Thinking Txoko

Thinking Txoko >>>

The Thinking-Txoko is an innovative alternative space at the  ICOT 2015 . 

The  will be situated in the main hall of the conference and it will gather different speakers and professionals to discuss certain themes of the conference.

By being in an open space there will be more freedom and opportunities to interact, listen, ask and debate for the attendees. 


During the days of ICOT2015 we will open a "TänkBar" (a venue with thinking on the menu) in connection to interesting lectures and sessions.

In a tasty and visual environment between keynote and featured sessions , we want to help the participants to reflect on what they just have heard in presentations or experienced during workshops.

During coffee breaks and lunches, we will therefore "enhance" the usual café and restaurant environment with various visual aids and tangible thinking tools to help participants to think together while eating or taking a coffee."

50 person per session permited.

Cost: FREE

Language: English

See pdf >>> for more information.

Schedule of the presenters that we follow up in TänkBar:

"Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton tried to measure as accurately as possible stones falling from the Tower of Pisa and apples from trees, even though they had no interest in stones or apples. They did it because they were interested in the data that could be generated to evaluate physical theories.

In the same way, data can be obtained on a football pítch and can be very useful for research in economics. In this talk I will show how, this data is immensly useful to evaluate,for the first time ,using the theories about human behavior of John F. Nash (on whose life 'A Beautiful Mind''is based) , theories of efficient markets in financial economics,the reason why he was given the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2013, various theories about workplace discrimination or theories about the effect of social pressure on human behavior.
