Canadian Econometrics Study Group Annual Gathering

Leading Minds and Collaborative Achievements at the 2023 CESG Gathering

McMaster’s Economics Department hosted the 38th annual meeting of the Canadian Econometrics Study Group this past October organized by our very own Irene Botosaru, Chris Muris, Jeff Racine, and Youngki Shin!


Through October 27th – 29th, 100 of the leading econometricians gathered at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. The guest list featured some of the top US and Canadian scholars, as well as rising international Economists. The CESG organizes an annual meeting for interested and passionate researchers sharing the desire in advancing knowledge and skill in econometrics, a field of study that uses statistics to analyze economic data.


38th Annual Meeting


This year’s theme “Information and Inference in Panels and Time Series” featured two keynote speakers Anna Mikusheva from MIT and Jin Hahn from UCLA. The event also hosted 17 contributing speakers, and 17 discussants.


Throughout the weekend you could visit any of our 38 featured poster presentations by junior and senior faculty, in addition to Ph.D. students across North America. Quinlan Lee from the University of Toronto was awarded a cash prize for “Best Student Poster”. As well, guests enjoyed one of Hamilton renowned attractions, the Art Gallery of Hamilton, where they were able to enjoy the current exhibits during their visit.


We received overwhelming positive feedback from the attendees. A rewarding moment for our faculty, as this memorable gathering was hosted by us 20 years ago, in 2003, and we will be thrilled to host it again.
