Conference information

The 2016 CEPR/IZA Annual Symposium in Labour Economics will take place on 19-20 September 2016, and is hosted by the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics (UK). 

This year's symposium features a keynote talk by Alex Mas, Princeton University.

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 event provides an opportunity for researchers from different universities and countries to discuss their work in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships. It also provides an opportunity for young researchers to meet and discuss their work with senior economists.

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 Monday morning (19th) and end on Tuesday afternoon (20th).
