We are writing to invite you to submit a paper proposal or to express your interest in attending the joint CEPR and seventh Banco de España Economic History Seminar, which will take place on 8 October 2021.

The symposium aims to bring together leading researchers in the field. Papers are being sought on topics including, but not necessarily limited to:

  • Macroeconomic and financial history
  • Economic growth in the very long run
  • Institutions and economic development
  • The history of the international economy

If you would like to submit a paper proposal, please upload a draft with your reply form by visiting and indicate whether or not you wish to present a paper or act as a discussant. You will also be asked to specify your funding requirements.

If you do not currently have a CEPR profile, please create one at and then click on the registration link above. If you have any difficulties registering for this meeting, please contact Mandy Chan, Senior Events Officer at
The deadline for replies is Tuesday 1 June 2021. We cannot accept submissions received after this date.

We hope that this seminar can take place physically in Madrid but will continue to monitor the situation. However, due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and travel restrictions, the seminar may become an online seminar depending on the situation closer to the time.
If the seminar can take place physically, accommodation expenses will be covered for participants on the programme. Limited travel funding is available according to the CEPR Travel Guidelines which will be circulated at a later date. We recommend that you hold off making any travel arrangements until further information has been given.  The organisers will notify prospective participants by July of their decision.
