Dear SaM2021 participant,

The Search and Matching Network (SaM) is a European network of academic economists working on search and matching models, including models of labour market search, consumer search, money search and housing search. It organises an Annual Conference, aimed at bringing together prominent researchers from Europe and elsewhere, while also including promising PhD students, to facilitate feedback and the exchange of ideas.

Due to Covid-19 SaM2020 was postponed to 2021 and will take place at Copenhagen Business School, in Copenhagen, Denmark, from May 19th to 21st. It is organised jointly with the Inequality Platform at CBS.

A new call for submissions will be out in October 2020 with acceptance in February 2021. Because of the uncertainty from covid-19 we are asking not to make reservation before final acceptance in February 2021. The conference will take place at CBS (if restrictions allow), but people are welcome to present and attend online.


Leena Rudanko (Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia) and Morten Ravn (UCL) are keynote speakers.


Kind regards

Local organizers: Birthe Larsen, Jesper Bagger, Rune Vejlin

SaM steering committee: Pieter Gautier, Bruno Decreuse, Fabien Postel-Vinay, Philipp Kircher, Arnaud Cheron, Jan Eeckhout
