The overarching objective is to support and encourage the pursuit of high quality theoretical and applied research in those fields by facilitating collaborations between researchers and research centers, to give graduate students and early-career researchers opportunities to meet their senior peers within the network, and more generally to advocate the search and matching paradigm as a useful way to think about equilibrium in certain markets.

SED 2012, Society of Economic Dynamics Annual Meeting, 22-24 June 2012 - Limassol, Cyprus
An exciting program for this year's meeting. The current global economic situation with a slow recovery from the great recession and a restructuring of the financial sector is addressed in many sessions. Issues of sovereign debt, international default, and financial contagion naturally play an important role in the conference, especially given that the conference takes place for the second time in a row in Europe and the European debt crisis remains a central policy issue. Yet, also beyond these topics significant contributions in all areas of macroeconomics and related fields are presented.
