2018 MAER-Net Colloquium
hosted by DeLMAR and
Melbourne Australia October 4-5.
MAER-Net’s 2018 colloquium will be held in
Melbourne Australia at Deakin University’s downtown location, within minutes’ walk from the Southbank, the
Arts Districts, romantic laneways, and some of the world’s best restaurants,
outdoors cafés, and shopping—October 4-5, 2018. Meta-Analysis of Economics
Research Network, MAER-Net, is an international network of scholars who
specialize in or use meta-analysis to understand economics, business and the
social sciences. Deakin’s lab for the meta-analysis of research (DeLMAR) is a recently-established research center devoted to developing
meta-analysis methods, improving the practice of systematic reviews, applying
meta-analysis across the social sciences, health, and business and to raising
the credibility of research in these fields.
The purpose of the colloquium is to share ideas and methods among
meta-analysts and to introduce young scholars across the disciplines to this
rapidly growing field. There will only be a modest registration fee for the
cost of catering. Optional trips from Melbourne will be organized along the
Great Ocean Road, Yarra Valley wineries, or surrounding gold rush towns. Logistics
about travel and hotel accommodations will be provided at a later date, as will
the list of keynote speakers.
Please share our flyer with your students and colleagues.

June 1st, firstname.lastname@example.org.
They may be up to four pages long. For
