Welcome to the Waterloo Economics PhD Conference!
The purpose of the conference is to encourage networking among current students and future UW alumni and to provide them with an opportunity to present their research and to share advice and information on navigating a PhD in Economics. This is also an opportunity for our faculty to catch up with their former students on their progress in their PhD program. The conference will take place on Friday May 25th from 9:45am to 6:00pm in DC 1301 and DC 1304.
For any questions, please contact Professor Kate Rybczynski at firstname.lastname@example.org or any members of the alumni relations committee organizing the event.
