Announcing New Econometric Society Prizes and Lectures Series
We are pleased to announce the addition of three new prizes and three new lectures series sponsored by the Econometric Society.
The three new prizes are the Arrow Prize, the Haavelmo Prize, and the Sonnenschein Service Prize. The three added lectures series are the Blackwell-Robinson Omnibus Lectures (for interdisciplinary/cross-field research), the Lewis-Ostrom Lectures in Applied Economics, and the Lucas-Modigliani Lectures in Macroeconomics and Finance.
The first two new prizes parallel the Frisch Medal. First awarded in 1978, the Frisch Medal is presented every other year for the best applied economics paper in Econometrica in the previous four years.
The Arrow Prize will be given to the best theory paper in Econometrica in the past four years, while the Haavelmo Prize will be awarded to the best econometrics paper in Econometrica over that period. The Frisch Medal, Arrow Prize, and Haavelmo Prize will be given in even-numbered years, with the latter two being awarded for the first time in 2024.
The third new award, the Sonnenschein Service Prize, will be given in recognition of extraordinary service to the Econometric Society or the profession at large. It will be awarded every year, starting in 2024, with the recipient chosen by the President of the Society and the chairs of the six Regional Standing Committees.

Announcing the First Conference in a New Interdisciplinary Series: The 2024 ESIF Economics and AI+ML Meeting
The 2024 ESIF Economics and AI+ML Meeting
August 13 - 14, 2024,

The Econometric Society is pleased to announce an interdisciplinary conference on Economics and AI+ML, the first in a series of Econometric Society Interdisciplinary Frontiers (ESIF) conferences.
The purpose of the Economics and AI+ML Meeting, which will be held at Cornell University, in Ithaca NY (USA) on August 13-14, 2024, is to foster interaction of ideas and methodologies from the areas of Computer Science and Economics (broadly defined, but with emphasis on AI and ML). The conference will feature keynote lectures and parallel sessions, bringing together scholars from both fields.
The ESIF series more broadly will promote interdisciplinary approaches to important economic issues and global challenges, with each conference hosted or co-hosted by various regions of the Econometric Society. The 2024 ESIF Economics and AI+ML Meeting is hosted by the North America region.

Changes in Publication of Econometric Society Journals
Starting in 2024, Econometrica, Quantitative Economics, and Theoretical Economics, will be (with exceptions noted below) online only. Online-only subscriptions now make up 90% of all Society memberships and it is not cost effective or environmentally desirable to retain print editions.
There are two exceptions to this policy. First, some library subscriptions to Econometrica will continue to include print volumes.
Second, there will be a "Print on Demand" option to purchase a printed volume of Econometrica at an extra charge. Members will have the option of making this purchase at a significant discount relative to the usual price of this option. More details will be available on our website later.
Econometrica will continue to be available to members on our website and in the Wiley Online Library and QE and TE will continue to be open access journals with free availability through our website as well as in the Wiley Online Library.

Congratulations to Claudia Goldin, Winner of the 2023 Nobel Prize in Economics
The Econometric Society congratulates Claudia Goldin, the Henry Lee Professor of Economics at Harvard University, elected Fellow of the Econometric Society in 1991, for being awarded the 2023 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. She received the prize “for having advanced our understanding of women’s labour market outcomes.” The Nobel committee notes that Claudia Goldin "provided the first comprehensive account of women’s earnings and labour market participation through the centuries. Her research reveals the causes of change, as well as the main sources of the remaining gender gap." https://www.nobelprize.org/prizes/economic-sciences/2023/press-release/
