We are delighted to announce the launch of the Asian Workshop on Econometrics and Health Economics and its Inaugural Meeting, which will take place in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan, from Sunday, December 9th to Tuesday, December 11th, 2018.
The workshop series is intended to provide a forum for the development and dissemination of applications of econometrics in health economics, with a particular vision to:
- promote health economics research with an applied microeconomics focus in Asia;
- strengthen research networking within the region; and
- strengthen research networking with other regions.
This workshop follows the format of the long-running European Workshops on Econometrics and Health Economics, which was founded by Andrew Jones and Owen O'Donnell in 1992. There are no parallel sessions, sufficient time is allocated to guarantee quality discussion, and all participants stay from the beginning to the end of the program. This workshop series will run annually. The second meeting will take place again in Japan around the same time of the year, and then it will move on to other Asian countries.
The 1st Meeting features an inaugural keynote lecture by Professor Randall Ellis (Boston University). We warmly encourage you to submit your paper at:
where full further details can be found. The deadline for the paper submission is August 21st, 2018. The authors of accepted papers are encouraged to submit to Health Economics. Their papers will be handled by editors who are involved with the Workshops on Econometrics and Health Economics. We are looking forward to welcoming you to Kyoto in December!
