Final Version of ISNE Programme

The final version of the ISNE programme was put up on the conference website this week. The event in Galway this Friday features many interesting parallel sessions on topics as diverse as macro, labour, transport/spatial, happinness/welfare, IO, finance, health, education, history and economic thought.

There will be a keynote presentation from Prof. Robert Wright on "Demographic Change and Macroeconomic Performance", as well as many other topical presentations relating to the modelling of Irish property markets, the structure of market towns in Ireland, excess commuting in the Greater Dublin Area, redistribution in the Irish tax system over the last two decades, the house price bubble in the United States, the pricing of natural gas exports, the market for air transport services and much more besides.

Plenty of useful information is available on the conference website, including the Google-map below, which shows the route from Galway train station (A) to the Distillery Road entrance of NUIG (B). The conference venue is the J.E. Cairnes Graduate School of Buiness and Public Policy, which is very close to the Distillery Road entrance. The ever-useful Google-maps service tells us that the estimated walking time for the journey from A to B is 25 minutes. A full set of directions is also available here.
