NBER Summer Institute
The NBER Summer Institute is a three-week gathering of applied economists that takes place in Cambridge, Massachusetts during July each year. All NBER research programs sponsor meetings during the Summer Institute. The Summer Institute typically includes a number of relatively informal meetings that bring together researchers working on a narrowly-focused topic. Each December, the NBER issues a call for papers in connection with the upcoming Summer Institute. (In recent years, more than 2400 economists have participated in the Summer Institute).
