Next fall, the Economics Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz will be hosting the 19th Annual Empirical Investigations in International Trade conference. At this conference, economists specializing in empirical international trade will present their current research. The goal of this conference is to promote the awareness of ongoing research in the area. It is also our hope that by bringing together people of similar interests, increased communication of ideas and future directions for the general research area will be promoted.

Previous editions of the conference have included researchers at many different stages in their careers. The atmosphere is informal and lively, characterized by significant audience participation. We do not intend to publish the papers.

Format: The conference will begin at 9am Friday, and will continue through noon on Sunday. We anticipate having a total of 15 presentations, 6 on Friday, 6 on Saturday and 3 more on Sunday morning. Each session will be an hour long, with 30-40 minutes going to the presentation, 10 minutes to the discussant, and the remaining time to be used for open discussion.

  • Note: There will be a $75 registration fee for both persenters and other conference attendees.
    • Santa Cruz faculty and students are exempt from this fee.
