The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers studying organisational issues from an international comparative perspective. Contributions based on all sources of enterprise data are welcomed.
After extremely successful Symposia in Bonn, Germany in 2016 and 2018, and in Austin, USA, in 2017, the fourth IZA Junior/Senior Labor Symposium will be held in Austin, USA, on Monday and Tuesday, 8-9 April, 2019. We shall have 10 papers presented by authors who are between 1 and 6 years past the Ph.D. (i.e., Ph.D. conferred between 2013 and 2018 inclusive). No author on any accepted paper should be outside this range of experience.
In addition to the ten authors in attendance, two senior labor economists, Andrea Ichino of the European University Institute and IZA, and Daniel Hamermesh of IZA and Barnard College, will attend throughout and will comment on the papers as they are presented, thus providing some extra mentoring at an early stage of scholars’ careers. Moreover, each paper will be discussed formally by one of the other junior attendees.
Please submit abstracts on papers that are NO MORE THAN SECOND DRAFTS by November 1, 2018 using our online application form. Those selected will be notified by December 1, 2018.
