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. Abstracts should be limited to 250 words. All proposals are peer reviewed by the AERC Program Committee.
Submit your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2014. Proposals after the deadline will be considered as space permits. Decisions will be communicated by January 31.
