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.

The conference is directed by Joseph Salerno, Professor of Economics at Pace University and Academic Vice President of the Mises Institute.

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.

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 such as management, strategy, and entrepreneurship are appropriate for the conference. Proposals from junior faculty and PhD students are especially encouraged.


Besides paper sessions and symposia, the conference includes five named keynote lecturers and the awarding of the Lawrence W. Fertig Prize in Austrian Economics, and the O.P. Alford III Prize in Libertarian Scholarship.

Unable to attend? MisesTV will be broadcasting the Named Lectures live.
