Call for submissions: Online Workshop: Responding to Crisis


2020 Online Economic Workshop 
Responding To Crisis
July 27-31

The 2020 Workshop is soliciting for papers that look at how people, cultures, businesses, institutions, or governments respond to a crisis as the crisis is taking place. Crises of interest include pandemics, natural disasters, political disasters, and man-made disasters. Financial disasters may be considered if the financial disaster was caused by one of the previously mentioned disasters.

The selection committee asks that each submission designate a principal author to present the paper at the conference. An author can be listed for more than one submission, but they can only be the principal author for a single submission. The conference expects that the principal author will be available to present 11:30 am to 1 pm Eastern Daylight Time (UTC -04:00) on the date of their panel. The conference also expects the principal author to have a microphone and internet access fast enough to utilize Zoom to present their work. The panel is broadcast live on YouTube.

Papers submitted must be works in progress rather than accepted or published work. Submitters should let the program committee know at the time of application if the paper they are proposing has already been submitted for publication. The last date to submit a paper proposal is May 15th.  Papers can be submitted at www.oehw.org.
