CALL FOR PAPERS - 17TH YOUNG ECONOMISTS' SEMINAR
17th YOUNG ECONOMISTS’ SEMINAR (YES)
to be held at the
Dubrovnik Economic Conference (DEC) on 13 June 2024
In conjunction with the 30th Dubrovnik Economic Conference (DEC), to be held on 14–15 June 2024, the Croatian National Bank is organising the 17th Young Economists’ Seminar (YES) on Thursday, 13 June 2024. 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. The Selection Committee will give preference to the work in progress that will likely benefit the most from external feedback. The authors of up to six papers will be invited to present their work and receive feedback, as well as to participate in the full DEC. The paper judged to make potentially the most 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 12 May and depart no earlier than Sunday 16 June.
To be eligible, potential participants must be:
o Citizens of any country who are currently attending post-graduate studies in the European Union or in countries that have applied for EU membership;
o Citizens of European Union countries (or countries that have applied for EU membership) who are currently studying for an advanced degree in any country;
