Abstracts and papers must be in English. Papers should not exceed 25 pages (A4 or letter) including all references, tables, etc. Individual authors can submit up to two papers.
All papers will be peer reviewed. The conference organizers encourage early submission since this will speed up the referee process considerably. Authors of accepted papers will generally be notified three weeks after submission, but not later than

Proposals for complete sessions are also encouraged. Each session should be made up of three papers. In the submitted proposals, session organizers should indicate the name of the session chair, the names, affiliations, contact numbers and e-mail addresses of the authors and the chair, and the titles of the papers, each accompanied by the paper abstract.
We welcome theoretical, empirical and policy-oriented papers in all fields of economics. Participants are expected to serve as chairs of individual conference sessions.

The award consists of €250 in cash and an €250 INFER book voucher. At submission, please state whether you would like to be considered for the young economist award.
