The journal Empirical Economics is organizing a special issue on economic applications of quantile regression intended to follow up on the special issue that was published in 2001 and reprinted by Springer in 2003. The special issue should reflect the methodological advances that have occurred over the intervening two decades while maintaining a strong focus on substantive economic problems. The editors of the special issue are Bernd Fitzenberger, Roger Koenker, José Machado, and Blaise Melly. The conference will be held at Nova SBE. You can check the program here.
