As on previous occasions, the purpose of this conference is to showcase the best current research on Iran’s economy and to generate information and encouragement for future high-quality research in this area.
The criteria for the selection of papers are: (i) focus on Iran’s economy; (ii) quality of work and rigour of analysis, and (iii) history of the authors’ contributions to research on Iran's economy (this last criterion will not be applied to papers submitted by PhD students and recent graduates). The proposed topics may be in any field of economics, economic history and political economy. The Program Committee welcomes both empirical and theoretical papers that use quantitative or analytical narrative methods. The conference will have limited funds to provide partial financial support for travel and lodging costs of those presenting a paper.
Conference fees will be waived for the authors of accepted papers, session chairs, and discussants. Fees will be announced in due course. Please submit a complete draft of your paper and short CV(s) of the author(s) to the Program Committee Chair on firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that we only consider one submission per author.
