CALL FOR PAPERS: Information and Econometrics of Networks, 30-31 March 2012, USA

Washington DC (U.S.A.)

Conference on Information and Econometrics of Networks Washington, DC, USA, March 30-31, 2012

The Info-Metrics Institute is happy to announce a call for papers for a conference in Washington, 
DC on March 30-31, 2012. The two-day conference is supported by the Journal of Applied Econometrics
and will be organized jointly by Professors Amos Golan of American University and Essie Maasoumi 
of Emory University.  Social and economic networks are everywhere: from Facebook to the more 
complex global financial network or to networks connecting economic agents or to other complex 
and dynamic economic networks. The study of these networks is crucial for both academics and policy
makers and presents a host of new theoretical and econometric challenges.  This conference will 
concentrate on studying the information and econometrics of networks. The conference organizers 
encourage submissions of papers on any topic within this overall theme with a particular emphasis 
on the following areas: spatial econometrics, information in networks, factor dependence, empirical
analysis of social and economic/financial networks, complex networks, and info-metrics and networks.

Those wishing to present a paper at the conference should submit electronically a completed version
or an extended abstract by September 30, 2011 to the address given below:

e-mail: (please write ?Network Submission? in the subject line)

Decisions regarding acceptance will be made by December 31, 2011. More detailed information 
concerning the conference (registration, accommodation, financial support) is available at:
