Call for papers

September 9 2019

The 9th Annual Christmas Meeting of Belgian Economists.

Date: Friday, December 20, 2019.

Location: Louvain-la-Neuve.

Keynote Speakers:

Klaus Desmet (Southern Methodist University)

Christian Gollier (Toulouse School of Economics).

As in the previous years, the idea is to have a relaxed day of presentations and exchanges. IRES will provide lunch, tea/coffee and a reception in the evening. 

In addition to the two keynote presentations, we intend to have about 5 presentations of 30 minutes by Belgian economists abroad. If you would like to present, please send a title, abstract and paper to gonzague.vannoorenberghe@uclouvain.be. The organisers will make a selection out of the submitted papers, making sure that we have a balanced programme in terms of the represented research fields.

The deadline for submission of papers is October 31, 2019.
