About the Econometric Society/Bocconi University World Congress 2020

The 12th Econometric Society World Congress, and largest ever, hosted in 2020 with Bocconi University, occurs only once every five years and was slated to take place in Milan at Bocconi University. COVID intervened and the week-long conference went virtual. The Congress opened with Welcome Remarks by Yale University economist and President of the Econometric Society, Orazio Attanasio, and the former Prime Minister of Italy and current Bocconi University President Mario Monti. These prominent speakers were joined by many more throughout the week, among them three Nobel laureates of Economics and a host of other world leaders in the economics profession.

Over the course of a week, attendees had access to sixty live invited speakers and more than 1,300 accepted contributed papers presented in recorded sessions, providing 24-hour access to 700 hours of content. The program covers topics ranging from economics and racial justice featuring Kerwin Kofi Charles and Imran Rasul among others to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning chaired by MIT and Amazon economist Victor Chernozhukov and featuring Nobel laureate Esther Duflo. Nobel laureate Abhijit Banerjee discusses Social Interactions and Development while Chief Microsoft Economist Mike Schwarz speaks on consumer data and IT firms and Yale economist and former World Bank Chief Economist Penny Goldberg, leads a panel on inequalities.

Based at Yale University and international in scope, the Econometric Society remains one of the few truly global associations for academic economists and has been over decades an important organization guiding the development of economics and econometrics. In addition to publishing its three world-class journals, the Society is deeply committed to working with its six regions – Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, Latin America and North America – bringing economists together through its eight annual regional meetings (two annually in Europe and North America, and one in each remaining region) and its four regional summer and winter schools, plus the recently added international summer school in Dynamic and Structural Econometrics. So successful has the Society been in its mission to promote statistics and mathematical methods that this now permeates all aspects of economics.
