Murat Sertel Lecture (formerly ASSET Lecture)

 

This invited lecture was inaugurated in 1993 and it was intially named as the ASSET Lecture. In 2003 it was renamed as the Murat Sertel Lecture in memory of Murat R. Sertel (1942–2003) who passed away on January 25, 2003, in Aix-en-Provence, France, due to a heart attack while attending a conference. Murat Sertel had participated in ASSET events starting from its early days, he was a member of ASSET's Board for numerous years as the representative of Boğaziçi University, and he served as vice president of ASSET during 2001-2003. Among his many achievements was the founding of Review of Economic Design, for which he served as editor-in-chief until he passed away.

 

The presenter of the Murat Sertel Lecture is chosen by the local organizing committee of the annual meeting.
