Midwest Graduate Student Conference on Regional and Applied Economics
The Department of Agricultural, Environmental and Development Economics (AEDE) at The Ohio State University is organizing the Midwest Graduate Student Conference on Regional and Applied Economics (CRAE), which will be held on the campus of Ohio State on Friday and Saturday, April 5 and 6, 2013.
CRAE, which is a continuation of a series of conferences held by Midwestern universities, was previously held at Purdue University and the University of Illinois – Urbana Champaign under the titles Regional, Population, Health, & Environmental Economics Midwest Graduate Student Summit (RPHE) and Space, Health and Population Economics (SHaPE). This year is the 6th annual gathering.
The conference provides an excellent platform for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers from a variety of Midwestern universities to gather and share ideas, seek and provide feedback, and foster collaboration in the fields of regional studies, economic geography, urban economics, and applied economics.
Registration is currently in progress and those participants that register by March 29, 2013 will pay a reduced registration fee of $35.00. All registrations made after this date will be subject to a $40.00 fee.
