Conference scope and highlights

The “Communications with Economists” conference seeks to connect academic researchers, students, policymakers and journalists interested in, but not necessarily experts on, a range of issues in current economic research and, importantly, developing trends in these areas. It will feature:

  • Video keynote addresses from leading figures in the fieldProf. Sir David Hendry, Prof. Tom Stanley and Prof. Charles Noussair
  • Scholarly papers with expert commentary – topics ranging from happiness economics to monetary economics
  • Publishing workshops
  • Book and journal ‘Reading Rooms’, with a generous delegates’ discount on books and free journal articles
  • Text discussion open to all
  • Attendance certificate

Why attend?

A note from Les Oxley, Journal of Economic Surveys (JoES) Editor-in-Chief.

“Current research in economics seems to be getting ever more specialised, balkanised and potentially exclusive such that the ability to keep-up with issues outside of a person’s chosen field of interest is constrained. The ability to enter into dialogue on current ideas and future trends is further constrained by both knowledge of the area, but also the options to meet, discuss and debate. Blogs fill some of this gap, but academic conferences seem to remain the ‘gold standard’ despite their carbon footprints. The JoES Online Conference provides an opportunity to mix the best aspects of conferencing (world class presentations and discussions) with an environmentally friendly low carbon footprint (no need to have a carbon conscience about attending) and accessibility to presentations by a wide audience who have the ability to ask any question, no matter how simple or basic, at any time during the conference. Neither time zones nor jet lag or access to funding (registration is free!) will hinder a delegate’s chance to hear and read some of the best in their fields discuss current and future trends in their areas. This is a real opportunity, with few excuses, to hear what is happening, both now and in the future, to comment, discuss and debate. There are few free lunches, but this gets close!”
