With over 60 attendees from eight Midwestern universities, the conference provided an excellent platform for graduate students, post-docs, and 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 in general.
