should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
(with the words ``SoFiE Summer School 2019’’ in the subject box). The applications should include a full CV and a motivation letter of half a page explaining why attending this course would be helpful to the applicant’s research. The application deadline is April 21, 2019. Decisions will be emailed by mid-May.
Paper presentations: Applicants are strongly encouraged to present some of their own work during the afternoon sessions. For this, they are encouraged to include a paper or a long abstract along with the summer school application. All topics in financial econometrics are acceptable, but with some preference given to topics that are in line with the theme of the summer school. Papers will be selected by the organizing committee.
Fee for attending the school: $200 for academics and $750 for non-academics. Confirmation of admission of selected applicants is conditional on receipt of the fee payment in due time (details to be provided in the admission email).
All accepted participants are expected to be members of the Society for Financial Econometrics or to join before their place is confirmed. See http://sofie.stern.nyu.edu/membership on how to join the society (where a student membership option is available).
Travel and accommodation costs: Attendees are responsible for their own travel and accommodation costs. A list of suitable local hotels will be provided. During the teaching schedule (Monday-Friday), lunch, coffee and tea will be provided free of charge. A free social event will be organized during the week after teaching on one day where students and faculty can meet informally. Evening meals will not be organized and will be at the participants’ own expense.
