Call for Papers
The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), Sveriges Riksbank, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the European Central Bank (ECB) are inviting submissions for their 2023 conference “WE_ARE_IN Macroeconomics and Finance”.
The aim of the conference is to bring together female economists who will present and discuss new research on macroeconomics and finance which is of particular interest to central banks. We welcome both empirical and theoretical contributions on topics including, but not limited to:
Climate change and transition challenges
Commodity prices, supply bottlenecks, relative price changes
Origins and consequences of inflation and inflation dynamics
Capital flows and macro-financial frameworks in emerging economies
Monetary policy normalization and quantitative tightening
Macroprudential policy and monetary policy interaction
The conference will foster interaction between junior and senior female economists across academia and policy institutions.
PhD student poster session
We invite submissions from female PhD students to present in a poster session. Students who plan to be on the market this coming fall are particularly encouraged to submit.
A policy panel on "What is the effect of climate change on our understanding of macroeconomic and financial stability?" will take place on the first day of the conference.
The conference is scheduled to take place in person in Stockholm Sweden, provided there are no travel restrictions in place, and it is safe to travel.
Travel & Accommodation
The organisers will fund travel costs for Academics and PhD students travelling to Stockholm from both within and outside Europe. Flights will be reimbursed for the cost of Economy airfares.
Hotel rooms for participants will be pre-booked at the conference venue. Accommodation funding is available for academics and PhD students.
How to apply
We invite female researchers to submit academic papers. Please note submissions are limited to one paper per person.
To apply please complete the application form which can be found here.
The deadline for replies is 6:00 PM BST on Monday, May 1st, 2023.
As May 1st is a bank holiday in the UK, the CEPR office will be closed. We recommend submitting your application well in advance of this deadline to ensure that assistance with submission if needed, is readily available.
Notification of acceptance is expected in early June.
We welcome those who would like to apply as discussants even if they do not have a paper to submit.
For those submitting to the PhD Poster Session, please provide the contact details of your PhD supervisor as well as information on the status and stage of your PhD.
