What is the EIPC?
At the Econometric Institute PhD Conference (EIPC) all second-to-last year PhD students of the Econometric Institute present their current research project to members of the Econometric Institute. There are multiple goals that we wish to achieve with this conference. In random order they are:
- To give an overview of the work that is carried out by the PhD students at the Econometric Institute.
- For PhD students to benefit from feedback on their work from staff members or fellow PhD students. More concretely, for each presentation one of the staff members of the EI is asked to act as a discussant. The role of the discussant is to read the working paper underlying the presentation and give feedback on this work. Fellow PhD students can contribute by asking questions during or after the presentation.
- To have a nice social event and get acquainted with fellow EI members at the lunch before the conference or the drinks after the conference
The conference will be held in the afternoon, starting with a lunch and ending with some drinks.
The organization of the presentations is as follows. Each presenter has 15 minutes to present the paper. After this a discussant will review the paper and/or asks some questions. The discussant will be a member of the Econometric Institute staff who is not currently involved in the project. The discussant has 10 minutes to give feedback on your work. In the remaining 5 minutes, the audience can ask questions.
