    IZA/OECD Workshop: Applications with Linked Employer-Employee Data


    The workshop seeks to bring together researchers who share an interest in using linked employer-employee data for innovative and policy-relevant research. The workshop will take place on April 10 and be preceded by a policy seminar with a keynote speaker on April 9. The workshop is organized in the context of the OECDs LinkEED v 2.0 project that seeks to enhance our understanding of the role of policies in inclusive growth through cross-country analytical work based on linked employer-employee data from different OECD countries. We welcome submissions of applied papers using linked employer-employee data in all areas.

    2nd IZA/OECD Workshop: Climate Change and the Labor Market


    The IZA/OECD workshops aim to increase synergies between researchers and OECD experts to promote the societal impact of academic research and the relevance of expertise. These workshops are organized twice a year and focus on topics of particular importance to the economy and society. They bring together researchers from the IZA network, OECD experts and policymakers. They take place by videoconference, over half a day, with presentations by experts, researchers and discussions with policymakers.

4th IZA Junior/Senior Symposium
November 08, 2018 - November 09, 2018
About the Symposium
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.

Those authors who are invited are expected to participate in the whole two day symposium. Economy class airfares and up to 3 nights of lodging for presenting authors will be covered according to the IZA Reimbursement Guidelines.
