Economic Research Group (ERG) organizes conferences every year with a view to connecting researchers and interested individuals through lively floor discussions. We have hosted annual Winter Conferences every year over the past nine years, seven of which were in association with the Association for Economic and Development Studies on Bangladesh (AEDSB). ERG also hosts Summer Conferences which take place typically sometime around the fourth week of July. This year, ERG aims to build a network of researchers and faculty members working in the field of Economics in Bangladesh and neighboring countries in South and South-East Asia.
ERG conferences are primarily concerned with analytical research or thought in Economics, although papers in policy and development are also welcome. This may be a working term paper for university, a thesis, a research paper being prepared for publication or even an extensive thought in current context of Bangladesh, South, and South-East Asia that demands discussion. Since the conference is primarily intended to facilitate a lively discussion and feedback for the papers, we are only open to papers that are yet to be published. To express interest, please send an extended abstract of your paper using the following link:
Upon submission, allow us at least two weeks to review the drafts. Participation will be by invitation only in order to preserve the exclusiveness of the conference.
For non-Dhaka residents, a number of scholarships are available to cover participation-related expenses. As for Non-Bangladeshis, we encourage early submission in order to facilitate the visa process. Those who require traveling to attend the conference are requested to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as there is limited provision for support towards attending the conference.
