CALL FOR PAPERS 16th YOUNG ECONOMISTS’ SEMINAR (YES)
Randall K. Filer
In conjunction with the 29th Dubrovnik Economic Conference (DEC), to be held on 26–27 May 2023, the Croatian National Bank is organizing the Young Economists’ Seminar (YES) on Thursday, 25 May 2023. The seminar provides young economists a unique opportunity to present and discuss their research in front of a panel of prominent scholars and journal editors. The Dubrovnik Economic Conference provides in addition a forum to interact with academics, senior policymakers, and analysts from global financial institutions.
We welcome submissions from any field of economics. Preference will be given to work in progress for which the Selection Committee believes that there will be greatest benefit from external feedback. The Selection Committee will invite the authors of up to six papers to present
their work and receive feedback, as well as to participate in the full DEC. The paper judged to be the most potentially significant contribution to the field will receive a “YES – Best Paper” award. One or two additional papers may receive a special mention award.
To benefit from these networking opportunities, we expect the authors of invited papers to arrive to Dubrovnik no later than the afternoon of Wednesday 24 May and depart no earlier than the morning of 28 May.
