Call for Papers
Fourth UTDT Workshop in International Economics and Finance
Argentina, August 20-23, 2001
The fourth UTDT Workshop in
International Economics and Finance will be held at Universidad T.
Di Tella in Buenos Aires during the week August 20-23, 2001. This
Workshop is the Summer Edition of the Camps in International
Economics and Finance sponsored by LACEA and is organized by the
Center for International Economics at the University of Maryland and
the Department of Economics at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella.
The workshop 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 Economics and Finance. The goal of these
meetings is to gain a better understanding of the macroeconomic
problems faced by Latin American countries and to encourage research
on the subject. The program's format will be similar to that of our
past meetings. Three days will be devoted to the discussion of
recent papers in the field, and one to a conference open to the
public. The morning of each brainstorming day will be devoted to the
presentation of three papers, while the afternoons will be free for
informal interactions, and playing around Buenos Aires. Evenings are
for wining, dining and Tango. If you are a skier, you can ski the
Andes during the weekend.
A program committee formed by
Guillermo Calvo, Enrique Mendoza, Andrés Neumeyer, and Carlos Vegh
will select the papers in the brain storming session. We welcome
theoretical and empirical research relevant for understanding the
macroeconomic problems faced by Latin American countries. The
conference open to the public will include policy makers as well as
The invitation does not require
presenting a paper. Actually, we anticipate that there will be more
participants than the nine papers that we will be able to
accommodate during the brainstorming sessions. Thus, the only
requirement is your willingness to be an active participant during
those three days.
For academic participants, we expect
to be able to offer hotel accommodations and a round-trip economy
class (cheapest) airfare. We urge you to find other sources of funds
to cover transportation costs, as we are running this on a limited
budget. Application forms for financial support will be posted in
the web shortly.
Please, send us an email indicating
your willingness to participate in the summer camp to firstname.lastname@example.org
by March 12, 2001. If you would like to present a paper, send
also a title, an abstract, and a paper (rough preliminary drafts are
acceptable). Papers must be
PDF format. Decisions will be posted in the summer camp's web site,
by April 1st, 2001.
The last camps in Santiago and Buenos
Aires were a success, and we have every reason to believe that the
next Summer Camp will not disappoint us.
With our best wishes,
