The conference consists of (a) sessions with themes selected in advance by the IARIW Council (see below), and (b) other contributed paper sessions. Accepted papers submitted via route (a) are organised by named session organisers into Plenary sessions, and „A‟, „B‟ and one additional „C‟ Parallel sessions. Papers accepted from submission route (b) are organised by the Programme Committee into the „C‟, „D‟, and Poster sessions. (This organisational structure is illustrated by the programme for the previous General Conference: see http://www.iariw.org/c2010.php)
Call for papers
Submissions of abstracts are now invited for papers to be presented in both (a) and (b) sessions. Submissions may consist of a conventional abstract, or of a longer paper outline. All submissions should contain the following information:
(i) type of submission – the name of the thematic session if submission by route (a) or „Contributed‟ if by route (b);
(ii) title of paper;
(iii) name of corresponding author;
(iv) email address and affiliation of the corresponding author;
(v) names of any co-authors (if any); and
(vi) text of the abstract.
Papers are sought in all fields of interest to the IARIW, i.e. all papers that advance knowledge about income and wealth, from both a macro and micro perspective. The topics and organisers of the main thematic sessions are given below. Papers will also be considered in other areas. The conference programme committee will group these papers into coherent sessions. Instructions for submission of abstracts will be posted shortly. The deadline for receipt of proposals is August 31, 2011.
The Plenary, „A‟, „B‟, „C‟ and „D‟ sessions will have the same format: a formal session chair will be appointed, the paper will be presented by a discussant nominated in advance and, after discussion from the floor, the author(s) will be able to respond to comments. Other papers deemed appropriate for IARIW conference presentation will be organised into one or more poster sessions. Poster sessions are an integral part of the IARIW conference, and a Poster paper prize (US$500) was instituted in 2008.
Financial support to cover travel and accommodation expenses will be available on a needs basis for a number of paper givers (for all session types). Information on this financial assistance program is available at http://www.iariw.org/finstandorders.phpThe formal method and deadline for applications will be announced later. Potential applicants should indicate informally when submitting their abstracts whether they are likely to apply for support.
