Letter from the organizers

Dear Participants,
After returning to Florence I’m back in my office to write my usual message after the IRMC.
I hope you enjoyed IRMC 2014 as much as I did and the questionnaire you have filled will help us in understanding the level of satisfaction.
I remain open to comments, critics and suggestions for improving the quality.
As you know the success/failure of a complex event like a conference depends on several factors:
- The participants – all of you!!!
- The quality of the paper presented – your capabilities
- The infrastructure
- The funding – Sponsors and Fund raisers
and only at last
- The conference organizers
For this reason I would like to start thanking you all for your participation. My special thanks goes to the Host Institution (SGH WARSAW SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS) in particular to the colleagues and friends Malgorzata Iwanicz-Drozdowska for the excellent job done so far. To them and to all the SGH Staff, congratulations!
Secondly, there is no good Conference without distinguish Keynotes. This is the reason why I'm grateful to Franklin Allen, Menachem Brenner, Edward Altman, Bing Liang, Sanjiv Das, Dobieslaw Tymoczko and Santiago Carbo-Valverde for the outstanding presentations delivered at IRMC 2014. In the next future we will inform you about the availability of the videos in our website.
