Symposium on Development and Institutional Economics, Henan University, Kaifeng, China, June 20-21, 2015
On June 20-21, the School of Economics (Henan University) will hold its 2nd Henan Symposium on Development and Institutional Economics.
The timing of this symposium should suite almost everyone, especially those from overseas. It is deliberately scheduled to be right after the Chinese Economists Society (CES) Annual China Conference. AND for those that plan to go to the Western Economic Association (WEA) 90th Annual Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii (June 28-July 2), this will be just before the WEA Conference.
For those that not familiar with Henan University, it is the flagship university of Henan Province, which is one of the most populous provinces in China (with a population exceeding 100 million). The city Kaifeng is an ancient capital of China, the seat of the North Song Dynasty, when China experienced a surge of technological advancements. Historical and cultural site are in abundance, and is a day trip away from Luoyang (an even more famous ancient capital,), Ying ruins (dating back to 11 or 12 century B.C.), and the famous Shoaling Temple, just to name a few.
For more details, please refer to the attached call-for-papers. As we expect a lot of interest, it will be quite competitive. When you submit your abstract to the symposium organizers (see attached Call-for-Paper), please also cc me (jack.hou) so I can keep track of your interest, and perhaps have a marginal effect on paper selection.
