              The Royal Economic Society is pleased to announce its 5th Symposium of Junior Researchers, which will take place on 18 April, 2019 at the University of Warwick.

              Keynote Lecture: "Providing Advice to Job Seekers: Experimental Evidence" by Professor Michèle Belot

              With the support of the Royal Economic Society, the event is organised by research students for research students. Its objectives are to bring together students to foster discussion and dissemination of research in all areas of economics. The Symposium takes place following the Annual Conference of the RES.
              It is our hope to bring together a larger group of researchers than only the presenters, and attendance (up to full capacity) is encouraged for all who are interested, even those who do not present. The format includes parallel presentation sessions and a poster session, in which young economists will have the opportunity to discuss and disseminate their research. Each presenter will be a discussant for another paper in the same presentation session.

              For more information and registration for the symposium, please visit the their website.

                RES Presents is a series of events for the general public featuring renowned economists discussing topical issues. RES Presents takes place during the Annual Conference and is a free event open to everyone.

                This year’s RES Presents features three open discussions. Each meeting will feature a panel of speakers plus a chair, with opening remarks from each speaker and then a general discussion and plenty of Q&A.

                For more information and to register, visit the RES Presents webpage

                We would suggest you take a look at http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/accommodation/ where you can see pictures, details and current prices of everything that is available for undergraduates.
