The All-California Labor Economics Conference (ACLEC) brings together the top labor economists in California annually to present recent research. This year’s conference will be hosted by USC on Thursday, October 4th and Friday, October 5th. Silvia Helena Barcellos (CESR), Sandra Rozo (Marshall) and Arie Kapteyn (CESR) are co-organizing.

Prior conferences have been hosted by Stanford, UCSD, UC Davis, UCLA, UC Riverside, UC Santa Barbara, UC Berkeley, RAND and the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Similar to previous conferences, there will be 8-10 papers presented at the conference, starting Thursday afternoon and ending early afternoon on Friday. There will also be a graduate student poster session, reception and dinner on Thursday evening.

The conference will cover meals, as well as hotel on Thursday night, for registered participants. (Graduate students will be asked to share rooms.) Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements. Conditional on available resources, travel expenses for graduate students may be covered.

Registration will open in early August.
