This workshop for third-year and other advanced students in industrial organization. It is intended to guide students in the early stages of dissertation research. The emphasis will be on presentation and discussion of material by students that will (hopefully) lead to dissertations by those students. Each student must make at least one such presentation by the end of the year and multiple presentations by students at different stages of their research are encouraged. Students enrolled in this workshop are strongly encouraged to attend at least one advanced workshop in the field or fields that interest them.
