Sponsored by the MMF, the Bank of England and Portsmouth Business School.
The main objective of the workshop is to provide advanced PhD economists, about to go on the job market, with an opportunity to present their research to their peers and leading researchers in the field inorder to obtain feedback and practice the presentation of their key research ideas. An added bonus is that it allows for some early dissemination of these ideas across the research and policy-making community. As well as senior academics, the conference will be attended by economists from the Bank of England and HM Treasury.
We invite submissions of complete papers from PhD students who are registered for their research degree at UK institutions of higher education. Suitable topics include but are not confined to macroeconomic theory, open economy macroeconomics, monetary economics, macroeconometrics, finance, banking and economic and financial history. Attendees should note that they may be asked to discuss a paper. For successful candidates, the costs of attendance at the conference including 1-night accommodation in a local hotel close to the venue, dinner on the evening of the 3rd, as well as, reasonable travel costs will be met by the sponsors. (Should you wish simply to attend please contact the organisers directly. Please note that, as in previous years, authors of submitted papers which are not accepted will be invited to attend the conference).
