The Seattle-Vancouver Econometrics Conference (SVEC) is an annual conference among econometricians and applied econometricians from the University of Washington-Seattle, Simon Fraser University, and the University of British Columbia. The conference was first organized in 2014. The 2014 conference was hosted by the University of Washington, Department of Economics, and held on Saturday, September 13, 2014, in Savery Hall on the UW campus. Since then, it was successively organized by SFU in 2015, UBC in 2016, UW in 2017, and SFU in 2018.

The objective of this conference is to have an annual meeting which facilitates networking and sharing research ideas among econometricians, and to provide a venue in which graduate students can participate and/or present their work. Register below.
