The NBER and the Conference on Research in Income and Wealth (CRIW) seek to promote professional interactions among producers and users of government economic statistics. To that end, in summer 2018 the NBER’s Productivity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program and the CRIW will jointly sponsor a workshop to be held on Monday, July 16 and Tuesday, July 17 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Submissions on any topic related to the measurement of economic activity are welcome. Again this year, the workshop will meet together with the NBER’s Macro Productivity group during a part of the scheduled time and the organizers also solicit papers on topics at the intersection of productivity and macroeconomics (broadly interpreted) to be presented during this session.
Accepted papers will be scheduled either for 15-minute time slots or for 45-minute time slots. The shorter time slots may be especially appropriate for papers that are narrower in scope. When you upload your paper, please indicate if you have a preference for a 15-minute or a 45-minute time slot.
We invite you to upload papers in PDF format or a format readable by Microsoft Word to http://papers.nber.org/confsubmit/backend/cfp?id=SI18PRCR. Please use the same link to submit proposals for the joint session with the NBER Macro Productivity group. When you submit, please indicate whether the paper would be a good fit for the joint session.
The deadline for submissions is March 19, 2018. We will contact only submitters whose papers are accepted.
The NBER will pay for reasonable travel expenses for presenters, subject to NBER guidelines. Only one author per paper will be reimbursed. The NBER Conference Department will assist in making hotel arrangements.
If you have any questions, please contact Rob Shannon in the NBER’s Conference Department at 617/868-3900 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
