We are organizing the First WID.world Conference, which will be hosted by the Paris School of Economics on December 14th and 15th, 2017.

 
WID.world was initially created as the The World Top Incomes Database in January 2011. Thanks to the contribution of over a hundred researchers, the project expanded to include series on income and wealth inequality for more than thirty countries, spanning over most of the 20th and early 21st centuries, and in some cases going back to the 19th century. To reflect the increasing scope and ambition of the database, the WTID was subsumed into WID.world in November 2015. In January 2017, with the objective of reaching yet a wider audience, we launched a new website.
 
The conference will be structured along three axes:
 
1-The releasing of the first issue of the World Inequality Report. The report will provide global estimates of income and wealth inequality drawing on the latest evidence gathered in WID.world, and will discuss implications for future research and for the global policy debate on rising inequality.
 
2- A session in honor of Tony Atkinson in the afternoon of December 14th. 
 
3- The presentation of research papers on income and wealth inequality, as well as on progress made in the DINA-Distributional National Accounts agenda.  We expect to organize four sessions, for which we are welcoming submissions of completed papers or detailed drafts.
 

Paper submission. Please submit your paper in pdf format by email to first.conference@wid.world by September 1st, 2017, indicating whether you will require funding, and whether you are a PhD student. Decisions are expected to be announced by September 11th, 2017.

Attending but not presenting a paper. Please send an email to first.conference@wid.world with your name and affiliation by September 17th, 2017. Note that it may not be possible to accept all requests if demand exceeds the space available.
