The Division of Social Sciences and the Social Sciences Experimental Laboratory (SSEL) atNew York University Abu Dhabi, and the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute are pleased to sponsor the Third Winter Experimental Social Sciences Institute (WESSI) at NYU Abu Dhabi January 10-21, 2016.

The Institute is designed to provide training for social science graduate students and junior faculty in experimental methods, broadly defined. The institute will provide training in lab, field, lab-in-the-field, and survey experimental methodology and cover a broad range of substantive topics in the social sciences drawn from economics, political science, and sociology. Practical training for lab-in-the-field experimentation will be provided. The institute will also include a special module on the issues and concerns of conducting experiments in Africa, the Middle East, and the surrounding region.

Importantly, each student at the Institute will be given the opportunity to receive personal feedback on his or her own research, through presentations during the Institute and from meeting individually with faculty.

Due to generosity from the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute, students at WESSI 2016 will not pay tuition and shared housing will be provided free of charge. Students are only responsible for their own transportation expenses and most meals. PhD students at NYU are eligible for a limited number of transportation scholarships.

The application process for WESSI 2016 will likely open in June 2015 and more details on the lecturers and specific schedule will be available at that time.
