The organisers of DISC 2014 had a great innovation that I have not seen in any other conference:

At the registration desk, you just pick up your name tag.

That's it. You don't get a conference bag (you have a bag with you anyway). You don't get a printed copy of your receipt (you already got a receipt when you did the registration online). You don't get a paper copy of the proceedings (it's available online for download). You don't get gifts, pens, notepads, advertisements of book publishers, or the annual report of the local university. In general, you don't get anything that you would just throw away.

(For convenience, some paper copies of the conference program and some USB sticks with the proceedings book are available.)

This is very easy for both the conference organisers and the participants. No extra things to carry around. No pointless waste. Great idea, many thanks to the local organisers!

The capacity for strategic thinking about the payoff-relevant actions of conspecifics is not well understood across species. We use game theory to make predictions about choices and temporal dynamics in three abstract competitive situations with chimpanzee participants. Frequencies of chimpanzee choices are extremely close to equilibrium (accurate-guessing) predictions, and shift as payoffs change, just as equilibrium theory predicts. The chimpan...

"The Golden Goose Award honors researchers whose federally funded research may not have seemed to have significant practical applications at the time it was conducted but has resulted in major economic or other benefits to society."
