We would like to invite you to submit a paper proposal or to express your interest in attending the 2017 CEPR Public Economics Symposium. The goal of the symposium is to provide a forum for high-quality work in public economics and to bring together economists in the field from across Europe as well as key researchers from outside the region. Paper proposals in any area of public economics are welcome. Both theoretical and empirical work will be accepted.

The event offers an opportunity for researchers from different universities and countries to discuss their work in a relaxed atmosphere and to develop long-term collaborative relationships. It also represents an opportunity for young researchers to meet and discuss their work with senior economists. The conference will bring together around 40 economists over a period of two days. In order to encourage interaction between researchers we ask that participants stay for the entire duration of the symposium. The symposium will start in the morning of Thursday, 8 June and finish mid-afternoon on Friday, 9 June.

If you are a CEPR member, please submit your paper via the CEPR online system.
