The International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking brings together a diverse array of researchers and industry professionals from across the globe to discuss wide-ranging topics in gambling studies. Launched in 1974 by Dr. Bill Eadington—an innovative thinker and founding figure in gambling research—the conference has maintained its status as the largest, oldest, and most prestigious conference of its kind by always looking towards the future and remaining on the cutting-edge of gambling insights.
Held only every three years, the International Gaming Institute at UNLV encourages all students, early-career scholars, established researchers, and gaming industry authorities to submit their latest and most groundbreaking research for the chance to present to the world’s largest gathering of gambling intellectuals.This conference is a special opportunity for our students to learn from, network with and be inspired by the world’s leading experts on gaming and risk taking.
Your support will help us provide scholarships to send 20 of our most promising students to this unique event.
