EIEF will host the “4th Rome Junior Conference on Macroeconomics”, a.k.a. Pizzanomics.

The organizers are: Guillermo Ordoñez (University of Pennsylvania), Facundo Piguillem (EIEF), and Nicholas Trachter (FED, Richmond). Upcoming Program.
CSEF-EIEF-SITE Conference on Finance and Labor
August 28-30, 2015
The Centre for Studies in Economics and Finance (CSEF), the Einaudi Institute for Economics and Finance (EIEF) and the Stanford Institute for Theoretical Economics (SITE) invite paper submissions on the relationships between finance and labor. While we are open to all topics, preference will be given to submissions that deal with the interaction of financial and labor markets for a broad range of employees, as opposed to focusing on the more heavily-studied topic of executive compensation.
The conference aims to bring together researchers from financial economics and labor economics in order to discuss the topic from the point of view of both disciplines.
This conference is funded by two ERC Advanced Grants, respectively awarded to Claudio Michelacci for research on Estimation of General Equilibrium Labor Market Search Models (no. 293692-ESEMO) and to Marco Pagano for research on Finance and Labor (no. 295709-FINLAB).
Related conferences were organized by CSEF in 2013 (1st CSEF Conference on Finance and Labor) and SITE in 2014 (Session 9: Interrelations between Financial and Labor Markets).
The submission deadline is April 15, 2015. For details, please see the Call for papers.
