Dec 15 - 16, 2015
For more than fifty years, the European Winter Meetings have fostered interaction among a small group of young scholars, who presented their work by invitation, and a group of senior academics representing different regions and fields of specialization. Many of today’s leading European economists kick-started their careers at one of these meetings. At the turn of the century, the meetings began to focus on PhD students close to finishing their thesis.
In 2013, the European Standing Committee of the Econometric Society decided to widen the scope of the meetings with an open call for submissions without any regional stratification. But the meeting was to retain its distinct identity with three foci: scientific work of the best quality, PhD students on the job market, and close interaction between junior and senior researchers.
The first European Winter Meeting of the Econometric Society in this new format took place in Madrid, Spain, on December 15-16, 2014. The second and next EWMES will be held at IGIER-Università Bocconi in Milan, Italy, on December 15-16, 2015. The meeting will host six parallel sessions of contributed papers and two plenary invited sessions. The plenary lectures will be given by Orazio Attanasio and John Moore. Program Committee members – see the list below – will take responsibility for organizing and chairing the contributed sessions. They will also provide comments and foster interaction across research fields.
The Program Committee Chair is Jean-Marc Robin, Sciences Po, Paris and University College London. The Local Arrangements Chair is Massimo Marinacci, Bocconi University and IGIER.
The Program Committee invites submissions of papers, which can be either complete or work in progress. For more information, please visit the conference website (http://www.ewm2015.unibocconi.it/). Submissions can be made between July 15, 2015 and September 20, 2015 at http://editorialexpress.com/conference/EWM2015/. They can be directed to a specific Program Committee member.
Each person may submit only one paper and present only one paper. However, each person may be the co-author of several papers submitted to the conference. The submitting author must be a member of the Econometric Society or must join prior to submission. You may join the Society at http://www.econometricsociety.org.
Decisions on the program will be announced no later than October 25, 2015. Paper presenters must register for the meeting by November 8, 2015.
