The Review of Economic Studies May Meetings have been held annually in May since 1989. Every year, in line with the Review’s tradition of encouraging the work of young economists, seven of the most promising graduating doctoral students in economics and finance in the world are selected to present their research to audiences in Europe. The meetings take place at the economics departments or institutes of three or four of major universities across Europe. Standard seminar presentations are given over two days to audiences invited by the local hosts and which include members of the journal’s editorial board. Previous speakers include Ester Duflo, Luigi Pistaferri, and many others.
The German leg of the conference will be held May 13-14, 2013, at Goethe University Frankfurt (other stops include Edinburgh and Budapest).
