Athens1

Athens Greece (Sept 11-13)

The Department of Economics of the University of Athens will host the 2014 MAER-Net Colloquium September 11-13 at the University of Athens Museum, 100m from the Acropolis!  (Google Map: 5 Tholou Athens Greece)  http://www.athens-greece.us/athens-museums/athens-university-museum/

Dr. John Ioannidis, “one of the most influential scientists alive” (Atlantic, Oct 4, 2010), and founding member, Prof. Martin Paldam, will give keynote addresses. We expect to have a broad array of meta-analysts from economics and related fields presenting and attending. Presenters will include leading meta-analysts from Europe, Australasia and North America.

Please see the Colloquium website for more information.  Two-page abstracts of presentation proposals are due by June 1 metaanalysis2014@gmail.com  .  Because this will be a popular colloquium, you might be wise to send in your abstract proposal early.

At this point, no further information about hotels has been prepared.  However, sites like hotels.com can easily find accommodations within walking distance to the University of Athens Museum. 

We are looking forward to seeing all of our olds friends and meeting many new ones in Athens!

2013 Greenwich Colloquium Huge Success!

greenwich13-1

In the tradition of Sir Christopher Wren and his Royal Society, the colloquium engendered congenial discussions on important questions of scientific methods and practice with applications to the practical affairs of man.  Then there was the perfect weather (yes, in the UK), the beautiful  buildings, the well-organized meetings, and the fun, informative and inspiring sessions!  All happening at an important World Heritage Site. . . Greenwich4 Priceless!

MAER-Net has incurred a large debt to Professor Mehmet Ugur and the University of Greenwich's conference team.  I cannot think how we can ever repay such a large debt, but then neither can Greece!  So let's all just meet next year in Athens Sept 11-14, 2014 to retire old debts and to make new ones.  Thanks also to all of the presenters and participants who made this a very rewarding and special colloquium.  It is only through the goodwill and brilliance of our members that keeps MAER-Net and meta-regression analysis advancing.  Links to the papers and program can be found here.  We are looking forward to seeing you in Athens this year!
