The Research Department runs several seminar series that cover a range of topics in economics and finance. Economists from around the world are invited to participate. Seminars are open to academic researchers associated with local universities and research institutions. Researchers who wish to attend a seminar must register (via an email to Kanda Cummings) at least 48 hours in advance. PA Forums are not open to the public and are by invitation only. All attendees must show photo ID and go through security screening.
The goals of seminars should be for participants to learn about new research and for presenters to gain constructive feedback. A lively discussion is an important part of any seminar series and is strongly encouraged. However, to promote a positive environment in the department, it is important that the discussion be an inclusive experience for all. To that end, please be mindful of our seminar protocols.
