We are proud to announce that AASLE 2021 will be hosted by PKU in Beijing, China on 9-11 December 2021. The paper submission is now open.
We understand that the current COVID-19 uncertainty is making travel plans difficult. We have therefore decided to give attendees the option to either join us in person or online. Please note you will not be asked to make a decision on your physical or online presence, until at least August 2021.
We invite submissions on any topic related to labour and applied economics. Submissions for presentation should include an abstract (max. 250 words) and a full paper. Contributors are invited to submit papers for consideration for by 18 July 2021 here.
Authors of accepted papers will also have the opportunity to submit their paper for consideration for a special conference issue of Labour Economics.
Job Market Session
In this year's conference in Beijing, a job market session will be dedicated to young researchers who are planning to be on the job market in 2021/2022. The AASLE 2021 job market will include presentation sessions that will be particularly advertised, so that potential employers can take part. We will also organise a dedicated session on one of the conference days where students can meet with senior academic staff to discuss their work. This will provide a great opportunity for potential employers and students to meet and exchange views.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please send an email to with your paper and a letter of support from your supervisor. The deadline to apply is 31 July 2021. As with all other submissions, registration is required for conference attendance in case the paper is accepted.
