The Annual Congress of the Verein für Socialpolitik consists of a core conference with invited lectures concerning “Gender Economics” and of an Open Meeting with mixed topics. Presentations and Organised Sessions for the Open Meeting may be submitted from all fields of economics. The submissions are evaluated by anonymous referees and subsequently selected by the Programme Committee.
Membership in the Verein für Socialpolitik and acceptance of its Code of Ethics are required for presenting at the annual conference. The membership can be applied for on the homepage of the association (www.socialpolitik.org), after your paper has been accepted.
Publication of papers is optional: During the submission process, the submitter can decide wether the accepted and revised paper should be published on EconStor in time for the conference.
Topics for the invited talks on Gender Economics will include a macroeconomic perspective on the cultural effects of gender norms and the consequences of gender quotas for economic outcomes.
