The Area Conference is intended to give an overview of the current research undertaken by members of the Public Sector Economics area of the network and to stimulate interaction and co-operation between area members. All CESifo research network members are invited to submit their papers which may deal with any topic in Public Economics.
Unlike in previous years, the 2016 CESifo Area conference on Public Sector Economics will not be held in April, but on Thursday 21st January 2016. The reason behind the unusual date change is to give participants the chance to take part in the unique, by invitation only, International Scientific Symposium on Public Policy and the Official Ceremony to mark Hans-Werner Sinn’s retirement. The symposium will be held on Friday 22nd January 2016 and places have been reserved for the participants of the Public Sector Economics conference.
Preference is given to papers over abstracts. Authors of submitted papers will be notified no later than 30 October 2015 whether their paper has been accepted for the conference. A given paper is allowed to be submitted to only one of the eight CESifo area conferences. Papers which are more related to the topic of other area conferences will be re-directed to the respective area director.
CESifo provides accommodation, and will reimburse economy travel costs for CESifo Research Fellows /Affiliates with accepted papers. All papers presented at the conference will appear in the CESifo Working Paper Series.
Scientific organiser: Professor Frederick Van der Ploeg
