The European Association for Decision Making (EADM) is an interdisciplinary organisation dedicated to the study of normative, descriptive, and prescriptive theories of decision making.
It has it origins in a Research Conference on Subjective Probability, organised in 1969 by Wendt, Stael von Holstein and Vlek in Hamburg. From 1971 the conferences broadened their scope to Subjective Probability, Utility and Decision Making (SPUDM), and were organised biannually in venues all over Western and Eastern Europe. The Association was founded formally in August 1993.

On behalf of both the Society for Judgment and Decision Making and the European Association for Decision Making, we invite applications for awards from the Jane Beattie Memorial Fund.
Applications will be accepted until 21 June, 2013, for travel to SPUDM, and until 3 days after notification of paper/poster acceptances for the SJDM meeting or any other purpose.
The JBMF Committee plans to make all award decisions concerning SPUDM by July 1, and all other decisions by August 31. The committee anticipates making two awards one for SPUDM, in amounts ranging from approximately $400-$750 U.S.
The committee for this year's award consists of Daniel Read, Anton Kuehberger, and Marcel Zeelenberg.
The Beattie Scholarship is now sponsored jointly by the Society for Judgment and Decision Making and the European Association for Decision Making. On behalf of both organizations, we again invite applications for awards from the Jane Beattie Memorial Fund. This fund was established in memory of SJDM and EADM member Jane Beattie and her contributions to judgment and decision research.
The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships to subsidize travel to North America or Europe for purposes of scholarly activity by a foreign scholar in the area of judgment and decision research, broadly defined. Attendance at the annual SJDM meeting or SPUDM meeting is one example of an activity that would be appropriate for support, but by no means the only one. All scholars outside of the destination are eligible to apply.

Note that EADM is sponsoring awards made to its members (including student members), so applicants should please be sure to indicate if they EADM members.
The EADM site offers many useful resources for student and faculty with an interest in decision making. For example, you can learn more about Judgment and Decision making by reading our latest EADM articles, browsing the latest publications in JDM journals, Learning and Teaching resources, etc.
Use your mouse to go over the Resources tab in the main menu and hover or click on the Student & Faculty tab: you will have access to the complete list of resources available.
It is our ambition to provide resources on judgment and decision-making specifically designed for special audiences (Professionals/Practitioners, members of the Public, the Media).
