Papers submitted to the annual SIOE conferences undergo a thorough review process. For the 2016 conference in Paris, each individually submitted paper was anonymously evaluated for its academic quality by two members of the program committee, chaired by Sergei Guriev. The reviewers used a scale from 1 (worst) to 5 (best). Papers were then ranked according to the average of the two evaluations they received. An astonishing number of 35 papers received the best-possible average ranking, 5 out of 5.
We would like to share with you a list of this set of top papers. They can be downloaded, where provided by the authors, from this page.
