Call for Papers
2020 New Zealand Virtual PhD Workshop

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the first New Zealand Virtual PhD Workshop endorsed by the New Zealand Association of Economists will take place on Friday, September 18, 2020.

The COVID-19 crisis has many negative effects, but also leads to innovative concepts and allows us to use unexploited technologies. By using online communication platforms, we can broaden participation and achieve a greater diversity of voices.

The aim of this Workshop is to promote the exchange of ideas among PhD students conducting research in all fields of economics. The Workshop offers a platform for young economists to connect, build networks, and receive feedback.

The Workshop will take place using Zoom (live streaming). Each accepted paper will be allocated 20-minutes for its presentation and 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

We cordially invite PhD students and PostDocs to send an extended abstract or full paper to: by August 14, 2020. Authors will be informed about the acceptance of their submission by the end of August
With generous support by the NZAE Education Trust, we will award a prize ($300) for the best paper and a prize ($200) for the best presentation. To be eligible for the full paper award, a full paper is required by the submission deadline. Only currently enrolled PhD students are eligible for the prizes.

We are looking forward to seeing you online!

Simona Fabrizi (University of Auckland)
Andrea Menclova (University of Canterbury)
