The Cliometric Society
Fifth World Congress of Cliometrics
International University Venice, Italy
The Fifth World Congress of Cliometrics will be held July 8-11, 2004, at Venice International University, Venice, Italy. The Program Committee has put together an international program from the proposals sent by applicants to the conference.
The Conference will be held on the island of San Servolo, Venice, in the premises of Venice International University (VIU). The latter is a joint venture of six universities (Autonoma de Barcelona, Duke, LMU Munich, Tel Aviv, Waseda (Tokyo), Venice Architecture, and Venice Ca'Foscari) with the Province of Venice and the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio DI Venezia. The island, only seven minutes by boat from St. Mark's Square, consists of 11 acres of park, a beautifully restored 16th-century Benedictine convent and various residences.
All members of sponsoring organizations will be invited to attend. Advance registration will be open and conducted starting in January. Due to space limitations, those interested in attending and staying on the island should register by February 15, 2004. Online registration will remain open until June 20, 2004.
As with the Annual Cliometrics Conference and the previous World Congresses, papers will be published in the Congress Book, and participants will receive their copies of the Congress Book in advance. Sessions will be held in the traditional Cliometrics Conference format: instead of formal presentations, authors will provide a brief introduction to their work followed by an extended period of discussion involving all session participants. Thus, participants will be expected to read the papers prior to the Congress.
The Fifth World Congress of Cliometrics is sponsored by the following organizations:
