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.
