Prof. Jacques-François Thisse is going to to honour us with a presentation at Ipea (Institute for Applied Economic Research - Brazil). As far as I know, it's going to be broadcast on the internet ! (I will post the link later);

Brasília, Brazil
Semptember, 1st.
9:30am till 12pm local time. (GMT -3:00) do the math! or click here to make the conversion to your local time.

Thisse is professor of economics at the Université Catholique de Louvain (He is also among the top 5% authors registered inRePEc).
Important: I belive the presentation will be translated to portuguese (and I hope it doesn't disturb the broadcast).
