Brown Bag Lunch

Mes amis, amici, amigos and friends,
As the fall semester is starting, it seems about time to get somewhat organized for the BBL and the technical seminar.
The Brown Bag Lunch (BBL) is a weekly informal seminar where students can present their work and ideas in progress to other students and then get good and necessary feedback to enhance their papers. Bring your lunch! Students for the University of Geneva are also invited to participate and to present their research.
Jointly with the BBL, we organize the technical workshop. As econometrics and modelling is getting more and more complicated, we also organize technical workshops where students present their newly acquired skills to spill them over the freeriding students. For example, an introduction to statistical packages or on counterfactual VAR analysis in matlab!
Our choice of schedule would be on Wednesdays at 12h15 in Rigot. Additional spots will be added if necessary.
The first presentation date will be Oct.1st.
There are 12 spots for this semester. If you are interested in presenting please send an email ASAP saying whether you want to present classic BBL stuff or a technical workshop and also let me know your preference for the date (a Wednesday!).
We really encourage all of you to present. Even if it is just the idea and no paper yet it will help you in your research and let the others know which research is being done at the graduateinstitute. GENEVA!
