» Brown Bag Workshops

Working on exciting research and looking for an audience? Stuck on a problem and needing input? Look no further. The Economic Science Institute hosts a weekly brown-bag luncheon and paper workshop for faculty and students in the Argyros School of Business and Economics and the Schmid College of Science and Technology in Wilkinson Hall Room 116. Present your current research in an informal environment, and get feedback on your work.

Each workshop begins at 11:50 a.m. and lasts 1 hour. Participants are invited to bring a brown-bag lunch to eat as they ask questions and offer suggestions to our presenters.

If you would like to present your work, send an email to Alex Alekseev with dates on which you'd be willing to speak, along with a brief summary of your research. We ask presenters to submit projects with (at minimum) preliminary results; more complete papers are always welcome. Obviously, we don't expect to fill the list all at once, so each week in our reminder email we will send out a list of available dates and accept new submissions. We look forward to hearing about your work!
