This Event is no longer receiving submissions.

On June 5 to 7, 2024, the Paris School of Economics - Ecole d'Economie de Paris will host the second PSE-CEPR Policy Forum, following the success of the first edition in June 2023. The PSE-CEPR Policy Forum is devoted to the discussion of emerging issues among leading researchers and policymakers, reaching a large audience that includes government officials and legislators, the media and academia. 


The Forum is organized around keynote lectures, high-level policy conversations, and sessions devoted to the presentation and discussion of recent academic papers. It also showcases the next generation of economists through poster sessions and presentations by advanced PhD students.


The theme for the PSE-CEPR Policy Forum 2024 will be "Exploring the Science of the Brazil G20: Building A Just World and a Sustainable Planet" with keynote speakers: 


•    Abhijit Banerjee (MIT and CEPR) on Global Poverty, 
•    Esther Duflo (Paris School of Economics, MIT and CEPR) on Climate Change Compensation,
•    Gabriel Zucman (Paris School of Economics) on International Taxation. 


Accordingly, this call for papers seeks submissions from researchers to present their papers in an augmented poster format during one of the days of the forum. We welcome paper submissions from PhD students working on research topics related to Development, Environment and International Public Finance. 


The goal of the poster sessions is to provide a forum for European researchers to get exposure for and receive feedback on their work. 

 

Augmented poster session details:
Researchers accepted to present their poster will give very short (<10 min) presentations of their work in a pre-lunch session during the conference and participate in poster sessions during the extended lunch periods immediately following their presentations. All Forum attendees will be encouraged to engage with the poster-session presenters, and poster session presenters are encouraged to attend the full five-day event.

 

Eligibility:
Given its goals, only researchers pursuing a PhD from a European economics program are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to those students expecting to go on the academic job market in 2024-2025. 

If you are - or know of - a PhD student that may want to attend the forum, please pass this call on to them. To attend, the individual must have a completed paper that they can present and a (electronic) poster to display in the poster session. 

 

Funding:
Grants to cover travel and accommodation costs are available for young researchers who require it. Applicants should indicate with their submission whether they wish to be considered for travel funding, accommodation funding, both, or none. We recommend that you hold off making any travel arrangements until further information has been given. 

 

Submissions and Deadlines:
The deadline for submissions is now extended to Wednesday 17 April 2024 at 6 PM (CEST) and must include a research paper, a CV, and a short letter of support from their main advisor (max 1 page). Letters of support can optionally be sent by the advisor directly to [email protected]
