QuanTM hosts a variety of workshops, speaker events, and conferences throughout the academic year, a number of which revolve around the Institute's annual theme. Research Design is Not Enough is this year’s theme and will be showcased through an outstanding speaker series, a workshop on structural estimation and a conference on the Role of Theory in Causal Identification.
QuanTM funds quantitative science themes for up to a year. By facilitating seminars, workshops, conferences, meet n’ greets, and fellowships around a particular quantitative theme, QuanTM strives to enrich the Emory community and exhibit the topic's various uses and applications. We encourage any faculty in the Emory community to submit a proposal for a QuanTM theme.
Proposals should include a theme title, explanation of the theme, a description of its importance, and requested components for the theme (this may include speakers, faculty fellows from outside institutions, workshops, and/or conferences). Proposals should be no more than two pages in length. The duration and content of each theme is entirely flexible: themes can be anywhere between a semester and a year in length. All logistics for the theme are run by QuanTM staff. The author of the theme is responsible for collaborating with QuanTM staff to invite speakers and visitors, construct itineraries, and give introductory remarks at events. In compensation for this responsibility, the author of an accepted proposal will receive a research account supplement each semester of the theme.
All submissions and questions about proposals may be sent to IQTM@emory.edu.
