As part of the conference package, we offer for young researchers* and PhD students several opportunities

  1. Special Breakfast Session: “Meet the Professors

    Young researchers and PhD students will have the unique opportunity to have a breakfast meeting with well-known scientists participating in the conference. This takes the form of a tutorial activity where young researchers can talk face-to-face over breakfast on their research with international scholars. These ‘Meet the Professors’ breakfast meetings will take place on Thursday and Friday morning May 18-19 2017, from 07:45-8:45 a.m. Participation will take place on a first-come, first-serve basis. More information will follow in due course.
  1. Special session “Meet the editors”Young researchers and PhD students will have the opportunity to participate at workshop(s) with all the journal editors who will be attending the Conference. This event should provide valuable insights into the publishing process and writing for top journal submissions. More information will follow in due course.
  1. Special session “PhD workshop”PhD students will also have an opportunity to participate at the PhD Workshop. The objective of the PhD workshop is to give PhD students the opportunity to present their research in progress in a conference setting and to get feedback from peers and senior economists. The peers and senior economists will provide guidance on how to successfully carry out research in the economics domain. Thus, this is an exceptional opportunity to understand what people are working on in more detail, build up networks and improve presentation skills.
