Series of Seminars at SMAUG

SMAUG invites researchers to participate in its upcoming seminar on Tuesday, June 27,  15:00 - 16:00, in room 709 (7th floor).

This seminar marks the start of a series of monthly informal seminars organized by SMAUG, aimed at providing an academic setting for researchers to share work which is at a very preliminary stage, in order to foster discussion and exchange ideas in an informal and relaxed way.

The presenter of the first seminar is Benjamín Villena, who will discuss his current working paper titled "Deconstructing job search behavior" (joint with S. Choi and S. Banfi).

Master students are very welcome to attend, and they can contact Alessandra Pizzo (a.pizzo@dii.uchile.cl) if they are also interested in presenting their work.  

In order to choose the room that can accommodate everyone, we would appreciate it if you could notify Alessandra Pizzo of your attendance.  

We look forward to seeing you there!
