The outbreak and spread of diseases often lead to severe economics and social consequences. In recent years, researchers in economics have paid increasing attention to the modelling of interactions between disease dynamics and their economic environment. Increasing research attention has also been placed on the socio-economic determinants of diseases and on causal inference of both the macro- and the microeconomic level.

The purpose of this conference is to investigate the economic impact of diseases, bringing together international scholars who work on various aspects of the economics of disease to exchange ideas and discuss recent results within theoretical and applied economic research.

Suitable topics include:

* Economic epidemiology

* Macroeconomic modelling of disease dynamics

* Genetic testing, insurance, and health policy

* The economics of vaccination, disease management, and disease eradication

* Economic consequences of historical epidemics

* Economic analysis of HIV, malaria or obesity

Theoretical as well as empirical contributions are welcome.

Invited Speakers:

Jerôme Adda, European University Institute

Guido Alfani, Bocconi University

Gerard van den Berg, University of Mannheim

Jürgen Maurer, University of Lausanne

Atheendar Venkataraman, Massachusetts General Hospital

Papers on relevant topics should be sent in pdf format by February 28, 2013 to Contributions from young researchers are encouraged. There is no registration fee for the conference.
