ASWEDE promotes scientific research in development economics through workshops and conferences, and supports cooperation between development economists active in Sweden.
The conference is open to development economists active in and outside of Sweden. To encourage an interactive conference, the program will contain a mix of shorter and longer presentations; open both to graduate students and senior researchers. The shorter presentations can include a brief discussion of new ideas, getting feedback on survey design, or more developed papers. While conference attendance is not conditional on presenting, we strongly encourage participants to present some work, even if very preliminary. There will be a conference dinner on Thursday evening. Participants interested in presenting in the longer sessions should submit full papers while an abstract is sufficient to signal an interest in the shorter slots.

- Jörgen Levin, Örebro University
- Elin Vimefall, Örebro University

The deadline for paper submission is 10 April 2017. ASWEDE will cover accommodation and travel for all presenters and a limited number of participants. Authors and participants can email their submissions (papers) or intent to participate to ASWEDE@iies.su.se.
