The workshop is held virtually over Zoom. Please contact Workshop Administrator Sarah Griebel to be added to the listserv for weekly updates or for information on accessing Zoom meeting invites. Please refer to the weekly announcement for updates or time changes.

Beginning Autumn 2019, the workshop is organized jointly between Booth and the Chicago Economics department. The majority of the talks are given by internal speakers presenting works in progress, though some talks are reserved for external speakers. 

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