EWMES 2021

The Econometric Society: An international Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory in its Relation to Statistics and Mathematics

For over 50 years, the European Winter Meetings of the Econometric Society have fostered interaction among young scholars and a group of more senior academics representing different regions and fields of specialisation.

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 the light of continuing uncertainty over the COVID situation, the Meeting will be held virtually and hosted by the University of Barcelona School of Economics. There are also new dates for the Meeting which will now take place from December 13-15, 2021. These earlier dates will allow job market candidates to present at the Meeting and to attend virtual interviews at the European Job Market for Economists.

The Econometric Society is now accepting papers for the 2021 European Winter Meeting of the Econometric Society. The meeting is primarily targeted at PhD students and Postdoctoral Researchers.

The submission process is now open. Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through the Conference Maker website at https://editorialexpress.com/conference/EWMES21.

When submitting your paper, please choose from the drop-down menu the appropriate programme committee area associated with your paper topic.

Each person may submit and present only one paper; however, each person is allowed to be a co-author of several papers submitted to the conference. At least one of the authors must be a member of the Econometric Society. Authors may join the Society.

The deadline for paper submissions is 19 September 2021. Decisions will be made by 20 October 2021 (instead of 15 October 2021).
