The ninth annual West Coast Experiments Conference was held at Stanford GSB on Saturday, May 21, 2016.
WCE is an annual conference that brings together leading scholars and graduate students who conduct experimental research in political science and other social sciences. During the conference, scholars present their experimental research, focusing not only on the substantive question of interest, but also on methodological “take away” points from their research. In this way, the WCE conference is organized more as a methods workshop than as a venue to engage in subfield debates. The goal is to give the audience members applied, practical advice on experimental methods and design in a way that will help them improve their own experimental research.
