16th International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking 2016

Las Vegas

Jun 6 - 10, 2016

The 16th International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking conference dates back to 1974, when the founding figure in the gambling field, Dr. Bill Eadington, decided to convene a few dozen thinkers to discuss a topic that had received virtually no research attention. Today, this conference is recognized as the premier gathering of gambling intellectuals in the world.

Held only every three years, the conference convenes academics, researchers, and other experts from all fields, representing a diverse array of disciplines and points of view, to present their latest and most important work. At the last gathering in 2013, more than 450 attendees from 27 countries attended.

Topics cover a broad variety of disciplines including economics, public policy, mathematics, social sciences, psychology, and treatment.
