The Society invites submissions of papers for presentation and proposals for dedicated paper sessions at its Annual Conference in Perth. Papers and proposals for organised sessions from all areas of Economics, Economic Policy and Econometrics are invited from academics and practitioners in government, local authority, NDPBs, private sector and charitable organisations.
The Society places particular emphasis on the application of economics to policy and there will be invited sessions in separate policy and pedagogy streams. Wednesday’s events have been re-designed to provide a well-rounded sub-programme for day delegates and contain sessions that aim to support PhD students and young lecturers.
The Sir Alec Cairncross Memorial Dinner will be held on the Monday. Tuesday’s main social event is the traditional excursion, followed by the Conference Dinner.
Sir Alec Cairncross Prize
The Scottish Economic Society will award a prize of £ 1,000 for the best paper presented at the 2014 annual conference by an economist currently registered for a PhD or who has successfully completed a PhD within the last five years. Consideration for the prize presupposes conference attendance and society membership.
Support for PhD students
The Scottish Economic Society will continue its policy of promoting conference participation by young economists and supporting PhD students. Details of the programme as well as the number of places available will announced in January 2014.
