Call for Papers: CEPRA/NBER Workshop on Ageing and Health

Submit your detailed abstracts or full papers until December 2, 2018

The Center for Policy Research on Ageing (CEPRA) at Univesità della Svizzera Italiana (USI), Lugano Switzerland, and the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) are pleased to announce a US-European workshop on “Ageing and Health.”
The workshop will take place in:

Lugano, Switzerland, 14-15 June 2019

The workshop aims to facilitate the networking of both young and senior scientists and to promote the exchange of research ideas in the economics of ageing, health and health care. In particular, the workshop welcomes contributions on health at older ages; physical and cognitive functioning and their association with labor market and broader socioeconomic status; work disability; retirement choices such as savings and labor supply; longevity and well-being; and long-term care.

To provide a conducive environment for the exchange of ideas, the workshop is limited to a small number of presenters and discussants.
Participants are expected to attend the entire workshop, which will be hosted by the Univesità della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano from the morning of June 14th to mid-afternoon June 15th.

We will cover the cost of accommodations and an economy-class advance-purchase airfare for one author per paper.
The deadline for submitting detailed abstracts or full papers (in PDF format) is 2 December 2018. Submissions may be uploaded here.

The conference organizers welcome submissions of both empirical and theoretical research, and encourages submissions by scholars who are early in their careers, who are not NBER affiliates, and who are from groups that are underrepresented in the economics profession. Papers already been accepted for publication and that will be published by June 2019 are not eligible for presentation.

Authors of accepted papers will be notified by 7 January 2019. Please direct any questions to confer©
