Assistant Professor of Economics Timothy P. Hubbard organized the second Maine Economics Conference, held at Colby April 26, 2014. The conference convened academic economists from colleges and universities across the state as well as students who not only attended but also presented posters during a dedicated session. Hubbard is also co-organizing the Conference on Auctions, Competition, Regulation, and Public Policy, scheduled for summer 2014 at Lancaster University in the United Kingdom.

In March 2014 Hubbard presented a paper he coauthored with two other economists, “Efficacy of a Bidder Training Program: Lessons from LINC,” at the First Brazilian Conference Series on Public Procurement and Concession Design in São Paulo.
