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 spihub.org/events/conferences 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.
