Because of the global challenges presented by COVID-19, many members have been
asking whether we plan to postpone or cancel this summer's World Congress in Milan
scheduled for August 17-August 21, 2020. Rest assured, we have no plans to postpone
or cancel at this time. We want to let you know that the World Congress team at Bocconi
University and the Econometric Society continue to plan confidently for the Congress.
We’re very grateful for the ongoing work of our Congress Chairs, Program Area
Coordinators and Program Committee members who are reading and grading the
close to 3,000 submissions we received, and of course grateful to everyone who
has submitted and hopes to attend the Congress in August.
The World Congress team is in close contact with the relevant health authorities
in Italy. As this situation unfolds, we remain watchful but also focused on planning
and delivering an excellent World Congress for our worldwide members.
Please check the Congress web site
for periodic updates as the situation evolves.
We look forward to welcoming you to the World Congress in August and wish you
all the best.
