European Summer Symposium in Labour Economics (ESSLE)

2-4 September 2010

Buch am Ammersee


The 12th CEPR European Summer Symposium in Labour Economics (ESSLE) will take place between 2-4 September 2010 (arrival 1st September 2010 and departure 5th September 2010). The meeting will be hosted by the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) at the conference centre of Deutsche Post in Buch at the lake of Ammersee (near Munich), and will be organized by Giuseppe Bertola (UniversitÓ degli Studi di Torino and CEPR) and Marco Caliendo (IZA).

ESSLE is designed to bring together economists in the field from across Europe and key researchers from outside the region. It provides a unique opportunity for researchers from different universities and countries to discuss their work in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships. Another important aim of ESSLE is to provide young researchers with the opportunity to meet and discuss their work with senior economists. Paper proposals are invited in any area of labour economics.

ESSLE 2010 will bring together around 40 economists for a period of three days. To foster the desired interaction we request that participants stay for the entire duration of the Symposium. The programme combines focus and contributed sessions with time for collaboration and consultation. Some researchers will be asked to present their work in a poster session.
