Econometrics and Statistics Colloquium

IN CONTINUED ACCORDANCE WITH UNIVERSITY GUIDANCE, AND OUT OF CONCERN FOR OUR COMMUNITY AND GUEST SPEAKERS, WE WILL BE HOSTING OUR WINTER 2021 SPEAKER SERIES VIRTUALLY.

The health and well-being of the UChicago community and our guests is our top priority, and we appreciate your understanding as we take steps to minimize the risk to the University community. We will post updated information to this page as it becomes available. Please note that the Zoom Links for each week will be sent out via the listerv. See below for further information.

 

Organizer

Please contact Megan Jennings Quist, workshop administrator, to be added to the listserv for weekly updates.

When possible, links to the workshop papers are posted to this page for printing. Occasionally, speakers opt not to circulate their papers. Therefore, the link will be unavailable.
