The third CEPR Annual Meeting of the International Macroeconomics Programme (IMF) will take place 15-16 November 2018 and will be hosted by the National Bank of Belgium and Université Libre de Bruxelles.

The International Macroeconomics and Finance (IMF) Programme is one of the three successors to the International Macroeconomics (IM) Programme, and this meeting replaces the Macroeconomics of Global Interdependence (MGI) Meeting.

We invite submissions on the following topics:
• International macroeconomics and stabilisation policy
• International financial architecture
• Currency and financial/debt crises
• Exchange rates, policy regimes and currency unions
• Trade, finance and macroeconomic dynamics
• Currency and international financial markets

The sponsoring institutions can cover accommodation and travel according to the new CEPR guidelines for presenters and discussants. However, there is limited travel and accommodation funding available, and we would like to facilitate the participation of young researchers. We thus encourage more senior participants to use their own grants to cover costs. Please indicate in your reply whether you will be able to cover your own costs, or whether you will require funding to attend.

How to apply
For CEPR members, please submit your paper via the CEPR online system by logging in here. If you do not have a personal profile to use this area of the CEPR website as yet, you can create one here. You may also want to refer to our Guidelines on how to register online for CEPR Meetings at here.

If you have any difficulty in applying or you are NOT a CEPR member, please email Amanda Vincent-Rous in the CEPR events team, avincentrous@cepr.org with the subject header “IMF Programme Meeting 2018”. Please include the paper you wish to submit in the email, or indicate if you would like to participate as a general participant. Also state if travel / accommodation funding is required and if you’re willing to act as a discussant.

If you wish to attend please do ensure that your application and paper reach CEPR by June 22, 2018. Only full-length papers will be considered. We aim to notify successful applicants by July 14.

All papers presented at the conference will be selected through this open submissions process. Please note that there will be time for only a small number of presentations, with the conference running all day on the 15th and through lunch on the 16th November 2018.
