There's an interesting looking online conference coming up in November - the 16th to 18th of November, specifically. This free conference is courtesy of the Journal of Economic Surveys, and their publisher, Wiley.
The full title of the conference is "Communications With Economists: Current and Future Trends", and there will be three keynote videos; five papers with invited commentaries; workshops on academic publishing; a "reading room"; and lots of discussion.
Students can register, and of special interest to students and practitioners of econometrics will be the keynote video by Professor Sir David Hendry (University of Oxford), one of the foremost econometricians of our time.
Thanks to Les Oxley and the rest of the team at JOES.
Register here - I have!
