On November 2, 2021, HSE University – Perm will be hosting the IX International Conference on Applied Research in Economics – iCare9 in Perm. The conference focuses on research in economics, finance and management with applications to and implications for real-life problems with societal impact. Hence the conference acronym reflects its motto — iCare = I care.

Previous conferences enabled new co-authorships and saw papers later published in journals such as American Economic Review, Journal of Finance, Review of Finance, Journal of Corporate Finance, International Journal of Industrial Organization, Journal of Urban Economics, Journal of Law, Economics, and Organization, and World Development, among others. We aim to repeat this success and will consider papers relating to the broad area of applied economics and finance with implications for real-world challenges.
