The IPDC 2017continues on a highly successful conference of the “International Association of Applied Econometrics”, held at Grand Hotel Palace in Thessaloniki during June 2015, under the auspices of the City of Thessaloniki.
Specifically, more than 450 economists and researchers, coming from leading academic institutions, such as the University of Chicago, the University of Cambridge, MIT, Yale and many others,visited Thessaloniki to exchange views on a range of important issues in economics(see www.iaae2015.org).
Major contributors to the cultural events that took place during the conference were the “Pontian Dancing Association of Kordelio”, the choir “Idimelon” under the direction of Mr. Ioannis Tsamis, and finally the actors AchilleasDemetriades and Alexia Xigala, who starred the excellent theatrical Greek tragedy “Antigone”by Sophocles.
Following the conference, participants took part in an organized excursion to Macedonian Tombs at Vergina and the School of Aristotle in Naoussa, where they learned about the rich Greek heritage of Macedonia.
As part of the continuing effortsto bring to Greece major and internationally prestigious conferences in economics, Thessaloniki will also host the“International Symposium on Forecasting”in 2019, in collaboration of the University of Macedonia and the Monash Business School.
In this way the city of Thessaloniki is developing into a center and a forum of economics and econometrics worldwide.
