We are thrilled to announce, in partnership with Bocconi University, the first ever virtual World Congress.
Over the past few weeks, the Econometric Society and Bocconi University have been working very hard to make the virtual version of the World Congress a success.
Of course, we were all excited to enjoy Bocconi University's tremendous hospitality and the beautiful city of Milan, but COVID-19 and the uncertainty of summer travel forced us to reconsider. This was initially disappointing, most especially to those at Bocconi University who have worked tirelessly for many months to set the stage for a successful in-person Congress. However, we hope you are as excited as we are now about this development. We expect our World Congress to be a transformative event for the Society and Bocconi University.
The dates of the Congress remain roughly the same – August 17-21, 2020 – though the Congress may be expanded by a few days on either side of the week. At this point, we are still working out registration dates and fees and many other details, but rest assured we will share this information as soon as it is available.
We can't wait to welcome you to what we know will be an amazing event. We are especially excited to welcome those who would not have been able to join us in Milan due to the high costs of travel.
