The 7th ICMC conference

The International Choice Modelling Conference (ICMC) steering committee is pleased to bring the conference to Reykjavik, Iceland, from 23 to 25 May 2022. The 2022 conference will be co-chaired by Stephane Hess and Erlend Dancke Sandorf. We are aiming at an in person conference but will consider options for online attendance where required.

For details on past conferences in the ICMC series, please visit the main ICMC site.

Abstract submission

The deadline for submitting abstracts is 14 December 2021. Submissions are handled via easychair.

Papers for presentation at the conference will be selected on the basis of extended abstracts (800-1000 words). Abstracts should be detailed enough to provide adequate information on the motivation, the uniqueness of the work, the data and analysis methods, application potential and policy relevance, and obtained or anticipated results.

Only a single presentation per speaker will be permitted. Multiple submissions involving the same authors are allowed, but at the decision stage, authors will be asked to confirm speaker details.

In line with ICMC tradition, we welcome both theoretical and applied contributions, where for both, the emphasis is on novelty. In addition, given the cross-disciplinary nature of ICMC, authors are invited to highlight any cross-cutting appeal of their contribution.

In addition to the above long-standing topics, contributions are especially welcome on:
