Econometrics Summer Camp 2015

Dear Korean Econometricians,

We are organizing the 2015 Econometrics Summer Camp, scheduled for June 6-7, 2015. We hope that the camp may serve as a platform to build up a network to work and learn together on recent developments in econometrics. We wish that all Korean econometricians working in or out of Korea could consider participating.

Like last year, the first day of the camp will be devoted to key note speeches, and the second day to a few sessions for contributed papers. (We will give further details on the speakers and themes as soon as they get in shape.)

Please contact Professor Sangsoo Park ( if you would like to participate, and/or send him a paper, to be considered for presentation in a contributed session, by April 30, 2015. We consider both theoretical and applied econometrics papers.

KAEA will kindly provide accommodation for one night. Again, we will provide further details on the camp later. We will look forward to hearing from you.

All the best,

Sang-Soo Park, Kyungchul Song, and Donggyu Sul

Obituary (Bong Soo Lee)

It is with heavy heart that I must convey a very sad and shocking news that Professor Bong Soo Lee, our beloved friend and mentor, who contributed greatly to KAEA and general economics and finance communities, passed away yesterday.  We do not yet fully know the circumstance of his passing, and would like to hear from anybody who does.

Professor Lee’s academic career spans almost 30 years, preceded by his 7 year stint at the Korean government (rising to the rank of  deputy director at the ministry of finance).  After receiving Ph.D. in economics from University of Minnesota in 1986, he has served as professor for Iowa State, Minnesota (Carlson School of Business), University of Houston, Dean of KAIST, and until now Patty Hill Smith Eminent Scholar Chair Professor in Finance at the Florida State University.  His CV shows a very long and illustrious accomplishments as a scholar, with more than 70 publications.
