2023 Annual SEA conference, San Diego

Here's the 🔥 news!

The Spatial Econometrics Association is proud to announce its 2023 Annual Conference, which will take place in San Diego, USA from November 16th to 17th. This year’s conference will feature a plenary lecture from some of the top researchers and professors in the field. Check out NARCS conference section for further details. Take note also the abstracts’ deadline submission, scheduled for July 1st.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest advancements in spatial econometrics, network with other professionals, and gain insights into the future of the field. The conference will also provide a platform for attendees to share their own research and ideas with their peers.

The conference will be an excellent opportunity for professionals in the field to stay up-to-date on the latest developments in spatial econometrics. It will also be a great chance for those interested in entering the field to learn more about it and make valuable connections.

We hope that you can join us this November for what promises to be an exciting event! We look forward to seeing you there!

Check deadlines and call for papers.
