Just as physics provides a foundation for chemistry, and chemistry for medicine, biology is the natural foundation for any science that seeks to understand the behavior of living beings. Recent years have witnessed a surge in empirical and theoretical research that establishes connections between economics and biology. In particular, these two disciplines are increasingly being combined in order to enhance our understanding of the ultimate forces that drive (human) motivation. For this 4th edition of the Toulouse Biology and Economics workshop, we have invited speakers who have conducted research either on mechanisms whereby traits are transmitted between individuals in a population, and/or on how the structure of this population affects such transmission.

No registration fees.

Besides the plenary sessions, there will be a poster session
Submissions (abstract + C.V.) should be sent to econbio_poster@iast.fr no later than March 31, 2016.
