Call for Papers
Advances in Econometrics, Volume 32 - Structural Microeconometrics

Structural econometric modeling has become an integral part of empirical work in many fields, including Industrial Organization, Labor Economics, and Health Economics. Structural empirical models have been estimated to address a wide variety of economic and policy questions. The aim of this call for papers is to produce a research volume that examines key aspects of modern research, addresses important challenges, and improves upon current theoretical foundations and econometric implementation.

TOPICS: The volume will focus on recent developments in structural microeconometrics. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
1) Econometrics of two-sided matching models
i. matching models in labor markets (marriage, firms/workers)
ii. matching models in IO (mergers, vertical integration)
2) Advances in the estimation of game-theoretic models
3) Dynamic models of behavior and markets; dynamic games
4) Econometrics of social interaction games, network games, and network formation models
5) Empirical models of auctions and other models of asymmetric information
6) Studies of market structure, including demand/supply estimation, and merger analysis
7) Other topics in structural modeling

Selected papers will appear in Advances in Econometrics, Volume 32. The volume will be co-edited by Matthew Shum and Eugene Choo.

CONFERENCE: A research conference for contributors will be held February 8-10, 2013, on the campus of Louisiana State University. Review of complete manuscripts will commence in April, 2013. Accepted articles will appear in print in 2013/2014.

FURTHER INFORMATION: Advances in Econometrics, published by Emerald Group Publishing, Ltd., is a research annual whose editorial policy is to publish original articles that contain enough details so that economists and econometricians who are not experts in the topics will find them accessible and useful in their research. To that end, authors should be able to provide, upon request, computer programs and data used in their articles.
