When a crisis hits, as we are experiencing now with Covid-19, the economy goes into a tailspin, demand drops and firm profits plummet. Yet, not all industries and firms are affected in the same way. It is fairly straightforward to understand why the crisis-produced drop in demand will be much larger in some sectors of the economy than in others: if people are confined at home, air travel will drop to almost nothing, but video game sales may soar as a bored population seeks entertainment they can enjoy despite the lockdown.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, the reaction of populations and the response of governments in various countries raise many questions.
Cognitive science can help us understand the biases that affect these reactions, and the apparent irrationality of some of them. In this interactive session, Professor Olivier Sibony will use examples drawn from the response to the pandemic in various countries to illustrate several cognitive biases.
The discussion will highlight the dangers that the same cognitive biases present for executives in their strategic decisions, and the lessons they can draw to avoid them.

We are pleased to announce the organization of the 12th edition of the Medici Summer School in Management Studies for doctoral students and young researchers which will be held in Boston, Massachusetts, June 15 – June 19, 2020. The school is organized and sponsored by Bologna Business School (University of Bologna), HEC Paris (Society and Organizations Center and the HEC Foundation), and MIT Sloan School of Management (Economic Sociology PhD Program).
D-TEA (Decision: Theory, Experiments, Applications) is an annual workshop dealing with decision sciences, held by HEC, Paris. It aims to promote dialogs between theory, experimental findings, and applications (where “applications” might mean actual decision making as well as the construction of theoretical or empirical models in the social sciences). One of D-TEA’s goals is to highlight recent development in the field, and bring together researchers who work on similar questions. To this end, D-TEA has an annual “theme”, and it gives priority to papers related to the theme.
This year’s D-TEA was planned to be held in Paris, during June 16-19 (Tuesday to Friday), 2020 around the theme of Prospect Theory. In light of the COVID-19 crisis, it was decided to hold it on-line. Experience with on-line teaching and meetings suggests that people find participation more exhausting than real life interaction. This, coupled with the need to accommodate time restrictions of participants all over the globe, led to the decision to shorten talks to 15 minutes. As the on-line format does not allow the natural live discussions between and after talks, it was decided toorganize talks around main sub-topics add invited talks and round table discussions
We look forward to meeting you virtually !Registration
The restrictions enacted by governments throughout the world in response to Covid-19 has put millions of workers and consumers at home, accelerating the pace of digital transformation.
Firms are facing today multiple urgent and crucial questions, including in relation to the organisation of the workforce, management of data, monitoring of suppliers and contract performance, choice of infrastructure and software providers, and prioritisation of investment among multiple technologies (AI, blockchain, etc.).
