Call for Papers
First UTDT Workshop in International Economics and Finance
Argentina, August 17-19, 1999
The first UTDT
Workshop was held at UTDT from August 17-19, 1999. The workshop is
organized by the Center for International Economics at the
University of Maryland and the Department of Economics at
Universidad Torcuato Di Tella.
The Summer Camp
in International Economics and Finance is a unique event that brings
together top researchers, financiers, and policymakers from the
North and the South to discuss recent theoretical and empirical
advances in International Finance, with special emphasis on recent
crises. One key advantage of holding these Camps in the South is
that they facilitate the participation of policymakers that are
directly dealing with these problems.
It is expected that over the years
this type of intellectual exercise will help to identify key issues,
and induce influential researchers to devote their energies to these
issues. This type of policy-oriented research should eventually
result in economic policies in the north and the south that will
prevent these crises, induce macroeconomic stability, and foster
growth. Moreover, this workshop has proved successful in promoting
collaboration between researchers from the North and South.
committee formed by Guillermo Calvo, Enrique Mendoza, Andres
Neumeyer, and Carlos Vegh will select the papers. Theoretical and
empirical research relevant for understanding the macroeconomic
problems faced by Latin American countries are welcome. Please send
an email indicating your willingness to participate in the summer

Decisions will be posted on the summer camp’s web site,
