Call for Papers

17-18 October 2019, Chicago

On October 17-18, 2019, the 2nd European Midwest Micro/Macro Conference (EM3C) will take place in Chicago. The conference will focus on the role of microdata for macroeconomics. Microdata for the purposes of EM3C is broadly defined and includes (but is not limited to) survey data, administrative data, experimental data, expectations data, etc. Work with new, previously unexplored microdata is especially welcome. The macro part of EM3C is also broadly defined and includes growth and business cycle topics, fiscal and monetary policy, consumption, investment, labor topics, price setting, sentiment and uncertainty research, etc. Participation has been confirmed by Adrien Auclert (Stanford University and CEPR), Corina Boar (New York University), Joe Vavra (The University of Chicago Booth School of Business) and Arlene Wong (Princeton University).

The conference is sponsored by the Fama-Miller center at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and is hosted at the Gleacher Center. EM3C is a joint initiative of economists working at the intersection of micro and macro in Europe and the US Midwest. Kurt Mitman (Stockholm University Institute for International Economic Studies and CEPR) is the lead organizer this year and Michael Weber (The University of Chicago Booth School of Business) the local organiser.

The deadline for submission of papers or extended abstracts is 30 April 2019. Preference is given to completed papers over abstracts. Submissions must be done electronically using the following email: with just EMMMC in the subject line (there is no need for further text in the body of the email). Authors of submitted papers will be notified before 15 June 2019.

There is no travel funding available, but up to 2 hotel nights (for overseas participants up to 3 hotel nights) will be covered.
