15th International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking
Las Vegas, Nevada
May 27-31, 2013
The Institute for the Study of Gambling and Commercial Gaming at the University of Nevada Reno, in partnership with the International Gaming Institute at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, invites paper and symposium submissions for The 15th International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking, which will be held at Caesars Palace Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, from May 27 to May 31, 2013.
Based on our experience with prior conferences, we anticipate over 200 academics, researchers, and gaming professionals from throughout the world will present and discuss findings of their work, covering a wide variety of gambling-related topics over the five days of the Conference. Since the First International Conference in 1974, the focus of this Conference has been on the presentation of high quality, objective, scientifically based research that contributes to the knowledge base of gambling, as well as the formation of responsible public policy and public perceptions of gaming industries, and competent regulation and management of gaming operations. This is an important conference—important to the industry, to policy makers, to society at large, and to those who need a better understanding of the often complex issues surrounding gambling.
The objective of the Conference is to stimulate research and facilitate discussion and understanding about gambling and commercial gaming throughout the world.
