Society for Computational Economics is pleased to announce its annual contest
for outstanding graduate student papers.
We are soliciting student papers
with a strong computational component, in any branch of economics, finance, and
decision making, for the award of the SCE 2013 Student Prize.
The recipient(s) of the student
prize will receive a cash award and will be invited to the conference, according
to the rules below:
1. A paper is eligible for the
prize if all its authors are either students at the time of the conference or
have completed their Ph.D. not earlier than November 1, 2012.
2. Up to three finalists will
be short-listed for the prize. The finalists will be invited to the
conference and the conference banquet, with the conference and banquet fees
waived. Their papers will be included in the conference program.
3. Finalists must present
their papers at the conference and attend the award ceremony. Not doing so
eliminates them ipso facto.
4. The student prize will be
awarded to zero, one, two or three finalists:
one winner: 1500 euros
two winners: 1250 euros each
three winners: 1000 euros each
5. The other finalists will
each receive a certificate honoring their work and 750 euros.
6. All finalists agree to have
their picture taken and used for publicity, if any, for future awards.
Mention must be made of the student prize in any publication directly related to
the paper they submitted.
