Search and Matching Network (SaM)

See below from the SIRE mailing list: 

The Search and Matching Network (SaM) is a European network of academic economists working on search and matching models, including labour market search, consumer search, `money search' and housing search. It organises an Annual Conference aimed at bringing together in one place a large set of prominent researchers from Europe and elsewhere, while also including promising PhD students, to facilitate feedback and the exchange of ideas. 

SIRE is pleased to announce that the next conference will be held in Edinburgh, between 8-10 May 2014, organised by by Prof. Philipp Kircher and Dr. Ludo Visschers (both at the University of Edinburgh).
The 2014 event will welcome confirmed keynote speakers Costas Meghir (Yale) and Per Krusell (Stockholm).

SIRE is able to offer a subsidy (of up to £200) towards the travel and accommodation costs of a number of PhD students and young post-docs (i.e. those within four years after completion of their PhD). Priority will be given to those who are selected to present a paper.
