System Applied Microeconomics Conference
May 13–June 18, 2020
Hosted by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta
The Federal Reserve System Committee on Applied Microeconomics was formed in 2001 and held its inaugural meeting at the San Francisco Fed. The committee's purpose is to provide a structure in which Federal Reserve applied microeconomists can interact and allow their individual activities to enhance each other's work. An annual research conference allows economists to share their current research and to learn about their microeconomic System colleagues' research. Previous conference agendas are available.
If you have any question, please contact Lisa Piggott, Research Department, Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to Applied Micro 2020: The Virtual Edition!
Agenda and registration links below.
On each date two papers will be presented (from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.). Each presenter will have 30 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. There are no assigned discussants.
The first paper and discussion will be followed by a five-minute break, with the second presentation starting about 2:50 p.m.
At 3:35 p.m., the floor will be open for anyone to bring up issues, questions, or thoughts related to the COVID-19 pandemic. This period will allow people to seek feedback on data they are looking for or suggest collaboration on topics of common interest.
Attendees will be muted during the presentations but will be able to use Zoom’s chat option. If coauthors of presenters are in the audience, we request that they answer clarifying questions during the presentation via the chat window.
