The first conference on the economic impact of robots and automation will take place on October 13/14, 2022, at Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, Germany, in cooperation with the International Federation of Robotics (IFR). This conference aims to establish a platform for all economists working in the quickly growing field of robots, automation, and artificial intelligence. We also wish to provide a forum for discussion between data users and the main data provider in this field.
A keynote speech will be held by Philippe Aghion (College de France, Harvard, and LSE).
Researchers from all fields of economics are invited to present new research results and discuss possible directions for future research activities. We welcome the submission of papers with an empirical, theoretical, and/or policy orientation focusing on micro- or macroeconomic aspects of robots, automation, and artificial intelligence.
