We would like to invite presentations that use laboratory or field experiments to investigate social preferences that shape philanthropic giving (including altruism, reciprocity, inequity aversion, warm-glow giving, etc.), techniques charities may use to increase giving, the role of culture on giving, and development of social preferences (i.e., experiments with children/young adults). Topics that are also of interest are volunteerism, the organization of charities/how they operate, and organ/blood donation. You can visit to see the papers that were presented in previous years. Videos of the 2015 SPI Annual Conference presentations can be viewed on the SPI Hub YouTube channel.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS: Due to the large number of submissions, we will invite some participants to present a poster rather than a full presentation. If you would be willing to present a poster, please check "Yes" below. We strongly encourage students to select "Yes" to this question, since in past years most students have been invited for poster presentations.
