Special Issue of the Journal of Applied Econometrics


We are happy to announce “A Conference on Cross-sectional Dependence in Panel Data Models”, to be held at Trinity College, University of Cambridge, on May 30th and 31st 2013.

The deadline for submission of papers to the "Conference on Cross-sectional Dependence in Panel Data Models" has now passed.

The aim of the conference is to bring together economists, econometricians, statisticians and social scientists who are interested in or are working on panel data issues. The program will consist of invited and contributed papers that cover a number of areas in panel data econometrics:

  • Panel cross dependence
  • Spatial econometrics
  • Short-T panels
  • Networks

Keynote speakers will include Jushan Bai, Badi H. Baltagi, Jerry Hausman and Lung-fei Lee. It is envisaged that a special issue in the Journal of Applied Econometrics will result from the conference.

The conference will be preceded by a one-day “Course on Panel Data Models” on May 29th 2013, at the Faculty of Economics, University of Cambridge. The event is intended towards postgraduate students who would like to update and enhance their research skills on panel data analysis. The event will include a series of technical presentations and product demonstrations that will provide attendees with new knowledge and skills that they can start applying immediately. The course is free of charge.

The conference is now full.
