International Conference on Applied Research in Economics 2014
The Higher School of Economics-Perm invites faculty, independent scholars, practitioners, and PhD students to participate in the second International Conference on Applied Research in Economics (iCare2).
The conference focuses on papers that identify real-life problems, emphasize the potential social impact of findings, and offer solutions by utilizing modern economic approaches. Hence the conference acronym reflects its motto - iCare.
We accept submissions on a wide range of subjects. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Empirical corporate finance
- Empirical industrial organization
- Labour economics
- International economics
- Economics of development
- Political economy
This year the conference hosts two special tracks:
The track on intangibles, innovation and intellectual capital is organized by the International Laboratory of Intangible-driven Economy. It seeks to bring together researchers and lecturers from the fields of economics, finance and management. The track topics include intangible-driven performancedynamics, intellectual capital valuation, innovation strategies, and many others. The participants will have an opportunity to discuss their papers and / or research-in-process with the members of the HSE-Perm research group and international experts.
The track on Public-Private Interactions is organized by the International Centre for Public-Private Interactions and focuses on economic relationships between the state and the business. We particularly welcome contributions on public procurement, public-private partnerships, not-for-profits, and will be happy to consider papers on privatization / nationalization and other relevant topics.
The Conference Organizing Committee will cover a closing dinner and social programme. The social programme will include a visit to the Perm Opera and Ballet Theater to see a world premiere of Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni conducted by Teodor Currentzis.
The HSE – Perm will award a few grants to PhD-students and junior researchers for the most outstanding papers (200 EUR each) as a contribution to cover travel expenses.
This year the conference is partly sponsored by the Perm Krai Ministry of Education.
We look forward to meeting you in Perm in September 2014!
