CEPR Virtual IO Seminar (VIOS)

The CEPR Virtual IO Seminar (VIOS) provides a short-run alternative to IO seminars cancelled due to travel restrictions brought on by the Coronavirus. Our long-run goal, however, is to turn it into a permanent platform for sharing the benefits of regular IO seminars. Seminars will be balanced between both theoretical and empirical approaches to IO.

Papers and videos (when recorded) for previous talks are available here. The schedule can be imported using Google Calendar or this ics file
