Centro Vernon Smith de Economía Experimental at Universidad Francisco Marroquín will host the fourth Antigua Experimental Economics Conference at Casa Popenoe in Antigua Guatemala, to be held in Antigua Guatemala on February 26-27th 2016. A main objective of this conference is to strengthen the ties, within the experimental economics community, between Latin America and the rest of the world.

We invite submissions from experimentalists, researchers and graduate students from around the world. We would like to especially encourage those from, or doing research in, Latin America to apply.

Deadline for submissions is January 8th, but early submissions (December 18th) will receive priority.

This event features a broad cross section of experimental research and world-class plenary speakers.



The conference fee is US$235 for faculty and US$155 for students (up to January 12th), or US$335 for faculty and US$225 for students (after January 12th). The fee includes participation and all meals (coffee breaks, lunches and dinners, including Gala Dinner), except breakfast (to be included in lodging).

As the former capital of Guatemala and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Antigua is one of the most beautiful and best preserved colonial cities in the Americas. This peaceful and idyllic location provides the perfect backdrop for the exchange of ideas. Antigua Guatemala is just 50 minutes from Guatemala City and La Aurora International Airport. See a map of Antigua here. Located in the heart of Antigua, Casa Popenoe was the perfect venue to accommodate the Antigua Experimental Economics Workshop and Conference 2012 in this historic city. Casa Popenoe, built in the XVII Century, is one of the most beautiful estates in Antigua and to this day it preserves its original colonial charm. To view a video of Casa Popenoe click here.
