Early cognitive and non-cognitive development of bilingual children. The keynote speaker Prof. Jesús Crespo Cuaresma (WU Wien) talked about Bayesian model averaging and brought an example involving a compilation of David Bowie music from the 1970s.

Feedback from 2015 meeting participants:

  • I would recommend this conference to any young economist who would like to present their work as it provided a comfortable and engaged platform to discuss research and receive invaluable feedback.
  • The organization was extremely professional and the atmosphere allowed the participants to exchange ideas efficiently. The sessions were very well planned - it was clear that the organizers had considered the subject matter carefully before scheduling the order of the presentations. All in all, I was very happy with the event and I hope that it will return next year.
  • Very impressive how a first-time event could attract so many good presentations and participants from so many different countries!
  • Very good organization, and interesting sessions, useful experience.
