CANCELLED: Summer School of the Econometric Society, Hong Kong

Jul 27 - 31, 2020

Summer School of Econometric Society in Hong Kong (2020)
University of Hong Kong

Because of uncertainty about when the coronavirus will be defeated, we regretfully concluded that we should cancel the Summer School of Econometric Society in Hong Kong (2020).  We were excited about having the summer school hosted by the Hong Kong University.  We were overwhelmed by the cooperation and goodwill of the local organizer, Wing Suen, and the Faculty of Economics and Business of Hong Kong University.   We thank the lecturers (Sylvain Chassang, Herve Moulin and Marzena J. Rostek) who agreed to spend time with students.   We are sure that we will return to Hong Kong soon in the future.
