Hi

very nice blog

My paper got accepted in this conference. However, very likely it is my co-author who will present it since I am between jobs and dont have any funding.

I am really new in doing Spatial Econometrics so could you tell me if it is a good conference?

Dear Paulo,
I strongly recommend attending the conference. I've never been to World RSAI, just European and N American conferences, and it is always an amazing experience.
The quality of the papers is somewhat diverse, but it is great attend the talks of many of the authors that I usually cite.

Thanks for the advise but I am also living in the UK and, without funding, Brazil is a bit far from my budget.

believe me I would love to go to the conference. I presented the paper at LACEA but none of the audience understood what spatial econometrics is so comments were not very helpful.

I got one comment asking me to include time series correlation because I use data for 11 years. No matter that I have 24 cross sections.

by the way, what is an r-session?

Leonardo Monasterio said...

R-Session is a refereed session.

Do not worry: at RSAI conference people do now what spatial econometrics is...:-)
