Dear all,

We would like to invite you to an informal meeting at the C4CC -
http://creative-collaboration.net/ -  on *August 9 at 12pm *to populate the
Open Econometrics database and try out the database and search tool.

At the end of May we gathered a small group in
think about a format for the saving of regression results which would
enable meta analysis of the economics literature.

Our idea has evolved since then and we have decided to build a prototype
which would enable the saving the the query of regression results:
essentially faceted search for dependent and independent variables, models,
journals, authors, JEL classification codes, key words, etc. See these
mock-ups to get an idea of how this tool can be used:

and would be with us on Friday.

Join us for this informal gathering, (optionally) bringing a number of
papers which you would like to populate the database with - they can be the
empirical papers of your field, of your favourite econometrician or journal.

We need your help to get some results in the database and start building
vocabularies for the variables and models used in economics. Do you know if
any such vocabularies have been done until now?

If you are not able to attend in person, let me know so that we could
connect remotely. We expect to be around between 12pm and 6pm, drop by

If you have any questions or suggestions or any other input, please let us
