CEPR Virtual IO Seminar (VIOS)


Join us for the 2022 series:

CEPR Virtual IO Seminar (VIOS)

Every two weeks on Wednesdays
4PM (CET), 3PM (GMT), 11AM (EDT), 8AM (PDT)

To join the VIOS Mailing list to stay informed of future sessions and to receive the Zoom link for each session, please visit here.*

The CEPR Virtual IO Seminar (VIOS) was created to provide an 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.


Presentations last for about 45 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of formal discussion and then 10 minutes of Q&A. Papers and videos (when recorded) for previous talks are available here. The schedule can be imported using Google Calendar or this ics file.
