March 2-3, 2018 at the University of California, Irvine
The seventh annual West Coast Trade Workshop will be hosted by the University of California, Irvine, with the support of the School of Social Sciences. The goal of the conference is to take advantage of the proximity of many scholars in international economics on the West Coast. The conference will take place on March 2nd and 3rd at UCI. It will start with lunch on the 2nd and end by 2:30pm on the 3rd.
We plan to have 7-8 papers on the program, with one slot dedicated to the best graduate student submission. Papers on all topics of international economics are welcome. If you would like to submit an abstract or paper for the workshop, please do so to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 8th. We plan to notify participants by early January. Both abstracts and papers will be accepted, but preference will be given to completed papers. Those who do not present are very much encouraged to attend.
UCI will provide all conference meals, as well as hotel accommodation for one night (or two if you cannot travel on Friday morning) for all presenters. Additional funding for hotel accommodations may be available. The winner of the graduate student award will also receive support to help with travel costs.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
