12th World Congress of the Econometric Society


An Update on the World Congress of the Econometric Society!


We are pleased to announce in partnership with the Econometric Society, the first ever virtual World Congress.


Over the past few months, Bocconi University and the Econometric Society have been working very hard to make the virtual version of the World Congress a success.


Of course, we were all very excited to welcome you here at Bocconi University and share with you our beautiful city of Milan, but COVID-19 and the uncertainty of summer travel forced us to reconsider. This was initially disappointing, most especially by all those involved who have worked tirelessly for many months to set the stage for a successful in-person Congress. However, we are now excited about this development and we expect the World Congress to be a transformative event for Bocconi University and the Econometric Society.


Although we can no longer welcome you in person, we are looking forward to welcoming you virtually to what we are certain will be an amazing event, and we are especially excited that this virtual meeting will now be open to those who would not have been able to join us in Milan in person due to a variety of constraints. 


Sincerely, Massimiliano Marcellino 


Chair of Local Organizing Committee, ESWC
