CfP: Sixth Workshop on International Economic Networks W.I.E.N.

Organizers: Pol Antràs (Harvard), Alejandro Cuñat (University of Vienna), and Kalina Manova (UCL)

Keynote Speakers: Swati Dhingra (LSE) and Marc J. Melitz (Harvard)

Following upon the first five editions of WIEN, the University of Vienna will again host a two-day meeting that will draw together researchers interested in international economics, global value chains and economic geography.

The workshop will take place in the beautiful Sky-lounge of the University of Vienna’s Faculty of Business, Economics and Statistics, overlooking the city center.

To be considered for inclusion on the program, papers must be submitted in PDF format to by Friday, March 10th 2023. Authors chosen to present papers at the conference will be notified in late March.

The organizers are particularly keen on receiving submissions from young scholars, including Ph.D. students and researchers who have just completed their Ph.D‘s. With that in mind, we would appreciate it if you could circulate this Call for Papers among your junior colleagues, former students and current Ph.D. students. As in past editions, we will actively seek diversity in the set of selected speakers.

Participants will be provided with accommodation in central Vienna, and airfares for speakers will also be reimbursed subject to certain budget guidelines. The conference is generously supported by the Heinrich Graph Hardegg’sche Stiftung, FIW, University of Vienna, VGSE, wiiw, and the European Research Council under the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme (grant agreement 724880).
