Lunchseminarium: An alternative measure of forecast overprecision and its correlates with trading propensity

Time: 2/19/2019 at 12:15 PM,
Location: Gothenburg Research Institute - Room 326, level 3, Viktoriagatan 13, Göteborg

Event type: Research profile seminar

Forecasting studies frequently use confidence interval tasks to illustrate the tendency to trust personal forecasts too much (overprecision). Pointing at deficiencies of the standard assignment, we advance an alternative, more direct, measure of forecast overconfidence and use the modified task to test the overprecision hypothesis.

Workshop on Cultural Landscapes in Transformation

Time: 3/21/2019 at 8:00 AM,
Location: Gothenburg Research Institute - Level 3, Viktoriagatan 13, Gothenburg

Event type: Workshop

In this workshop, we aim to take ideas about landscape and its socio-cultural layers, and peel some of them away to get at and explore how the conservation and protection of wildlife re-organizes cultural landscapes in Scandinavia. The contributions will have in common a concern with the different impacts and realities as rooted in, and construed by, time and space.
