25th Annual Conference
Join us in Torino

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 25th annual  Conference of the European Association of Labour Economists to be held in Torino, Italy, on 19-21 September 2013.

After 25 conferences EALE decided to go back to the city where we once started 25 years ago and where the founding conference of the EALE took place. The conference will be hosted by the Department of Economics "S Cognetti de Martiis", the University of Torino.

The conference will include invited lectures, topic-related invited sessions, parallel sessions and poster sessions.

Invited lectures:
Joshua Angrist (MIT)
Andrea Ichino (University of Bologna)
Francis Kramarz (CREST)

Types of Sessions
There are different ways to present research output at a conference. The usual way is through presentations in a parallel session in which 3 to 4 researchers talk about their work using a presentation program such as PowerPoint. At the end of the presentation there is time for questions. In a poster session the researcher presents information through a poster. Along with his fellow presenters, the researcher waits for passing colleagues to briefly present their work and answer questions. There are pros and cons to each format. In a parallel session the size of the audience is limited. In a poster session the presenter has to tell his/her story many times, but the potential audience is substantially larger and the interaction between presenter and audience can be more intense.

At EALE conferences both formats are used and papers have the same status irrespective of the format. Papers presented in a poster session can be submitted to the special conference issue of Labour Economics and poster presenters can be rewarded with the Young Labour Economists' Prize for the best paper at the conference. The council of EALE stimulates poster sessions by awarding a prize for the best poster presented at the conference.

The conference will allow for informal research collaboration and, not least, some time to enjoy the beauty of Torino.  We look  forward to welcoming you in Torino!
