The CEPR annual symposium of the Development Economics Programme will be hosted by Trinity College Dublin on Wednesday 4 September and Thursday 5 September, 2019. The workshop is organised by TIME (Trinity College Dublin), STICERD (London School of Economics) and CEPR and is funded by Irish Aid. 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 20 May 2019.

We accept both full-length papers and extended abstracts for projects at an advanced stage. A pre-conference session will also be arranged for junior faculty to get the opportunity to present their work. Please use the same submission process (selecting the Pre-Conference session in your application) if you would like your work to be considered for this part of the conference.


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.

How to apply

Please note that there will be time for only a small number of presentations. The conference lasts about a day and a half; there are no parallel sessions. Authors who are CEPR members can upload their submission online at call for papers website. Authors who are not CEPR members can create a profile online here. If you have any difficulties registering for this meeting please contact Mandy Chan [email protected].

We aim to notify successful applicants by mid-June 2019.
