Dear Korean Econometricians,
We are organizing an econometrics camp over the summer 2013, scheduled on July 14-15, 2013. The purpose of the camp is mainly to provide a platform to build up a working network among Korean econometricians, and to help Korean econometricians to learn about recent developments on some selected subjects in econometrics. We wish that all Korean econometricians working inside and outside Korea would consider participating. In particular, the camp will include mentoring sessions, so it would be particularly helpful for junior Korean econometricians to attend.
The main theme of the camp is “Nonparametric Inference on Econometric Models”. The detailed plan for the camp is as follows:
Day 1: Yoon-Jae Whang will deliver a key note speech, which will set the theme and tone of the camp, in a lecture format. The key note speech will be followed by four presentations of most important papers on the topic by invited participants.
Day 2: A few sessions for the presentations of contributed papers will take place. At least one of these sessions will be devoted to mentoring juniors by some established seniors. A senior attendant will be assigned to each of the papers contributed in the session(s) by junior participants, and the papers will be presented by the assigned seniors with subsequent discussions made by the contributing junior authors.
All Korean econometricians who are interested in attending the camp should let us know with a short description of how they may contribute to, or how they may benefit from, the camp. In particular, Korean econometricians residing outside Korea should contact Donggyu Sul (firstname.lastname@example.org) by May 25.
We will provide meals during the camp and hotels for the night of July 14 to all the accepted attendants. Moreover, we are planning to provide some travel expenses to those who will make significant services to the camp.
KAEA will provide limited travel expenses to the participating junior econometricians. Please contact Donggyu Sul by May 30 if you need financial support from KAEA.
The exact venue and other details of the camp will be notified later.
All the best,
Changsik Kim, Jin Lee, Joon Park, Donggyu Sul, Yoon-Jae Wang
