Format and Organizational Information
Seminars were 45 minutes long with 15 minutes for discussion.
Seminars were not recorded.
Seminar was organized by Christopher Severen for the urban economics community. How talks were selected: I invited a couple of talks, and created a pool of potential talks based on papers that I found interesting from Jonathan Dingel's Spatial JMC weblist and people that had emailed me to volunteer. I randomized a rank-ordering of people and asked them in order of ranking.
