The 2017 International Panel Data Conference (IPDC) will be hosted by the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki, Greece, on July 7-8, 2017. The event marks the 40th anniversary of the series.
The aim of the conference is to bring together economists, econometricians, statisticians and social scientists using panel data for their applied and/or theoretical research. We will welcome submissions related to all aspects of panel data, including factor models, non-parametric estimation, dynamic models, non-linear models, multivariate analysis, spatial models, and applications to forecasting, finance, productivity, health, labor, income inequality, macroeconomics, microeconomics, and others. The conference provides an active forum for researchers to discuss their findings from theoretical or empirical viewpoints, seek feedback, exchange ideas for future research and promote active collaboration in all areas of panel data analysis.

We plan to submit a special issue at the Journal of Econometrics, dedicated to recent developments in panel data analysis. The special issue will mark the 40th anniversary of the International Panel Data Conference series. Please indicate, on submitting your paper, whether you would like it to be considered for possible inclusion. Papers considered are expected to be as innovative and of the same quality as those in the regular issues of the Journal of Econometrics. They should also include a thorough overview of the relevant literature and provide clear guidance for future research and relevant applications. We will include the abstracts of the papers we deem most fit in the final submission to the editors of the journal.
The Department of Economics of the University of Macedonia is delighted to be the host of the 40th Anniversary of the International Panel Data Conference in Thessaloniki, Greece, and provides a warm welcome to all visitors.
