Original Announcement

The Society for Computational Economics is pleased to announce a contest for outstanding graduate student papers.  We are soliciting student papers with a strong computational component, in any branch of economics, finance, and decision making.


The recipient(s) of the student prize will receive a motivating stipend. The award of the prize is conditional on the presence of the prize recipients at the CEF2007 meeting. That is, at least one author must be registered and present in order to compete. The jury can decide not to attribute the prize if it considers that none of the submitted papers is of sufficient quality, or to attribute several prizes. At most US$3,600 will be given for 3 awards funded by the Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control.  In addition to the cash awards, winners will be reimbursed by the Society for Computational Economics for conference registration and banquet fees.  Winners will be announced and prizes will be presented at the conference banquet on Friday evening.


Applications to the student prize contest must include the full paper. This should be sent by e-mail in PDF format to the contest organizer:


Christophe Deissenberg:  deissenb@univ-aix.fr

The subject line of the e-mail should be CEF Student Contest. All authors of the paper must either be currently Ph.D. students or have received their Ph. D. after June 15, 2006.  The proof of Ph.D. student status for each author should be sent by email with the full paper or  faxed to: +(33) 4 42 93 09 68 with a cover page entitled: Student Contest Application - CEF2007.  All submissions will be acknowledged by email.  If you do not receive a message from Prof. Deissenberg within one week, please inquire!
