2009 Oregon State University MAER-Net Colloquium
October 1-3, 2009

Dr. Randy Rosenberger earned our everlasting gratitude for his generous and meticulous hospitality at the 2009 MAER-Net Colloquium at Oregon State University. Judging by the smiles, fruitful discussions and laughter, the Oregon State University MAER-Net Colloquium was another big success.  Highlights include the sighting of a bobcat in front of the Boy Scout lodge where the banquet was held, and the beautiful sunset over the coastal range seen by all at dinner.  A special note of thanks goes to US EPA for their funding of the workshop.

sandbjergSandbjergLibAarhus University

In 2007, we had a very successful Colloquium at Sønderborg, Denmark, graciously hosted by Martin Paldam of Aarhus University.

High-quality papers stimulated lively and congenial discussions, both during the seminars and over drinks in the evening. Then, there were the beautiful surroundings, the 18th century Sandbjerg Manor next to the sea and the cognac in the library for evening discussions. Oh the leisure of the theory class!

MASTER-point Colloquium of Meta-Analysis in Economics

University of Amsterdam

Our series of international colloquia on meta-analysis in economics was inaugurated by the 2002 International Colloquium on Meta-Analysis in Economics in Amsterdam. The colloquium was generously hosted by the MASTER-point research group of the Department of Spatial Economics of VU University Amsterdam and organized by Raymond Florax, Angèle Janse and Peter Nijkamp. The MASTER-point colloquium set a very high standard of intellectual and collegial interactions, which solidified a core of international scholars interested in meta-analysis in economics.
