Dear prospective sponsor,

We have the pleasure to inform you that the Lille 2 University of Health and Law, Faculty of Law, Politics and Social Science, will host the XIII. Spring Meeting of Young Economists (SMYE) from April 17 to 19, 2008. This highly renowned conference has the long-standing goal to integrate the community of young economist. The SMYE regularly attracts PhD students, Post-doctoral Researchers, and young lecturers across all economic disciplines and from all over the world, its focus however is on Europe. It provides them with a pan-European platform to gather, present their work, and share their ideas when they are just at the beginning of their academic careers.

Initiated in Berlin, the SMYE is held on an annual basis since 1996. The first few meetings took place in Germany. In 1999 the conference was staged in Amsterdam and since then in Oxford, Copenhagen, Paris, Leuven, Warsaw, Geneva and Seville. It is the first time since 1998 that the event will be held in Germany again.

Over the past years, the SMYE has developed into an event of high academic standard. This has been reflected in the increasing number of applicants, a consistently high quality of papers presented, and the ability to attract world-class economists and later Nobel Prize Laureates as keynote speakers. At SMYE 2008, keynote lectures will be delivered in particular by Omer Moav.

The SMYE is an independent conference organized for young economists by young economists. For our budget estimated in the amount of 30,000 € we rely on sponsorship. We would like to use this opportunity to invite your company to become one of the sponsors of SMYE 2008. We offer sponsors various options to present their company or institution.
