Welcome Reception | June 28, 2018

The welcome reception takes place at the School of Business and Economics of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin at Spandauer Str. 1 on Thursday, June 28, 2018 from 18:00-21:00.

Dinner Cruise | June 29, 2018

We have organized a dinner cruise for Friday, June 29, 2018. If you want to bring guests along, this is possible for a fee of US$ 75 and you can add this when registering for the conference (depending on availability this may also be possible later). You would help us extremely, however, if you already inform us as soon as possible if you intend to bring guests to the dinner cruise because if there is large demand we may try to hire an additional boat and this is more likely to work the earlier we know. Please simply send an email to

The conference dinner is financially supported by Elsevier and
the European Economic Review.

Important announcement

And now an important announcement (maybe less important for some US participants). If you have noticed that the meeting runs in parallel to the FIFA World Cup, please be assured that we checked the schedule and that there will be no game on Friday (and this is why the conference dinner is on Friday, not on Saturday). We are also exploring opportunities to get a screen up in the courtyard for the welcome reception (last games of the group phase) and on Saturday (first games in the knock-out phase).
