Event format: 
The Journal of Public Economic Theory (JPET) and the Journal of Mathematical Economics (JME) are planning a special workshop, to be held from March 13th to March 15th, 2020, hosted by New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD).

Keynote speakers

David Levine, Center for Advanced Study European University Institute and Washington University in St. Louis; 

Federico Echenique,  California Institute of Technology 

Submissions to the workshop and for publication, with a deadline of February 15th 2020 can be made either to JME or JPET (to their special issues). We will, however, begin accepting submissions on January 30th . Because papers may benefit from comments of participants at the workshop, submissions will be given a first review by the Scientific Committee for the Workshop and, if accepted by the Committee, final versions for standard referee review can be submitted after the workshop.  For further information on submissions please contact Myrna Wooders (, JPET) or Alex Citanna (, JME) and, for local organization, Diana Pangan (  Also, if you need a few more days or so, please contact either Alex (JME) or Myrna (JPET).

Authors of selected papers will be invited to participate in the workshop. Local expenses, including accommodation in the Marriott Courtyard Hotel (downtown)  will be covered by the workshop. A number of special events are planned. A registration fee of $250 will be charged to cover special events.

For your information, JME is now under the Editorship of Andres Carvajal (University of California, Santa Barbara).  Submissions to the JME track can be made on the Elsevier Journal of Mathematical Economics.

The current active Editors of JPET are Rabah Amir, Helmuth Cremer and Myrna Wooders.  Under their leadership the impact factor of the journal has been steadily increasing and is now slightly over 1, putting it in the league of such top field journals as Games and Economic Behavior. Besides theoretical research, JPET is also now established as an outlet for theory-based experimental research (see the NYUAD special issue, for example, and JPET Early View, which also has a number of experimental economics papers).

NYU Abu Dhabi has both an elite research profile and a multi-cultural student body with more than one hundred nationalities represented on campus. Its Economics group is currently ranked 5th in Asia (RePec ranking).

The campus is located on Saadiyat Island, a 5 minute drive from the turquoise-blue waters of Saadiyat beach, 7 minutes from the Louvre Abu Dhabi museum, 10 minutes from the city cen- ter of Abu Dhabi, an hour from (futuristic) Dubai, and an hour from the Empty Quarter -- the largest continuous sand desert in the world.

Abu Dhabi is a dynamic, modern and multi-cultural city. Mid-March is a great time to visit, with average temperatures of 28/19 degrees Celsius (82/66 Fahrenheit). The Louvre museum, with its stunning architecture, emphasizes the similarities between cultures over time and across space. There are beautiful venues each serving excellent food and adult beverages. The Grand Mosque is incredible and a trip there is a must. Side trips to the desert are highly recommended.
