On the eve of the World Econometrics Congress, CIRANO was pleased to host on August 16, 2015 a one-day conference to honour René Garcia’s 65th anniversary. Aside from his contributions to econometrics and to the field of financial econometrics—themes which undoubtedly will be signalled anecdotally throughout the day— the Finance Group at CIRANO acknowledges with respect our considerable debt to René who provided leadership and motivation at a crucial point in our history. His emphasis on excellence and insistence on team play resonate to this day both at professional and personal levels.
CIRANO Finance Group: Bryan Campbell, Nour Meddahi, Benoit Perron
Program Committee: Nour Meddahi, Romeo Tedongap, Caio Almeida, Marcel Rindisbacher
