on the web

by Agnieszka Rusinowska, Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne, CNRS – Université Paris 1

The next CTN workshop (CTN17) will be held in Paris, on February 3-4, 2012.

The guest speakers will be Franklin ALLEN (University of Pennsylvania), Rajiv VOHRA (Brown University), and Yves ZENOU (Stockholm University). >> more
