Meeting Code: 

Please ensure you are using Firefox, Chrome, Edge or any other web browser that is not Internet Explorer when applying online. Unfortunately IE does not render the complete form and won't let you submit a paper.

We are inviting you to submit a paper proposal or express interest in attending the 2017 CEPR/IZA Annual Symposium in Labour Economics. The symposium will take place on 20-21 September 2018, and it is hosted by Sciences Po in Paris (France).

This year's symposium features a keynote talk by Jesse Rothstein, UC Berkeley.

The goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for high-quality work in labour economics and to bring together economists in the field from across Europe as well as key researchers from outside the region. Paper proposals are invited in any area of labour economics.

The conference brings together around 30 economists for a period of two days. To foster the desired interaction we ask that participants stay for the entire duration of the symposium. The programme will start on Thursday morning (20th) and end on Friday afternoon (21st).


Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered according to CEPR guidelines (http://cepr.org/sites/default/files/CEPR%20TRVL%20GUIDELINES%202017_2.pdf).

If you could contribute to the cost of your attendance from a research grant at your disposal, this would free up funds for other participants and the keynote speaker. Please indicate in your application whether you will be able to cover your own travel costs or whether you will require funding from CEPR. Meals taken during the conference will be covered for all participants
