i. 2016 Annual Cliometric Society Conference, 20-21 May 2015, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

The annual Cliometric Society Conference in 2016 will be held on the weekend of Friday 20 May through Saturday 21 May at the University of Pittsburgh and hosted by the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, and the National Science Foundation.

The conference is designed to provide extensive discussion of new and innovative research in economic history. We consider applicants from all continents and papers addressing important topics in economic history for all countries. We particularly encourage interdisciplinary research and seek a diverse set of papers addressing local, country, regional, and global issues. Applications to present papers or to attend the conference are welcome from graduate students, junior faculty, and senior faculty in economic history as well as distinguished faculty in other fields who have research interests in economic history.

Typically, twelve papers are selected for presentation and discussion. These are sent out to all conference participants in advance. Each paper is a single session, in which authors have five minutes to make an opening statement and the rest of the hour session is devoted to discussion among all conference participants. All participants are required to have read all papers and to attend the entire conference, i.e., arrive on Thursday, May 19 and leave on Sunday, May 22. At least one author must be a member of the Cliometric Society. For membership information contact Professor Michael Haupert at mhaupert@uwlax.edu. The conference pays most hotel and flight expenses for graduate students and heavily subsidizes hotel and flight expenses for faculty and researchers.

Proposals and requests to attend the conference will be accepted beginning 2 December 2015. The deadline to submit a paper proposal or a request to attend the conference is Friday, 22 January 2016. Those wishing to present a paper should provide an abstract and a 3-5 page summary of the proposed paper. In choosing papers and participants, the host committee will assign priority to those who have not attended recently or who have never attended. Graduate students wishing to attend or submit a paper proposal must obtain a letter of recommendation from their dissertation advisor. Those whose papers are selected for presentation will be notified by Wednesday 17 February 2016 and are expected to provide a completed draft of the paper in the proper format for the conference volume no later than Friday 1 April 2015.

We STRONGLY PREFER that applicants submit their materials via the web at the following site: http://eh.net/2016-cliometrics-conference-proposal-submission/. Please email us at clio2016@hawaii.edu if you cannot submit via the web and we will make available alternative submission routes.
