SEESHOP 6 and LO Workshop (Cardiff, 7-10 June 2012)

Last weekend saw the 6th annual SEESHOPconference and the 2nd ever Local Organisers (LO) workshop for the IMGAME project

The LO workshop was held on 7 June and brought together the postgrads and postdocs who help us run the IMGAME project by booking rooms, recruiting participants and generally making sure that we are able to collect the data we need. The aim of the LO workshop was to discuss developments of the methods, share hints and tips on how to manage the fieldwork and discuss some of the preliminary results from the first year.

After the LO workshop, the sixth SEESHOP got underway on Friday 8 June. The conference was a mixture of new participants and old-timers from previous years. The quality of the papers presented was uniformly high and we had lots of really good discussions about expertise and its use in settings ranging from management consultancy, industrial training and the courtroom to the natural and neurological sciences. We also had some lively debates about the relationship between expertise and democracy and on whether or not ‘nudge’ theory could (or should) be used to reduce the chance of maverick or marginal science influencing lay decision-making.
