SFC sessions - FMM Conference

After a first very fruitful workshop in Dijon (Going Further … Together) and a second venue in Limerick (Building a Common Language), which we hope to be highly stimulating, we will conclude this series of workshops in Berlin, during the FMM conference.

Indeed, two sessions (8 papers) will be dedicated to SFC modelling. We wish to remain within the areas described in the original call for papers (see attachment) and thus encourage papers addressing the following topics:

  • The theory of employment and unemployment
  • Possibilities and limitations of monetary and fiscal policy
  • Labour market institutions, active labour market policies, and decent jobs
  • Industrial policy, productivity and outsourcing
  • Green jobs and limits to growth
  • Working time and employment in a stagnating economy

However, papers treating other subjects related to the call for papers of the first two workshops (empirics, micro foundations, policy recommendation) will also be considered. Please note that all papers will be forwarded to the conference organizers should they decide to include SFC models in other sessions. Furthermore, more than one paper per author may be proposed, either via this call for paper or via the conference call for paper (fmm@boeckler.de).

The deadline for paper proposals is 30 June 2013. Please send an abstract (one page) to godin.antoine@gmail.com. Decisions will be made in early August. Registration forms for the introductory lectures and the conference will be made available online in mid-August. Accepted papers should be sent by 15 October to be posted on the conference web page.

Selected papers might be published after the conference in a special issue of the European Journal of Economics and Economic Policies: Intervention (EJEEP) dedicated to SFC modelling.
