The Ethics Research Interest Group will provide a forum for promoting the use of decision science methods in empirical ethics research and for examining the ethical implications of decision-analysis and cost-effectiveness methodologies. The group welcomes the involvement of members who may not identify themselves as ethics researchers but who wish to further examine the ethical dimensions and uses of decision-making research and its methods..


SMDM Committees and Interest Groups will be holding meetings during breakfast and lunch. Please see the schedule below. A mission statement or agenda for these groups may be found under each daily tab during the appropriate time slot.

All interested attendees are encouraged to join a committee or interest group during these times.   

Groups meeting during lunch, lunch is not provided. We ask that participants use the first 1/2 hour of the break to have their lunch for which the hotel offers many options, then join the group for the last hour of the break for discussions.
