3rd IDSC of IZA/University of Luxembourg Workshop: Matching Workers and Jobs Online - New Developments and Opportunities for Social Science and PracticeBonn, Germany
Like many forms of economic exchange, the process of matching workers to jobs has rapidly migrated online in the last two decades. Thus, understanding how online labor matching mechanisms work; how they affect economic outcomes like employment, wages, and inequality; and learning how to take advantages of the ‘big data’ that are generated by online markets all have important implications for the future of labor.Madrid, Spain
Leaders of the employment and recruitment industry, policymakers, academics, HR practitioners and trade unionists from around the world will come together with a single purpose: to exchange views on how to steer a labour market in transformation.
We are delighted to announce that the 6th Annual Meeting on the Economics of Risky Behaviors will be held at Universidad EAFIT in Medellin, Colombia. We would like to acknowledge the generous support from IZA, Universidad EAFIT, the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at GSU, the Center for the Economic Analysis of Risk at GSU, and the Usery Workplace Research Group at GSU.
Many individuals, adults, adolescents, and children alike engage in a host of risky behaviors that might have significant present and future ramifications. Broadly defined, these are the type of behaviors that involves a trade-off between short term benefits and long-term costs. Examples of such behaviors include, but are not limited to, crime and delinquency, smoking, alcohol and substance abuse, suicidal behavior, reckless driving and driving under the influence, underage sexual activity and sexual behaviors that contribute to unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, and poor diets and sedentary lifestyles leading to obesity. These behaviors are major source of preventable deaths and impose substantial costs on those who engage in them and the society.
The meeting will bring together economists and researchers from other disciplines who work on the analysis of risky behaviors. We hope to advance our understanding of the causes and consequences of risky behaviors and to promote policies aimed to reduce the incidence and cost of these behaviors. We seek high quality academic work that enriches, refines, and challenges our understanding of the broad array of issues related to the analysis of risky behaviors. Please note that papers have to be unpublished at the time of submission. The highlight of the 2014 meeting is a keynote lecture to be delivered by Steven Raphael of University of California, Berkeley and IZA.
The meeting will be organized in a manner designed to foster interaction and exchange of ideas among the participants in a comfortable atmosphere.
