Pre-announcement: the 8th World Congress of Cliometrics

Remember the date!

The 8th World Congress of Cliometrics to be held in Strasbourg from July 4-7, 2017:

The World Congress is designed to provide extensive discussion of new and innovative research in historical economics and econometric history, with an expected 80-90 papers to be selected for presentation and discussion.

The World Congress website for paper submissions, hotel reservations, and conference registration will open in November 2016. Those wishing to present a paper should provide an abstract and a 3-5 page summary of the proposed paper.

We particularly encourage paper proposals from graduate students. A grant from the National Science Foundation provides competitive support for travel and accommodations for students on the program.

Each paper is devoted a 45 minute session, in which authors have 5 minutes to make an opening statement and the rest of the session (40 minutes) is dedicated to discussion among all conference participants in the spirit of the annual cliometric conferences.

All sessions will be held at the Strasbourg Convention Centre:
