgment and Decision Making.
The 2016 meeting will take place in Boston, MA, November 18-21. Plenary events will include a keynote talk on Sunday, November 20th delivered by Linda Babcock.
Abstracts may be submitted from May 4 through June 20. Notifications of those selected for talks or posters should be sent out by the end of July. Registration details should be available some time in August. If you are living outside of the U.S., please make sure to start the process of getting here before the last minute.
Here is the call for abstracts, which also provides information about awards and a link to the submission system, which is now open.

Mailing lists: Members of SJDM are added to the sjdm-members mailing list, which is for communications about society business such as meetings and elections. It also provides a password for the members section of this site and a monthly reminder of it. This is a very low-volumue mailing list. You cannot unsubscribe from it. It is the only way the society has to communicate with members. Please make sure your email address is the one you use to receive mail. If you are a member of this society and you are not getting mail about Society elections and other business, please write firstname.lastname@example.org.
The jdm-society mailing list is much higher volume and is open to all for reading and posting, but moderated.
Gmail for several months, ending February 27, 2015, considered most of the list mail as spam. If you use Gmail and did not check your spam or create a filter for sjdm.org, make sure to check the archives to see what you missed.
