Upcoming Conferences

"A Conference honoring the contributions of Charles Plosser to Economics"

April 20-21, 2018

The Carnegie-Rochester-NYU Conference on Public Policy is now soliciting papers for the 91st meeting, a conference  "Honoring The Contributions of Charles Plosser to Economics” The conference will be held at The University of Rochester on April 20-21, 2018. The papers and comments are slated for publication in the January 2019 issue of the Journal of Monetary Economics.

The editors invite detailed abstracts of no more than two pages describing the proposed research paper. (If a preliminary version of the paper is available, authors may include it with their abstract.) Proposals should be submitted electronically to Sue North, Editorial Assistant for the Journal of Monetary Economics, at north@simon.rochester.edu, no later than October 31, 2017.

Charles Plosser has been involved in the Carnegie-Rochester-NYU conference series for most of his distinguished career. He served as an editor and convener of the CRNYU series for nearly two decades. Charles’ research embodies the CRNYU ideal of path-breaking research at the frontier of economics brought to bear on important issues of public policy. His own career path reflects these values. He served as a faculty member at Stanford University and The University of Rochester. He was Dean of The Simon School of Business at The University of Rochester, and President and CEO of The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia.
Charles has made many contributions to Economics but most notably in the areas of time series econometrics, business cycle theory, and monetary theory and policy. The editors invite proposals in these three general areas of research but will consider all submissions connected to Charles’ research contributions.
The editors, in collaboration with the Carnegie-Rochester-NYU Advisory Board, will make the final selection of papers to be included in the Conference. Authors will be notified by Monday, December 1, 2017 if their paper has been selected. Authors will receive an honorarium of $2500 and be expected to present their paper at the Conference. The papers should represent original research not presented or published elsewhere. Since the papers are intended for publication, authors will not be able to publish or reprint the work elsewhere without the permission of the editors and publisher. Please note that the editors will contact authors only if their paper is accepted.
