Conference Trip to Rio de Janeiro

Old Members Trust Travel Grant Report – Anna Sanktjohanser

I attended the Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory (SAET) conference in Rio de Janeiro from 6-9 July 2016. This is the main, first-rate conference of the mainstream society of economic theorists. I was able to present my paper on endogenous monitoring in a partnership game in the session on Dynamic Games.

The presentation went very well, I had a number of questions on my paper, and several people approached me after the session to ask further questions and give me feedback – for instance, Andrew Clausen from Edinburgh University or Helios Herrera from Warwick University. This was extremely useful, and I am integrating some of the feedback into the paper before I send it off to a journal at the end of this summer.

I very much enjoyed the rest of the conference too. There were many interesting talks for instance by Lucas Maestri, Joyee Deb and Johannes Horner. I was also able to make connections with a number of young researchers building up my network of people interested in similar areas.

I am very grateful for the financial support I received from the Old Members’ Trust Graduate Conference and Academic Travel Grant without which this trip would not have been possible – thank you.
