EALE 2021 annual conference goes virtual

EALE 2021 CONFERENCE HOSTED ONLINE BY UNIVERSITY OF PADUA

16-18 September 2021

Welcome to the EALE 2021 online conference webpage!

We have been looking forward to organizing the EALE 2021 Conference in Padua, Italy. However, the EALE Executive Committee has decided, after careful consideration, that the EALE 2021 Conference will move fully online. The continuing uncertainty about what the pandemic situation will be in September is making it impossible to plan an in-person event.

We feel that making this decision early on allows us to plan creatively for a vibrant, intellectually rich conference. The Department of Economics and Management "Marco Fanno" of the University of Padova  is excited to be your virtual host for this year’s conference as we work to keep our community connected through these unpreceded times.

The Department of Economics and Management of Padova is one of the youngest Departments in an ancient European university, which dates back to 1222. It offers one of the best Economics and Management degrees in Italy according to Censis, a leading Italian think tank and it is also a Department of Excellence endowed with special funds by the Ministry of Education.

The virtual EALE conference offers the following session types for academic exchange.

Flask talk sessions

Introduced a few years ago, flash talk sessions consist of high profile presentations around a theme, with 5 minutes presentation and 5 minutes discussion. These sessions have invited speakers.

Parallel on-line sessions

Parallel sessions will consist of 5 papers, each of them will be allocated 12 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for discussion. At the end of each session, each speaker will have the opportunity to discuss with others in a dedicated breakout room.

Parallel on-line job market sessions

In Job market sessions, job market candidates whose research is in the field of Labour Economics, will present their job market paper. The format of the sessions is like the parallel on-line sessions.

On-line poster sessions

30 papers will be allocated to a new form of on-line session. Pictures of posters will be posted on a website (15 per time slot) and will be linked to individual sessions where presenters will be able to interact with other researchers, replicating as closely as possible the in-presence poster presentation concept.

Junior/Senior network sessions

At registration, early career researchers will have the opportunity to indicate their interest in meeting a senior person in their area of interest. Network sessions will be chaired by a senior person in the field and junior researchers will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and present their research in 2-3 minutes.

Junior only sessions

Early career researchers will also have the opportunity to indicate their interest in participating in more informal sessions where they can meet other early career researchers.

Network event

We also plan a more relaxed network event open to everyone. More details to follow.
