The University of Cagliari, with support from the School of Economics, Georgia Institute of Technology, will host the Sardinian Empirical Trade Conference virtually on Gather. The conference is open to other attendees whose papers are not on the program. There is no entry fee, but space is limited and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis for those not on the program. Every participant must register below.

Gather is a new platform for hosting virtual conferences. Presentations will be conducted in Zoom which can be accessed directly from Gather. During breaks participants can interact in the conference space on Gather which allows for small group conversations. Rather than having to navigate large group conversations in Zoom, it is possible to have multiple concurrent small group conversations in Gather. Feel free to explore one such space here. You can read about Gather and read a basic guide here.

We can have up to 100 participants in Gather. Please register below. Spots in Gather will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis. Additional participants will be able to participate during talks via Zoom.
