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 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 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 meeting was held at IGIER-Università Bocconi in Milan, Italy, on December 15-16, 2015.
We can now confirm that the third meeting will be held at the University of Edinburgh, on December 10-11, 2016. The plenary speakers are George-Marios Angeletos (MIT) and Jean-Marc Robin (Sciences Po). The programme chair is Kjetil Storesletten (University of Oslo).
