2020 The Foundations of Utility and Risk Conference (FUR)
The Foundations of Utility and Risk Conference (FUR) is an interdisciplinary conference bringing together decision theorists, behavioural scientists, economists, psychologists, mathematicians, management scientists, medical and health scientists, philosophers, statisticians, and other researchers. Currently, it is one of the most prestigious conferences in behavioural science.
The history of FUR Conference dates back to 1982 when Norwegian behavioural scientist Ole Hagen together with Maurice Allais (who subsequently received the Swedish National Bank’s Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel) organised the first FUR Conference in Oslo. Since Oslo, the FUR Conference has been held in in Venice (1984), Aix‐en‐Provence (1986), Budapest (1988), Durham (1990), Paris (1992), Oslo (1994), Mons (1997), Marrakech (1999), Torino (2001), Paris (2004), Rome (2006), Barcelona (2008), Newcastle (2010), Atlanta (2012), Rotterdam (2014), and Coventry (2016), York (2018). Over the course of the FUR history, 6 Nobel laureates have given talks at the conference. We are very pleased that the 2020 FUR Conference will take place for the first time in the Asia-Pacific area: in Sydney. It will be hosted by the University of Technology of Sydney.
