The Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), the Bureau for Research and Economic Analysis of Development (BREAD), and the Trinity Impact Evaluation Centre (TIME) will hold a joint conference on Development Economics on Friday 21 September and Saturday 22 September, 2018. The conference will be hosted by STICERD at the London School of Economics in London. We now invite submissions for this conference from interested researchers on any topic within the area of Development Economics. The deadline for submission is Monday 21 May 2018. We accept both full-length papers and extended abstracts for projects at an advanced stage.

A pre-conference for junior faculty will be held on the morning of the 21st. Please use the same submission process (mentioning "Pre-Conference" in your application).


The sponsoring institutions can cover accommodation and travel according to the CEPR guidelines for presenters and discussants. However, funding is limited and we encourage more senior participants to use their own grants to cover costs.
