The Center for Research and Teaching in Economics (CIDE) invites research paper submissions for the “Regional Productivity Workshop”.
The workshop will be held on October 16-17, 2015, at the CIDE Aguascalientes.
This workshop seeks to gather a group of researchers, teachers, students and practitioners of regional policy working in regional economy productivity topics to discuss research done in the field and to build a network of Latin American economics interested in regional productivity.
Structure of the sessions:
The Workshop includes three invited speakers who will open the sessions and one invited talk during the Young Researchers Session:
-Geoff Hewings (University of Illinois)
-Salvador Navarro (University of Western Ontario)
-Mark Partridge (University of Ohio)
-Antonio Álvarez (Universidad de Oviedo)
Presenters of selected papers will have 30 minutes to discuss their work and take questions. Presentations are intended to identify pressing public policy issues and emerging research themes in regional economic productivity.
At the Young Researchers Session (YRS) (October 17th) new entrants in the field will have their papers discussed by senior colleagues.
The workshop will also provide networking and professional development opportunities for faculty and graduate students who are interested in pursuing research in Latin America's regional economic issues.
There is no fee, but registration to the workshop is required.
All Workshop sessions will be held in English.
