11th Annual MMF Ph.D. Conference, 11-12 June 2024

The main objective of the workshop is to provide advanced PhD economists, about to go on the job market, with an opportunity to present their research to their peers and leading researchers in the field in order to obtain feedback and practice the presentation of their key research ideas.  An added bonus is that it allows for some early dissemination of these ideas across the research and policy-making community.  As well as senior academics, the conference will be attended by economists from the Bank of England and NIESR.

We invite submissions of complete papers from PhD students who are registered for a research degree at institutions of higher education. The papers need to be in the fields of macroeconomics, monetary economics or finance, and we will consider papers dealing with theory, economic growth, international macroeconomics, monetary economics, macroeconometrics, financial macro, and economic and financial history.

Some authors will be offered the chance to take part in poster sessions instead of presenting their papers.

The workshop will commence at 11:00 on Tuesday 11 June, and will end by 17:30 on Wednesday 12 June. The MMF will cover UK travel and accommodation of participants, as required.

Each year we award the prestigious Peter Sinclair prizes of £250 (1st), £150 (2nd) and £100 (3rd) to the best paper presentations at the conference.

Important Dates:

The deadline for the submission of papers is midnight 30 April 2024.  Please submit your paper to mmf.phd.conference2024@gmail.com.

Authors of accepted papers will be notified by 7 May 2024.
