The Southeastern Micro Labor Workshop brings together PhD micro labor economists from Southeastern institutions to foster an active exchange and discussion.

The conference will be hosted by Ian Schmutte. It will start midday March 30 and end midafternoon March 31. The University of Georgia will provide some meals, but participants are responsible for remaining travel expenses. A block of discounted hotel rooms is available for workshop guests. Most attendees will only need to stay overnight March 30 to participate in the full workshop.

Contact Ian Schmutte, Julie Hotchkiss, or Melinda Pitts with any questions. We hope to see you in Athens.

Please sign up if you would like to receive information about the workshop.

Parking is unfortunately at a premium in this part of campus and can be hard to find, particularly in the middle of the day. If you are staying in the SpringHill Suites or one of the downtown hotels, plan to park there and walk or take a campus bus to our building (The Terry College of Business). If you need to park on campus, we may be able to provide an access code for the Hull Street Parking deck. Please mention that you'll need a code during registration.
