This seminar is the primary forum for the Decision Consortium, a University-wide distributed center for scholarship on decision making. Each session involves a vigorous discussion of new ideas and research on problems that have significant decision making elements. The typical session is led by a member of the Consortium who presents recent developments in his or her research program. The session also features discussants who study similar issues who offer their views and suggestions about the problems the presenter seeks to solve. Sessions emphasize vigorous participation by all in attendance, including students.
