What is EconCon?

EconCon is a student run conference for Economics PhD students. It consists of two days of academic talks and discussions as well as social events. Its purpose is to give students an opportunity to present their work to a diverse and unfamiliar audience of students from other schools and receive feedback.

This year's conference will take place on August 11-12, 2016 at Princeton University. We hope the conference will be particularly appealing to those looking to go on the job market next year. Past presenters have gone on to tenure-track economics jobs at Harvard, Chicago, Yale, NYU, Michigan, Duke, Maryland, and many others. In previous years we received an average of over 140 submissions a year and the best 30 papers were selected for presentation by a panel of PhD students.

Each presentation will be given one hour and 15 minutes, including time for discussants. At each time slot we will have three simultaneous presentations, divided by sub-field.

The conference is being sponsored by the Economics Departments of Columbia University, NYU, Princeton University, U-Penn and Yale University. This year's conference is organized by Jessica Brown, Mingyu Chen, David Cho, and Andrew Langan.

Our submission period is now closed. Please join us for the conference! Registration is free of charge, and all economics graduate students are invited - even ones who will not be presenting. Please email us at to to let us know you are coming.

Meals will be provided during the conference, but due to limited funding, we are not able to pay for travel and accommodations. EconCon participants are encouraged to apply for travel compensation from their home institutions.
