The University of Milano-Bicocca will host the 35th Annual Conference of the European Association of Law and Economics (EALE) on September 20-22, 2018.
The workshop will take place at University of Milano-Bicocca on 3-5 september 2018
The subjective approach to probability has historically had great importance in the comprehension of uncertainty phenomena, as witnessed by the works of de Finetti, Dubins, Savage and of too many other scholars to mention explicitly.
Although mostly superseded by the axiomatic setting inaugurated by Kolmogoroff, the subjective approach is common to all those studies in which probability is not taken as an assumption but rather as part of the solution to specific mathematical problems in statistics, gambling, game theory, economics.
In organizing this meeting we aim at putting together researchers who, each in his own field, share such fundamental view and at bringing to the general attention the work done so far and the great future potential.
The Mathematics of Subjective Probability‘ workshop — hopefully only a first event of a future series — welcomes all mathematicians who are interested in the topic.

The conference addresses the origin and prospects of democracy and dictatorship, policy control and governance structures in comparative political systems and transition processes from dictatorship to democracy and vice versa. We will have up to 36 papers presented in three parallel sessions, in addition to four keynote lectures. Bringing together scholars that are interested in interdisciplinary work comparing political systems is our focus.
We welcome theoretical as well as empirical papers by both economists and other social scientists with an interdisciplinary background. In particular, papers may cover topics such as:
• Institutional change and prosperity
• Violence and political stability
• Constitutional history of democracy
• Political economy of revolutions
• Political accountability in autocracies
• Culture, religion, and political institutions
Deadlines and Submission:
• Abstract submission deadline August 1, 2016 (see conference webpage)
• Notification of acceptance August 31, 2016
• Full paper submission deadline December 31, 2016
• Registration open until January 15, 2017
