NOTE: Unfortunately, this event is cancelled.


The conference focuses on technology, trade, and demographic changes and the ways they interact with employment, wages, and participation in the labor market, with a particular emphasis on the role of institutions. Understanding these relationships is key in assessing the performance of the labor market and for the design of effective labor market policies.

We invite empirical and theoretical contributions on these topics from all areas of economics and sociology with a focus on labor, education, health, or human resource management.

The conference will also host the 6th user conference of the Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the Federal Employment Agency (BA) at the Institute for Employment Research (IAB), bringing together researchers who work with the data provided by the FDZ, and facilitating exchange between researchers and FDZ staff. We therefore particularly welcome submissions on topics related to labor markets using FDZ data.
