In Partnership with the Banque de France
Paris, France, 27th – 29th May 2024


ESSIM Format
A joint meeting of the following programmes:
International Macroeconomics and Finance (IMF), Monetary Economics and Fluctuations (MEF) and Macroeconomics and Growth (MG).


This call for papers invites you to submit a paper proposal for this conference in any area of macroeconomics and related fields or to express your interest in attending as a discussant.

The programme is structured with a mixture of plenary parallel sessions. The programme will begin on Monday afternoon and will end around noon on Wednesday.

This flexible, condensed format allows participants to attend both plenary sessions and specialised presentations. It is expected that those attending do so for the duration of the conference.

Banque de France's "BdF young PhD Award" will also be handed out during the meeting.

All participants are expected to attend both the plenary talks and the presentation sessions for their relevant programme area.


ESSIM is an annual meeting that brings together about 75 economists from across Europe and key researchers from outside the region. It provides a unique opportunity for macroeconomists from different research institutions and countries to discuss research in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships.

Another important aim of ESSIM is to provide young researchers with the opportunity to meet and discuss their work with senior economists. 

If you wish to recommend a younger colleague who might benefit from presenting at or attending ESSIM, please forward this call for papers or email, Despoina Chatzilari, Senior Events Officer at [email protected] with their curriculum vitae and/or paper.

Participation at ESSIM
Accommodation funding for all academic participants will be provided, but CEPR cannot commit to financing the travel expenses of all participants at this stage. It is therefore important for you and other participants to use any research travel funding you may have at your disposal. Please indicate on your application whether you will be able to cover your own travel costs or whether you will require funding from CEPR. Where CEPR does contribute to travel costs, this will be in accordance with the CEPR Travel Guidelines.
CEPR cannot accept all applications to attend ESSIM as demand always exceeds the space available. We try to operate the unavoidable rationing as fairly as possible, and in so doing, we assume that those who participate will attend for the full duration of the meeting.
