2014 Annual Conference of the Scottish Economic Society (SES)

  • Conference Call
  • The 2014 Annual Con­fer­ence of the Scot­tish Eco­nomic Soci­ety (SES) will be held on April 28 – 30, 2014 in Perth, Scot­t­land at the Mer­cure Perth Hotel.

    Con­fer­ence Theme

    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.
