We will be awarding a daily prize of $75/£50 worth of Wiley books to recognize the “best comment” made by a delegate during each 24-hour period. The first award will be announced on Thursday 17 November at 13:00 GMT.

We hope to see a very high level of discussion specifically in response to the keynotes, papers, commentaries and workshops and strongly encourage you to respond to these with considered, substantive comments. We look forward to reading your contributions.

We are very pleased to announce that the 3-day Wiley Economics Online Conference starts this week – on Wednesday 16 November 2011!

To get the most out of the conference, we encourage you to register and sign up for email alerts, check out the conference programme (PDF), spread the word on facebook and twitter (#joes2011), read the book of abstracts and, if you’re unsure about the commenting feature, take a look at our participants’ guide – we’re awarding a daily “best comment” award throughout the conference.

We hope you’ll be able to join us for the three days. The conference is free, available to all, and can, of course, be accessed at any time of day. Feedback is welcome, so if you do have any questions, please contact us on twitter or leave a comment below.
