Register for the first meeting here

The workshop was originally meant to be taking place in Princeton in May 2020 with the aim of bringing together early-career researchers interested in quantitative work on the spatial economy.Due to COVID-19, we had to move the first iteration of the Quantitative Spatial Economics Junior Workshop online.
Every Friday between April 17 and June 5 at noon NYC time, we will meet on zoom to listen to one junior scholar working on quantitative spatial economics.

Format:
The seminars last 75 minutes:
60 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes of Q&A.

A moderator collects audience questions in the chat window. Users can upvote questions asked by others. Clarifying questions get asked by the moderator during the talk. After the talk the moderator selectively unmutes attendees to ask questions asked in the Q&A chat window.

Besides this, all attendees are muted throughout, and all interactions with the speaker are going through the chat with the moderator. Attendees engaging in abusive behavior or disturbing the seminar will be removed from the seminar.

Seminars will be recorded and available on youtube a few days later. Please note that you may be recorded if you activate your video or speak during the seminar.

Future in-person QSE Junior Workshop:
May 7 and 8, 2021 in Princeton, NJ.
