Call for Expressions of Interest
The next World Congress of the Econometric Society will take place in August 2020 at a location to be decided by the Executive Committee in August 2017. Expressions of interest by potential local organizers are being solicited.
The World Congress is traditionally held mid-late August for 5 days, Monday through Friday, and includes a program of invited and contributed sessions, plenary lectures and social events.
The proposed venue should have a large auditorium for plenary lectures (1,000-1,500 capacity), 3-4 large rooms for parallel invited lectures (250-350 capacity), 30-35 contributed session rooms (30-80 capacity). The expected attendance is 1,500-2,000 people. The host institution is responsible for facilitating accommodations, including inexpensive options for students.
Please send expressions of interest to Claire Sashi, General Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a detailed bid manual. Please also refer to the 2015 World Congress website at http://www.eswc2015.com/ for more information.
Initial proposals should be received by May 31, 2017.
