The third annual conference of the International Association for Applied Econometrics will be held at the University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy), on June 22-25, 2016.
The main aims of IAAE are to advance the education of the public in the subject of econometrics and its applications to a variety of fields in economics, in particular, but not exclusively, by advancing and supporting research in that field, and disseminating the results of such useful research to the public.
The conference will bring together leading researchers in the field and will be a major forum where all aspects of econometrics (theory and practice) will be discussed and debated.
