We invite submissions for the 2023 Annual Meeting of the Latin American and Caribbean Economic Association (LACEA) and the Latin American Meeting of the Econometric Society (LAMES), to be held at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia, from November 16 to 18, 2023.
This year's conference is particularly special, as we will also be celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the Banco de la República de Colombia. The conference program co-chairs are Marla Ripoll for LACEA, Andrés Carvajal for LAMES, and Ángela Fonseca Galvis as Conference chair. Confirmed keynote speakers are Francisco Ferreira (LSE), Adriana Kugler (World Bank), John List (Chicago), Rosa Matzkin (UCLA), Ariel Pakes (Harvard), Hélène Rey (London Business School), Marzena Rostek (UW-Madison) and José Scheinkman (Columbia). In addition, Bart Lipman (BU) will be delivering the Hotelling Lectures on November 15, 2023
Submissions are invited in the form of complete papers, and should be sent electronically by June 7, 2023, through the conference website. For each submission, at least one author must be a member of either LACEA or the Econometric Society. A person can submit only one paper, although they can be
co-authors in papers submitted by others.
We encourage submissions from both established researchers and young scholars, and we particularly welcome papers from researchers based in Latin America and the Caribbean.
