The Behavior, Energy, & Climate Change Conference (BECC) will be held October 16–18, 2017, in Sacramento, California, and the call for abstracts is now open. The BECC is focused on understanding the behavior and decision-making of individuals and organizations and using that knowledge to accelerate the transition to an energy-efficient and low-carbon future. The BECC draws a broad mix of attendees, including researchers in economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and law; decision makers and legislators from federal, state, and local agencies; practitioners such as manufacturers, architects, and entrepreneurs; and various influencers such as community organizers, nonprofit leaders, and media, religious, and entertainment professionals.
The BECC is inviting 400 to 500 word abstracts for formal oral presentations, with or without accompanying full papers, as well as five-minute “lightening talks,” panel discussions, and poster presentations. Abstracts may be submitted as part of a group or individually. The BECC is seeking submissions on new and well-documented applications of behavioral approaches in energy or climate policies, programs aimed at the individual, organizational, and community levels, new and relevant behavioral research findings, measured results, and best practices. The deadline for submission is April 1st, 2017.
