FIW – the Austrian Research Centre International Economics invites the submission of papers to be presented at the 5th annual FIW Research Conference on International Economics. The main objective of the conference is to provide a platform for economists working in the field of International Economics in Austria and its neighbouring countries to present recent research.
Papers from Ph.D. students, post-graduate students, young faculty members and young researchers in similar positions are particularly welcome as the conference aims to support and encourage young economists by providing an opportunity to present their work.

- The topic of the paper should match the thematic orientation of International Economics (JEL Codes F and/or O).
- The paper has not yet been published in any academic journal or book.
All submissions must include the following:

The broad topic of the conference is ‘International Economics’.

Two prizes for the best contributions to the Research Conference will be awarded. There will be a ‘Best Conference Paper Award 12’ and a ‘Young Economist Award 12’. Each award is worth € 750.
