SES Annual Conference

The 2016 Annual Conference is planned for April 2016 in Perth. The Society welcomes papers and proposals for organised sessions from all areas of Economics, Economic Policy and Econometrics from academics and practitioners regardless of sector.

The Society places particular emphasis on the application of economics to policy and there will be invited sessions in separate policy and pedagogy streams. Wednesday's events have been re-designed to provide a well-rounded sub-programme for day delegates and contain sessions that aim to support PhD students and young lecturers.

Please see the conference page for details.
