Below and here are the details about the 2013 Austrian Economics Research Conference. Submissions are due December 31, 2012. For an example of the high-quality keynotes speeches, see this one from 2012!

Austrian Economics Research Conference
March 21–23, 2013
Ludwig von Mises Institute
Auburn, Alabama

The Austrian Economics Research Conference (formerly the Austrian Scholars Conference) is the international, interdisciplinary meeting of the Austrian School, bringing together leading scholars doing research in this vibrant and influential intellectual tradition. The conference is hosted by the Ludwig von Mises Institute at its campus in Auburn, Alabama.

Proposals for individual papers, complete paper sessions or symposia, and interactive workshops are encouraged. Papers should be well developed, but at a stage where they can still benefit from the group’s discussion. Preference will be given to recent papers that have not been presented at major conferences. All topics related to Austrian economics, broadly conceived, and related social-science disciplines and business disciplines including management, strategy, and entrepreneurship are appropriate for the conference. Proposals from junior faculty and PhD students are especially encouraged.

This year’s conference features a keynote lecture from Dominick Armentano and a themed symposium on competition theory and policy to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Armentano’s landmark book Antitrust and Monopoly: Anatomy of a Policy Failure. A lecture from Brendan Brown, author of The Global Curse of the Federal Reserve (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011) will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Murray Rothbard’s classic America’s Great Depression. Nikolay Gertchev of the European Commission and Robert Wenzel of Economic Policy Journal will also give keynote speeches.

The deadline for proposals is December 31, 2012. Submissions after that date will be considered as space allows. Decisions will be communicated by January 31, 2013.

The registration fee is $285 for academics, $395 for practitioners. Registration covers all sessions, three buffet dinners, coffee breaks, and daily shuttles between AU Hotel and the Institute.  To register go to mises.org/events or call 800-636-4737 or 334-321-2100.

For qualified full-time students, the registration fee to attend all sessions and dinners is waived (complete the application form at the AERC page of mises.org/events)

Hotel rooms at Auburn University Hotel are available. Phone 1-800-228-2876 or 334-821-8200 before February 28. Be sure to mention Austrian Economics Research Conference of the Mises Institute for the special rate of $114 plus tax (for single or double room).

    What is the rationale for changing the name of the annual conference?

  • 2. Peter Klein  |  4 December 2012 at 2:57 pm

    From the conference website: “The field of Austrian economics has grown dramatically since the first annual Austrian Scholars Conference in 1996. To recognize the increasing importance of Austrian economics research, not only within the university but also in research institutes and among business professionals, the Mises Institute has renamed its annual academic conference the Austrian Economics Research Conference. The aim is to focus more closely on the research tradition of Menger, Boehm-Bawerk, Mises, Hayek and Rothbard in economic theory, economic history, and political economy.”
