2013 Toronto Austrian Scholars Conference

For readers across the pond, or those tempted to make the journey …

The annual Toronto Austrian Scholars Conference (TASC) of the Ludwig von Mises Institute of Canada will be held at the University of Toronto, November 2-3 (Saturday – Sunday).

TASC seeks papers that seek to improve the understanding of the role of markets in the economy. Submissions should seek to shed light on contemporary issues while being grounded in a praxeological reasoning. Papers are welcome from a variety of fields such as politics, sociology, and psychology, where ever they can bring relevance to economic and financial questions.

Scholars interested in presenting papers, serving as chairs/discussants, or proposing entire panels should submit proposals by Tuesday, October 1, 2013. With all submissions, please include the following information for each participant, including non-attending co-authors:

1. Name

2. Affiliation (title and institution)

3. E-mail address

4. Telephone number

5. Title of paper(s)

6. Abstract(s) of no more than 100 words

Please ensure that all attachments are either Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) or Word (.doc or .docx) format.

Please note that the conference organisers have to be free to place your paper or panel on any of the conference days. Organisers will entertain specific requests, however, if you prefer to present on either Saturday or Sunday, though no guarantees of such can be made in advance.

The registration fee for faculty members is $225, Independent Scholars $125, Observers $75, and Students $25.

Select papers from the conference will be published as Papers and Proceedings of the conference in the Journal of Prices & Markets, the flagship journal of the Ludwig von Mises Institute of Canada.

Please send your submissions by email only to David Howden at dhowden@slu.edu (with “TASC 2013” in the subject line of the e-mail).
