The Sixth World Congress of Cliometrics will be held from Thursday July 17 through Sunday July 20, 2008 at the Dalkeith Palace located near Edinburgh, Scotland. The Program Committee has put together an international program from the proposals submitted to the conference.

All members of sponsoring organizations are invited to attend. Advance registration is open. To receive the Congress book in a timely fashion, those interested in attending must register for the conference by April 15, 2008.

As with the Annual Cliometrics Conference and the previous World Congresses, papers will be available in the Congress Book, sent to all participants. Sessions will be held in the traditional Cliometrics Conference format. Rather than formal presentations, authors will provide a brief five-minute introduction of the paper and then the floor will be open for discussion by the session participants. Thus, participants will be expected to have read the papers when they attend the sessions.

Accommodations will be available at Dalkeith Palace, University of Edinburgh and local hotels.  Complete information about registration and lodging and the Congress Registration Form are available under Travel and Accommodations. Applicants are encouraged to use the online registration form. However, they will also be able to submit the required information via e-mail or post.
