Danish Academic Economists in North America (DAEiNA)

Consumer finance and new technologies: research and practice
After much consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2020 DAEiNA meeting at Northwestern University. We made this decision with the safety and well-being of all conference participants in mind and in accordance with Northwestern University’s COVID-19 guidance.

The Board hopes to find a new date (possibly at a new location) for the conference in the 2020-2021 academic year. We will inform you as soon as we know more.

We want to thank everyone who signed up and hope that you will join us when we have a new confirmed date.

The 9th annual meeting of Danish Academic Economists in North America (DAEiNA) will be held on May 16, 2020 at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.

The meeting will consist of paper presentations, a brief organizational meeting, and networking opportunities.   We are delighted to announce that Allan Timmermann and Peter R. Hansen will be giving the keynote speeches.  The meeting will start with an informal reception and dinner on Friday May 15, followed by a full day of programming on Saturday May 16. 

To request a presentation slot, please submit a paper or abstract to daeina@daeina.net.  Presentation slots will be allocated on a rolling basis.  The final deadline for submission is March 15, 2020.   Participation will be open to anyone who has (i) a connection to Denmark and (ii) a past, present, or future interest in doing economic research in North America.  We encourage the presentation of preliminary work, particularly PhD students who are about to go on the academic job market.

Where to Stay

Kellogg has booked a group block of rooms at the Hyatt House in downtown Evanston. Please use the group code "G-EAMB" when booking your reservation to receive the reduced rate.

Getting Here & Parking

Major airlines fly into both O’Hare International Airport and Midway International Airport. O’Hare Airport is approximately 45 minutes from Kellogg and Midway Airport is approximately 60 minutes from Kellogg, but you may want to allow more time for traffic.

Taxi service from both airports can be arranged in advance of your visit for a reduced fare. Pre-arranged rides start at approximately $35 from O’Hare and $50 from Midway. For up-to-date fare information, please contact a taxi service directly. 
We are happy to provide a parking permit for visitors that drive to campus. Upon arriving, park at either the South Campus Parking Garage (1847 Campus Drive) or the North Campus Parking Garage (2311 North Campus Drive.) The North Campus Parking Garage is closer to the Global Hub. Before leaving campus make sure to ask the staff for a validated parking ticket to exit the garage.

Public Transportation

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) maintains an extensive system of elevated trains (also known as “the L”) and buses throughout Chicago and Evanston. The train stop closest to Kellogg is the Purple Line Foster stop on Church and Davis Streets. The 201 bus departs from the Howard St. terminal and stops on the corner of Foster and Sheridan.

Be advised, while inexpensive, taking the CTA from the airport can take up to 90 minutes and requires transferring trains.
