WELCOME to Montréal / BIENVENUE à Montréal
Welcome Message from the Organizing Committee
On behalf of IAAE Congress Organizing Committee we would like to invite you to the 5th IAAE Annual Conference. Following the success of the past four Annual Conferences, our Fifth Annual Conference will be locally organized by the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) with collaboration from the Université de Montréal (UdeM), and held at UQAM, Montréal, June 26-29, 2018.
We are expecting participants from around the world, North & South America, Europe & Asia! The aim of IAAE is to advance the education of the public in the subject of econometrics and its applications to a variety of fields in economics, in particular but not exclusively, by advancing and supporting research in that field, and disseminating the results of such useful research to the public. The conference will bring together leading researchers in the field and will be a major forum where all aspects of econometrics (theory and practice) will be discussed and debated.
The conference will be held at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), located in the Latin Quarter in downtown Montréal. Hotels are within easy walking distance of the university and the hotels offer every price point for accommodation. For those wishing to venture further afield Montréal has a modern public transit system and easy access by air, road and rail with the major tourist destinations of eastern North America.
Montréal is one of the oldest cities in North America. It offers a charming combination of old world architecture and modern technology set in the context of a dynamic French-English duality that is the envy of cities around the world.
Montréal is also recognized as a gastronomic destination with more restaurants per square kilometer than any other city in North America and a significant number of Michelin listed establishments; in addition, it has a large number of museums and galleries and a very vibrant visual art scene.
On behalf of the local organizing committee we look forward to welcoming you to Montréal. Bienvenue à Montréal.
